Hemp butter – recipe. A great addition to sandwiches
Healthy fats are an essential part of a well-balanced diet and one way to use them can be hemp butter.
- 5 tablespoons of good quality butter,
- 2 grams of dried hemp or hemp tea,
- a dash of salt.
The most important part of preparing hemp butter is to melt the butter skillfully. Put it in a small saucepan and on low heat (this is very important!) wait until the butter melts. Then add to it very finely ground dried (you can also use hemp tea with additives for a more interesting flavor) and cook for about 45-60 minutes. After this time, strain the contents of the saucepan, add a little salt and transfer the finished butter to a container. Try to strain it very thoroughly so that the finished hemp butter is thick. Put the finished hemp butter in the refrigerator. Done! After a few hours you can enjoy the natural taste of hemp butter.

How about flavorful hummus?
Hummus is a real hit in recent years. It is reached not only by vegetarians, because it goes sensationally with fresh bread. It is worth preparing homemade hummus, because it is much more flavorful than the one available in stores.
- a can of chickpeas,
- 5 tablespoons of tahini paste (to buy in health food stores),
- 2 cloves of garlic,
- a dash of lemon or lime juice,
- ground hemp seeds,
- a tablespoon of hemp oil,
- a teaspoon of cumin,
- salt and pepper.
Drain the chickpeas – pour the water from the can into a separate bowl, as you will need it. Put the chickpeas in the blender and add a little water from the can. Start blending slowly, gradually adding other ingredients: chopped garlic, ground hemp seeds, a tablespoon of hemp oil, cumin, lemon juice, tahini, a pinch of salt and pepper. From time to time, check that the hummus has the right consistency. If it is too thick, add a little more water. You can serve the finished hummus with the addition of hemp oil. Then sprinkle it with hot bell pepper powder or chopped parsley. You have complete freedom here. Bon appétit!
