A super easy, five minute Hemp Seed Pesto. Organic Hemp Seeds are filled with Omega 3 and 6, protein, and the rare Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA). You can make this a vegan or paleo treat as well, simply by omitting the cheese, or including a vegan alternative instead. This spread is great to enjoy on pasta, crackers, or as a dip for your favorite vegetables!
