Making hemp food isn’t always the easiest thing to do in a quick pinch and so last weekend I experimented with making a Vegan hemp Pesto that I could then use throughout the week in various other meals. By doing this I was incorporating hemp into my whole weeks diet instead of just a couple meals. I chose vegan hemp pesto due to the simplicity of the recipe as well as the variety of sandwiches, pizza, stir-fry etc. I can make with it. It was a huge success and thus I must share with you all the recipe of the week.

I was speaking to a close friend the other day who mentioned that Hemp Protein was separated and that’s how come it can have a higher content of protein in the powder then the actual seeds. I told him I was going to research this as I, being the one to sell hemp, believed they just crushed up the whole seed to make the protein powder. O.K. I admit, I was hugely wrong!! I did research and found out not only does protein powder contain more protein then the actual Hulled Hemp Seeds, I found out how it was made and wanted to share it with you.
