I saw that you’re newly excited about hemp seeds. In addition to that great-looking pesto, how else are you using them?
I was totally uninterested in hemp seeds until I read that they actually taste good! The seeds have a mild, nutty flavor, so you can sprinkle them on all sorts of savory foods. So far, pesto has been my favorite vehicle for hemp seeds. I’ve also sprinkled them on salads and on avocado smashed on toast for a little extra protein. I tried adding hemp seeds to my smoothie the other day, but it made the final texture kind of grainy. I don’t think I’ll do that again.
