Teeny little hemp seeds (or hearts, if you prefer) are full of protein, essential fatty acids and essential nutrients. Creamy and delicious, they can be found hidden beneath the hard outer shell of the hemp seed.
This twist on hummus is super-nutritious, with just a handful of real-food ingredients. Have some fun by adding some olive tapenade on top, roasted red peppers or a drizzle of white truffle flavored olive oil.
