Healthy Pesto Recipe Made from Hemp Seeds and Oil

 
I love a plate of pasta with freshly made pesto sauce.   Classic pesto is traditionally made from fresh basil, extra virgin olive oil, pine nuts or walnuts, and grated Parmesan or Pecorino Romano cheese.  This easy and fast recipe substitutes hemp oil for the olive oil, and hemp seeds for all but one tablespoon of the pinenuts and eliminates the cheese.  The result is a delicious, super healthy pesto sauce that is much easier on the wallet:


Ingredients:

1 cup      Hemp Seed Oil
1/2 cup   Fresh Basil Leaves (tightly packed)
1 TB       Hemp Seeds (shelled)
1 TB       Pine Nuts
1 TB       Lemon Juice
1-2          Garlic Cloves, chopped
Pinch      Sea Salt

Instructions:

Place all ingredients into a blender for a few minutes.
