Savory Hemp Seed Pesto Truffles #FreshTastyValentines #sponsor #giveaway


I love making little savory truffles. You can't go wrong with cheese, right?! With some help from #FreshTastyValentines event sponsors - Bob's Red Mill and Gourmet Garden - these were super easy to make. Normally I make pesto in the blender, but because the Gourmet Garden pastes are ready-to-go, I just squeezed the pastes into a bowl and stirred. So. Easy.


Ingredients
Hemp Seed Pesto
  • 3 T basil paste (I used basil paste from Gourmet Garden)
  • 1 T lightly dried basil (I used lightly dried basil from Gourmet Garden)
  • 1 T garlic paste (I used garlic paste from Gourmet Garden)
  • 1/4 C hemp seed hearts (I used Bob's Red Mill)
  • 1/4 C grated parmesan
  • juice from 1 organic lemon (I used Meyer lemon because we have a tree in our backyard)
  • olive oil, as needed
Savory Truffles
  • 4 ounces chevre
  • 1 T hemp seed pesto
  • 1 to 2 T lightly dried basil (I used lightly dried basil from Gourmet Garden)
  • 1 to 2 T  hemp seed hearts (I used Bob's Red Mill)


Procedure
Hemp Seed Pesto
Place all of the ingredients - except the olive oil - in a bowl and stir to combine. Add olive oil until it's the texture you want.

Savory Truffles
Place chevre and pesto in a bowl and stir to combine.


Spoon the lightly dried basil and hemp seed hearts onto two different plates for rolling.


Scoop 1 teaspoon of the cheese mixture and roll into a ball. Roll to coat in either the basil or the hemp seed hearts. You can also leave it naked, too. I alternated. Once finished, chill until ready to serve.

  9. What a great way to use the hemp seeds. And I think savory truffles are better than their sweet cousins. :)

  10. A new natural alternative for insomnia is discovered to be extremely effective – Hemp CBD oil. Cannabinoids present in Hemp oil increased alpha brain waves, which boost alertness, and suppressed delta waves, which are needed for deep sleep.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
