I’m currently under the weather, and as a result have only been wanting to eat soup and roasted veggies. Craving’s aside, I know how important protein is to the healing process, so to help boost my protein intake I made this dip.

I usually make a version of this dip with cashews but didn’t have any so I subbed-in hemp hearts; which as it turned out, was really delicious.

I drizzled my dip over roasted cauliflower and yams, but it would also make a great veggie dip or dressing for a salad.

Make up a batch and try it for yourself!
