  • 1 compressed cup of baby spinach or 80 gms/2.8 oz
  • 1/2 cup hemp hearts/hulled hemp seeds
  • 1/3 cup EVOO- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tspns minced garlic- or to taste
  • Salt to taste


  • Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until everything comes together and has been well blended. If you want a smoother pesto then simply process until you have the desired texture.
  • Season with salt once you have processed the pesto as Parmesan cheese does increase the salt content.


If you want to thin your pesto out simply add more olive oil, tablespoon at a time, until you get the desired consistency.
Store in the fridge for up to 5 days. Recipe is also suitable to freeze.
