Artichoke heart - hemp pesto!

Artisokansydän - hamppupesto!
Awesomely rich paste on fresh bread, as well as Tapas, Mezze and Antipasto plates! Also try with pasta. Works!
  • 1 jar of artichoke hearts in water
  • 50 g parmesan powder
  • 0.5 dl olive oil
  • 100 g roasted salted cashew nuts
  • 75 g HamppuFarm peeled hemp seeds
  • 75 g HamppuFarm hemp seeds
  • half an organic lemon juice and grated peel
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • a handful of fresh basil and parsley
  • black pepper
  • a drop of hemp oil for decoration. (see pictures)
Drain the liquids from the artichokes and squeeze them dry. Cut them in half.
Roast hemp seeds in a pan until they smell like popcorn and when they are nicely toasted brown. Be careful not to burn them.
Purée all the ingredients in a blender or with a hand mixer.
Serve with fresh bread, or as part of cold appetizers. Drizzle some beautiful green hemp oil on top.
You can get a vegan version when you replace the cheese with extra nuts and hemp seeds. And you can leave out the honey.
You can share and tell your friends about this awesomeness!
