Arugula and Hemp Seed Pesto

A delicious gluten-free, Vegan, and nut free pesto for folks with food allergies or sensitivities. Superb as a pasta sauce, this pesto would be great as a spread on wraps or sandwiches, as a sauce on pizza, as a topping on grilled meat or veggies, etc. I love the use of Hemp seeds as a nut alternative - especially for its protein content. Protein from hemp seeds is complete, containing all 10 essential amino acids, making it superior relative to almost every other plant-based source of protein. It’s also high in plant-based omega-3s and because hemp seeds and hemp-based foods are raw, they maintain their high level of nutrients.
