I’ve got a new obsession – Hemp. I’ve been putting it in everything recently, from porridge to chocolate bars (more on that coming soon!)
It has many benefits including:
* Excellent source of essential fatty acids including Omega 3, 6 and GLA in the perfect balance.
* More digestible protein than meat, whole eggs, cheese, cows milk or any other high protein food.
* Rich in Vitamin E.
* Increases energy levels & metabolic rate.
I’ve been looking for something to jazz up my salads for a while now, and this stuff hits the spot.
Hemp Seed Pesto
2 handfulls Hemp Seeds (I used Neals Yard Wholefoods)
1 bunch Basil
1 small garlic clove
Good glug of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (I used around 100ml)
Pinch of Sea Salt
Add everything into your blender/food processor and blitz. (I prefer using a blender as it becomes smoother)
Add more oil if you wish
Enjoy over salads / for a dip with some bread / for a pasta sauce!
