Recipe: Vegan Hemp Pesto

Vegan Hemp PestoMaking 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.
