Prep Time 5 minutes
Servings 3 cups


  • 1 cup raw hemp seeds rinsed
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup filtered water
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 inch jalapeno pepper chopped, optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt


  • 2 Tablespoons green onion rough chop
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh cilantro rough chop
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh dill rough chop


  1. Carefully rinse hemp seeds under cool water in a fine mesh strainer to remove any dust or dirt. add rinsed seeds to a blender with the remaining ingredients, except for the fresh herbs, as over-blending them will turn the whole dip green.

  2. Start blending on low speed and gradually increase to high speed, scraping down the sides as necessary. Blend until smooth and creamy, adding a little water if the mixture is too thick and isn't blending well.

  3. Now add the dill and green onions. Return the speed back down to low and blend again for another 2 - 3 seconds. Taste for seasoning and add more sea salt if necessary.

  4. Enjoy with sliced vegetables, gluten free crackers or as a salad dressing!

  5. Store leftover dip in an airtight container in the fridge for 7 - 10 days.
