Hemp Seed Pesto by LOJA

Updated: Jul 17, 2020

This is a great way to transform hulled hemp seeds into a creamy pesto which can be added to various everyday dishes making them more appetising and nutritious. The main difference between this pesto and the traditional one is that pine nuts are replaced with hemp seeds (also increasing the amount of protein).


Basil, fresh – 2 large bunches

Hulled hemp seeds – ¼ cup

Parmesan-type cheese, grated – ¼ cup

Olive oil – 2–3 tbsp

Garlic – 1 clove

Lemon juice – 1 tbsp

Salt – ¼–½ tsp

Preparation: Put all the ingredients in a container and blend until you get a uniform, creamy mixture. A little bit of water can be added, if a thinner consistency is desired. Add more olive oil, if a more oily consistency is desired. Olive oil can be partly substituted with hemp oil. In the summer, when fresh basil is more available, you can prepare a larger amount of pesto and put in the freezer in small portions. This provides a possibility to enjoy summer taste in the middle of winter!

Bon appétit!
