Hemp Heart Pesto

Hemp seeds, also referred to as hemp hearts are technically a nut. They have a mild, nutty flavour, in my opinion, reminiscent of a pine nut combined with a sesame seed. They are a rich source of essential fatty acids, linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3). Hemp hearts are also a great source of high-quality protein.

I absolutely love pesto with roast veggies or pasta, on a platter, with a nourish bowl, as a dip- the possibilities are endless. This recipe is a great way to get in some healthy fats and protein as well as a good dose of greens. Even better it's a good way to use up any sad green vege and reduce food wastage. My rocket was starting to wilt so I turned it into this vibrant pesto- you could use kale or spinach or any herbs. Yumm!
