I whipped up a super easy and delicious dressing, King Garlic Hemp Dressing. I use the word “King” before “Garlic” because in my mind, garlic is indeed the king of spices (Ginger is the queen).
Yield: 1 1/2 cups
- 1 cup hemp oil
- 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
- 3 large cloves garlic
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
- 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan crystal salt
1) Blend it all thoroughly (I let my high speed Blendtec run 30-45ish seconds).
Stored in an airtight container in your refrigerator, King Garlic Hemp Dressing will stay fresh for up to five days.
Garlic is loaded with antioxidants, and it’s one of the world’s oldest medicinal foods. Back in the old, old days, garlic was given to soldiers to keep them healthy and fight infection, as well as to Egyptian slaves building the pyramids to give them stamina. It’s also been said that it helps ward off vampires… but, ehem… we, Twilight fans, know that notion is so silly.
