Hemp seeds are SO versatile and unlike cashews (or almonds!) no soaking time making them so nice for blending into things.

Ingredients

8

oz Hemp Seed

2

cup+leaves,+whole Basil

1/2

tsp salt

1

Freshly ground black pepper

2

tbsp lemon juice

3

clove garlic, minced (1 cloves if you?re not a garlic fan)

2/3

cup water (or less)

2

tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Recipe Directions for Hemp Seed Pesto Raw

  1. Place hemp seeds in a food processor fitted with the S blade. Grind till they?re powdery.


  2. Add basil and pulse to combine well.


  3. Add salt, pepper, lemon, garlic, and pulse again.


  4. With the motor running, add water in a thin stream, as if you were making a nut pate. Stop once in a while to scrape the bowl. Keep adding water until the pesto is still quite thick, but not pasty.


  5. Keep motor running, and finish the pesto by drizzling in the 2 tbsp EVOO. This isn?t necessary, but it?ll give the pesto a more traditional mouthfeel and flavor!
