There's a section in the latest issue of VegNews (March/April) called "High on Hemp" with hemp seed recipes from Dreena Burton. Hemp seeds are high in Omega-3's and amino acids. I bought a back of shelled hemp seeds in Nashville this past weekend to try out a few of Burton's dishes.
Tonight, I made Spicoli Burgers (named, of course, for Sean Penn's stoner surfer dude character in Fast Times at Ridgemont High):
Served on a wheat bun with Veganaise, spring greens, and pickled red peppers, it was delish! The patty consists of brown rice, hemp seeds, diced red pepper, onion, garlic, herbs, and spices. I lightly pan-fried the patty in coconut oil. I had to cut the recipe in half though because it makes 8 burgers. My freezer's pretty packed, but I'll eat the other 3 patties throughout the week for leftovers.
On the side, I had a salad with tempeh bacon:
I made the bacon for a "cheesy" grits recipe I'm testing for the cookbook (pics to come tomorrow), but I had plenty left over. It was great crumbled over salad in place of bacon bits, which are full of trans fats (unless they come from the health food store, but I keep forgetting to pick up bacon bits at Wild Oats...). BTW, you can't see it here, but I dressed the salad with Amy's Goddess Dressing (the best stuff ever!).
