Hempseed has a rich, nutty flavour and can be consumed as an oil, or in seed form. It is a strong source of omega-3 essential for vegans and vegetarians. Packed with high sources of protein, this hummus is great for topping roast vegetables, salads, spread on pumpernickel or with fresh vegetables. Sprinkle with extra hempseeds and sesame seeds to serve.
