Hemp is an incredibly versatile plant, and has many uses not only as an industrial product or dare we say it… a narcotic, but also in food. Hemp also happens to be one of the earliest domesticated plants known to man.
As a food source, hemp can be consumed in a number of different ways. It can be eaten raw, sprouted, ground into a meal, made into hemp milk (similar to soy milk), used for baking and even prepared as tea.
Hemp seed is also great in salad, such as this Hemp Seed and Avocado Salad recipe below.
- 5 leaves red fire lettuce – torn into small pieces
- ¼ cup hemp hearts
