Hemp Seed Dressing


  • 1/2 cup shelled hemp seeds
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seed oil
  • 1 1/2 medium cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 – 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt + pepper
  • small handful fresh basil, or parsley


Place all ingredients [except basil] in a high-powered blender and blend on low working to high until smooth. Scrape the sides and blend again. Taste and add more lemon juice/zest or s+p if desired. Add in basil and blend for another 5+ seconds until finely chopped and incorporated.

The dressing will seem thin but thickens after sitting for 5-10 minutes and even more once chilled. Store in a jar in the fridge sealed for 4-5 days. Stir before using and thin out with a bit or water or lemon juice if needed.

"Why use up the forests which were centuries in the making and the mines which required ages to lay down, if we can get the equivalent of forest and mineral products in the annual growth of the hemp fields?"
