A traditional hummus is made using chickpeas but here is a version which is much richer in protein because of the use of hemp hearts or hemp shelled seeds. It makes for a great dip with chips, lavash crisps, pita bread, or can be used as a spread too.


  • 400gm      chickpeas (cooked, drained and rinsed) 
  • 2tbsp        hemp hearts 
  • 2tbsp        fresh lemon juice 
  • 1/4 tsp      cumin 
  • 1/2 tsp       sea salt 
  • tbsp        hemp seed oil 
  • 1 tsp          garlic 
  •  tbsp       water 


Blend all ingredients together in a food processor or blender until smooth. Drizzle some more hemp seed oil on top.
