Rinse quinoa in a mesh strainer with cold water. Transfer to a pot and add the 2 cups cold water and a nice pinch of salt. Bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to a simmer, and leave the lid of the pot slightly ajar while cooking. Simmer for about 15 minutes, or until quinoa is plump, the water is absorbed, and you see the tiny little outer “shells” of the quinoa grain coming loose in the pot.
Remove quinoa from heat and let sit, covered, for 5 minutes or so. Fluff with a fork and set aside.
While quinoa is cooking, boil fresh or frozen peas till warm and tender. Drain and set aside.
Mix quinoa, peas, basil, and hemp seeds in a large bowl. Whisk together the oil, lemon juice, maple syrup, dijon mustard, 1/4 tsp sea salt, and black pepper. Pour over the quinoa salad mixture, and serve warm or cold.
Tabouli with a high-protein twist! A tasty raw summer dish that doesn’t require any cooking and comes together in less than 10 minutes. Serve best with Crackers and hummus for a mezze platter.
1 cup fresh parsley
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
1/4 teaspoon sea salt (I used 1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon)
4 medium yellow vine or Jersey tomatoes, chopped (I used 2-3 large red tomatoes)
1 cup shelled hemp seeds
2 tablespoons hemp oil (I used olive oil)
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1. In a food processor fitted with the “S” blade, process the parsley, mint, and sea salt until minced.2. Transfer the herbs and salt to a large mixing bowl. Add the tomatoes, hemp seeds, hemp oil, and lemon juice.
Hemp seeds are in the seed/nut family, and have a nutty flavor and crunchy texture, kind of like flax or chia.
What’s so healthy about hemp?
Hemp seeds are a great plant source of protein and healthy fat, and are also rich in vitamins and minerals. Some people claim to have more energy and improved digestion after adding hemp seeds to their diet (probably because of the fiber, protein, and healthy fat content).
Should I start eating hemp?
If you’re a vegetarian or just trying to eat more plant-based proteins, give hemp seeds a try. They are especially good for people who like to sprinkle a little crunch on top of their yogurt, smoothies, oatmeal or salads. Definitely worth working into your nut & seed rotation.
Are there any reasons not to eat hemp?
Like all nuts and seeds, hemp seeds are a dense source of calories and fat. Two tablespoons has about 85 calories and 7 grams of fat (the heart-healthy kind of fat), so while they are healthy, I don’t recommend you sprinkle hemp seeds on everything you eat. But if you replace some of the less-healthy fats in your diet with any nuts/seeds – hemp included – you’ll be doing your body a favor.
What can I do with these little seeds?
Sprinkle them on yogurt, oatmeal, smoothies, and salad. Add them to granola, baked goods, or bread. Here are tons of delicious and unique recipe ideas using hemp.
