7 Creative Ways to Use Hemp Seed Oil in Food

We've all heard about the benefits of incorporating coconut oil and olive oil into our diets, but it's time to turn our attention to hemp seed oil—nature's 'miracle' oil.

Extracted through cold pressing raw and unrefined hemp seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant, hemp seed oil boasts numerous benefits without causing the 'high' associated with cannabis.

Rich in omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, proteins like edestin and albumin, antioxidants, essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals, hemp seed oil is rightfully hailed as a 'superfood'. It supports overall health and can enhance the taste, texture, and nutritional value of meals, whether applied topically or consumed orally.

Here are some creative ways to incorporate hemp seed oil into your diet:

  1. Salad Dressings: With its nutty and earthy flavor, hemp seed oil adds depth to salads. Drizzle it over your favourite greens or concoct a homemade dressing with herbs like parsley, oregano, and thyme, along with lemon juice and balsamic vinegar.

  2. Sauces: Blend hemp seed oil with basil, ground mustard, garlic, and salt to create flavourful sauces for pasta, sandwiches, or tacos.

  3. Smoothies: Boost the nutritional content of your smoothies by adding a teaspoon or two of hemp seed oil along with protein shots and cocoa powders.

  4. Baked Goods: Substitute hemp seed oil for traditional oils in baking recipes like bread, biscuits, and slices, adding a nutty flavour and extra nutrition.

  5. Stir Fry: Use hemp seed oil as both a cooking oil and dressing in stir-fry dishes. Combine it with chili flakes and soy sauce for a delicious fusion meal.

  6. Homemade Dips: Elevate homemade dips like pesto, salsa, or hummus by incorporating hemp seed oil for a distinct nutty flavour.

  7. Soups: Drizzle hemp seed oil over soups or use it to cook vegetables for a creamy vegetable soup, adding richness and flavoir.
