We all love eating with Hemp! It’s highly diverse in use, nutritious, and can be quickly added to any meal! Whether you’re pouring some Hemp Seeds on a smoothie bowl, adding them on top of your dinner, making a Hemp Protein shake, or even baking with Hemp Flour, it’s all relatively simple.
The nutritional content of Hemp Seed makes it a superfood in our eyes. It’s loaded with healthy Omega Oils (3, 6, & even 9), magnesium, potassium, iron, fibre, and protein. In fact, protein makes up about 25-30% of the content of Hemp Seed! This is why it makes such a great protein powder when processed correctly. If you’d like to read more about the nutritional content of Hemp Seed, head over to the blog dedicated to this topic!
We had some of our favourite vegan food personalities try our Hemp food products and make some marvellous creations with them!
…So without further ado, here are 7 tasty, nutritious Hemp food recipes that you can easily try at home.
Heavenly Hemp Burger
Ingredients: (serves 2)
Veef (By Fenn Foods) classic burger patties, 1 box
1 sweet potato (medium size, cut into chips)
1 prepared beetroot (can use a can of diced beetroot for convenience)
1 cup, cherry tomatoes
Pickles (4-6 spears)
Handful of spinach
Handful of lettuce
Plant based cheese
Cheese burger sauce (Made With Plants) and hemp seeds (Margaret River Hemp Co) to serve
Cut sweet potato into chips and cook in the air fryer for 20mins on 200degrees shuffling them halfway through to cook evenly. The oven also works, too!
Meanwhile, start preparing the rest of your veggies. Dice, slice and/or grate to your liking. All ingredients will be raw except the onions so keep them aside.
Heat up your fry pan, add a small amount of oil (I used EVOO) and begin cooking Veef burgers as per box instructions. Throw your onions into fry along with the burgers.
Once your sweet potatoes, burgers and onions are ready.
Time to assemble your burger
Start with the lettuce and spinach on the bed of the burger.
Next, portion quantities of your veg around the bowl. Don’t forget your sweet potato chips!
Add burger patty to the middle of the bowl along with cheese and onions.
Top with sauce and hemp seeds. (I went with cheese burger sauce but tomato or barbecue would work nicely too)
