Hemp Seed Tabbouleh
We love this high-protein hemp version of one of our favorite and easiest Mediterranean/Middle Eastern Salads: Hemp Seed Tabbouleh. We love this with some fresh, warm pita bread, and for a little extra yumminess, you can add avocado — because we pretty much put avocado on everything.
Makes 4 servings
Prep time: 15 minutes
1 cup fresh parsley
½ cup fresh mint leaves
¼ - ½ tsp sea salt
3 large red vine tomatoes, chopped
1 cup hemp seed hearts (we used Manitoba Harvest Organic Hemp Hearts)
2 tbsp hemp oil (we used Nutiva Organic Cold Pressed Hemp Oil)
2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon
Dash of lemon pepper
In a food processor, process parsley, mint and sea salt until minced (or if you don’t have a food processor, just chop everything really fine).
Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl.
Add chopped tomatoes, hemp seeds, hemp oil, lemon juice and lemon pepper. Mix well and serve (or refrigerate for 30 minutes so juices can be absorbed).
