If you’re looking for more gourmet inspiration, here are some ideas on how to use hulled hemp seeds:
All the ingredients are used in equal amounts, preferably 2 cups. You need sesame seeds, hulled hemp seeds, sunflower seeds, coconut flour, dates, and peanut butter. Add the seeds and coconut flour to a food processor and mix until you get a flaky consistency. Add the dates and peanut butter and mix until you have a thick, sticky dough you can easily press between your fingers. Line a baking pan with parchment paper and firmly press the dough into the pan. Freeze the bars for 30-60 minutes, then lift them out of the pan and slice. Good appetite!
You’ll need 1/2 cup pine nuts, 1/4 cup of hulled hemp seeds, 4 cups fresh basil leaves, 2 garlic cloves, lemon juice, 2 tbs hemp seed oil, salt, and oregano, and an optional 1/4 cup of Parmesan.
To prepare the hemp seed pesto, heat a small frying pan over medium heat and add hemp seeds. Stir frequently to avoid burning, and lightly toast them. Next, combine the toasted hemp seeds with pine nuts, basil, garlic, lemon juice, oregano, and Parmesan (if desired) in a food processor. Blend the mixture until it becomes a crunchy paste. While the motor is running, slowly add hemp oil until you reach the desired consistency. Finally, add salt according to your preference.
Essentially, hulled hemp seeds have been stripped of their outer shell, whereas whole seeds retain the fibrous outer layer. Chewing whole seeds requires some effort, as you need to break through the body, but the effort is worthwhile as they have a great taste and are not difficult to chew.
So what are you waiting for? Nutty, yummy, hemp-like! They have a light yellow color and a rich nutty flavor worth trying. Add some funk to your diet and give hemp seeds a try.
