Quick Hemp Cashew Dip/Dressing

Though we got introduced to hemp about a year ago, it is only recently that we started enjoying it, so much that we are trying to use it as much as possible. And why not, it is so good for you, being one of the best sources for plant based protein, perfect omega 6 to omega 3 ratio and a good source of essential fatty acids, magnesium and much more..This  recipe is flexible to be used as a dip or as a salad dressing, a perfect replacement for a blue cheese dip. It can also be made completely raw and vegan by replacing the yogurt with the same amount of coconut milk, add a tablespoon of coconut kefir for your doze of pro-biotic.


  • Organic raw hemp hearts - 1/4 cup
  • Organic raw cashews - 1/4 cup (recommended soaking for a few hours)
  • Organic homemade yogurt - 1/4 cup
  • Red pearl onions - 2-3 
  • Garlic cloves - 1-2
  • Organic raw apple cider vinegar - 1 Tbs
  • Black pepper corns - a few
  • Sea salt - as per taste

  • You may want to slice the onion and garlic and soak in apple cider vinegar for 30 minutes or so. I prefer it this way to reduce the stink from raw onion and garlic. 
  • Blend everything to a silky smooth dip.
  • Serve with fresh veggies, home made pita or as a salad dressing. 
  • This serves 2. 
  • Enjoy !!

  •     Here is a salad with cooked rye berries along with steamed long beans & wilted purple kale which will go very well with this dressing

  1. This sounds really yummy. I'm a huge fan of hemp hearts too. Do you think it would still be creamy without the yogurt? Maybe add extra cashews?

  2. I have tried replacing the yogurt with coconut milk and get similar consistency.
