Meal planner: Hemp happy
New World brings you three fresh new recipes that include trendy, healthy hemp.
The legalisation of low-THC hemp for use in food has seen an avalanche of hemp-based products arrive on our supermarket shelves. Hemp oil, hemp crackers, hemp cookies, hemp drinks – how do you choose? The thing you need to know about including protein-rich, high fibre hemp in your diet is – it’s all about the seeds. These mini powerhouses are nutty and fabulous eaten solo or you can add them to a salad like we have here. Hemp oils and flours are all made from hemp seeds. Sharing the same flavour profile, there’s loads of ways to use them. This week we show you how.

Ingredient in focus: This week we are focusing on hemp, obviously. These recipes show you how to include it in your diet, but why should you? Hemp seeds are rich in protein, fibre, beneficial fatty acids - including omega-3s and omega-6s – calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, not to mention folate, vitamin C, some B vitamins, and vitamins A and E. Add to this the fact that it is a fast-growing plant that is beneficial to soil quality and requires little water and you’ll surely want to join “Team Hemp”.
