simple summer hemp tabouli

There is nothing like a fresh bunch of parsley to make one crave tabouli salad, bright and green, fresh and crisp. My mother in law is visiting this week and she came home from the local market with a huge bunch of organic parsley, and immediatly I put the couscous on!

quickly boil 1 cup of water along with a glug of brags and season with S+P and lemon peel, add 1 cup of couscous, stir and remove from heat and cover, set aside for 5 minutes.

meanwhile finely chop 1 bunch of fresh parsley and toss it in a large bowl.

give the lot a good glug of olive oil as well as hemp oil (about 1/4 cup+ total)

add 3 cloves of minced garlic

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

season with S+P

add 1/2 cup hemp hearts

Once the couscous has sat for 5 minutes, fluff it with a fork and add it to the parsley with, toss and refrigerate for an hour, then enjoy!

This is lovely when you substitute millet for couscous to make it gluten and wheat free!

Divine Hemp Chocolate Brownie

Divine Hemp Chocolate Brownies: Gluten Free, Lactose free, High Protein, Ultra gooey.

Yum, the other day I was totally inspired by this cocoa-ee brownie recipe I found online here and I gave it a whirl at the cafe, and it turned out pretty darn good… I wanted to make it a little more chewy and I really wanted to use my great new Organic hemp flour… So I gave it a SOLE kick at home and it turned out just right! Super dense, really rich and the dates I added injected a caramel sauce like element which threaded it’s way through the whole brownie. When I remake this I will use a dark chocolate, cut into little chunks and sprinkled on the top rather than the milk chocolate bits I had in hand… alternatively a boozy chocolate gnache would be elevate this brownie to white tablecloth dessert!

The only dairy in these brownies came from our sweet little hens.

In a mixer bring together;

2 fresh eggs

1 Tbsp vanilla

1 tsp sea salt

9 whole dates, pitted and torn into quarters

2 Tbsp each: unsulphured molasses, honey, and brown rice syrup

1/2 cup of almond butter

1/2 cup of organic hemp flour

1/2 cup pure cocoa power

1/2 cup of chocolate pieces (I just cut up a chocolate bar)

1 tsp baking power

Combine everything together and pour into a prepared small square pan.

Sprinkle the top with organic hemp seeds and more pieces from your chocolate bar.

Bake at 325º for 20-25 minutes. Don’t worry about pulling a toothpick clean, the inside will set as it cools. Just make sure the top is firm-ish

dig in while they are warm.. its so worth burning your fingers for!
