Hemp Seed Pesto

Hemp seed is high in protein and has a delicate flavor similar to sunflower seeds and works well in pestos. This is a classic basil pesto with a high protein twist.

  • 1 cup Basil leaves, washed washed
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese grated or chopped
  • 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup Hulled Hemp Seed


Step 1

Combine basil, Parmesan cheese and olive oil in a blender or food processor and blend to preferred texture.*

Step 2

Add hemp seed and blend just until mixed.**

Step 3

Serve immediately or store in a covered container for up to a week.


*Shorter processing leaves larger chunks of cheese. **Add the hemp last and blend until its combined well.

Serve with crackers, fresh vegetables, as a sandwich spread or tossed with pasta.
