Hemp Seed Pesto
Prep time
Total time
Spread on sandwiches, toss with hot pasta or use as a sauce for pizza. There's nothing you can't do with this smooth, creamy pesto!
Serves: 2 cups
  • 2 small cloves garlic
  • ¾ cup hemp seeds
  • 5 cups packed greens (I used cilantro and spinach - but use any combination of leafy greens and herbs that you like)
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 2 -4 Tbsp water
  1. Place garlic cloves in a food processor and pulse a few times to finely chop.
  2. Add hemp seeds and half the greens and whirl until greens are mostly chopped. Scrape down the sides, add remaining greens and blend once again.
  3. When greens are mostly chopped, add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Add water as needed to achieve a sauce-like consistency.
  4. Taste for seasonings and add more salt, pepper or lemon as needed.
  5. Toss with hot pasta, spread on pizza, add to wraps and sandwiches or use as a dip for veggies.
