Yes, hold on to your hats, an actual recipe*. I know, it’s been a while, right?
Well I’ll be honest, this isn’t actually my recipe. I didn’t invent it. Hang on, what the fuck? I could just totally lie and say I did invent this recipe. How would you even know?
So this is a recipe I made. It’s awesome.
Ha ha. Oh the lords! I do love that scorey out thing, it’s my new year’s resolution to use it in every single post from now on.
Ok so this recipe is donated by a very nice man who has quite honestly reignited my spark in creating some delicious raw food and making food beautiful again. More about that later…
It’s called Hemptation Dressing – how awesome a name is that? I didn’t even make that up! God, nothing like getting shown up on my own blog, right? Hmm.
Hemp is full of sexy omegas (3 & 6), aminos and is a complete protein. It’s so ridiculously good for you it should have its own parade once a month and be made to wear a little crown. This recipe also contains chia seeds which we all know turn you in to a fully fledged warrioress (yes, that is a word. 416 points on the scrabble board). I’m on a proper chia rampage at the moment. Yes, rampage. How good a word is that?
Pour this dressing over a delicious leafy green salad (as shown) with pea shoots, edible flowers, chopped pear, capers, cucumber, courgette and love.
Alternatively, bring Michael Hutchence and Jeff Buckley back from the dead and pour it over both of them and lick it off. Then realise you probably have quite a sick mind. And a perverted one. Yeah…
Whatever you do with this dressing it should be shared with someone you love in the middle of the living room floor – picnic-style!
½ cup Hemp oil (cold pressed)
½ cup Carrot & Orange Juice (Marks & Spencer bought – so sue me)
1 Lime, juiced
Parsley, small handful
Coriander, large handful
Garlic, 1 clove
Chia seeds, 1 tsp
Ginger, 1cm square
Salt and Pepper
Combine hemp oil with carrot & orange juice (equal amounts). Add chia seeds (this thickens the dressing and gives you samurai skills), garlic, parsley, coriander, lime juice, ginger and salt and pepper to taste. Blend using triblest or blender of choice. If too thick add some spring water.
This will keep well in the fridge for a few days in an airtight container until you figure out a way to bring back Michael Hutchence…
