Our Top 7 Hemp Recipes of 2020

December 5, 2020
Hemp Co. Admin

This year, we continued to dive deeper into the marvellous recipes using the different types of hemp ingredients that we have available.  We’ve been using hemp flour, hemp seed, and hemp protein in a wide range of ways, and have seen some even more great uses of our products in brand new recipes from the skilled chefs that have been keen to try hemp! 

Hemp seed is essentially a superfood that can be mechanically processed (yes, without chemicals!) into different forms based on the methods used.  Each state that hemp seed can end up taking has its nutritional benefits; whether it’s the flour which is higher in fibre and lower in protein, or the protein powder which is lower in fibre and higher in omega oils.  Most of all, it’s vegan friendly!

The bottom line is that we think that everybody should be using hemp products in their food.  There’s a lot of research showing the benefits – you can read more about it all here, here, and here!

For now, we’re going to jump ahead and share our seven favourite hemp recipes of 2020 – And we even have a little cookbook at the end for those who want to take their home hemp cooking to the next level.

Isn’t it amazing to see the variety of delicious meals that are prepared with the addition of hemp products?  

It’s 2020, and Hemp foods are the ‘New Normal’ now.  In just over three years, Australia has gone from not being allowed to eat hemp, to being one of the most accepting of a product that used to be illegal for… Well, no good reason.  

The most exciting part?

This momentum doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon.  And as time goes on, we can’t wait to see how many more ways we learn to use hemp in our food!
