Hemp Seed Pesto Sauce

Hemp Seed Pesto Sauce
This hemp seed pesto sauce is a great alternative to traditional basil pesto sauce for those who are looking for a different taste and nutritional value. Using hemp seeds instead of traditional pine nuts adds a nutty flavor and extra protein to the sauce. The Sadaf Extra Virgin Olive Oil and pine nuts provide a rich and nutty taste that pairs well with the basil and cheese. This pesto can also be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.


Ingredients:

  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup hemp seeds
  • 1/4 cup Sadaf Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp Sadaf Pine Nuts
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. In a food processor, combine the basil leaves, hemp seeds, Sadaf Extra Virgin Olive Oil, garlic, Sadaf Pine Nuts, Parmesan cheese, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
  2. Pulse the ingredients until they are well combined and form a smooth pesto sauce. If the sauce is too thick, add a little more olive oil until it reaches the desired consistency.
  3. Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed.
  4. Serve the pesto sauce over pasta, grilled vegetables, or as a spread on sandwiches.
