Hemp Food Basics

Hemp Milk

Hemp Milk is Raw, Vegan, Gluten Free and more nutritious than other milks. It also serves as a base for many other food and skincare recipes.


  1. Soak ingredients in 250ml water for 24 hours. No need to heat.
  2. Blend all ingredients thoroughly using a high powered blender.
  3. Add a further 250ml water.
  4. Add the Cinnamon and Vanilla.
  5. Blend again.
  6. Filter through a cloth. (the residue can be dried and used as high protein flour in other recipes)
  7. Chill for at least one hour.
Keeps for 2-3 days. OPTIONAL INGREDIENTS (do not try all together)
  • 1-2 fresh Figs
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground Cardamom
  • 1 Banana or other fresh fruit
  • 1 tbsp Carob/Caco powder
  • 1/2 cup Carot juice to 1/2 cup Hemp milk
  • Raw Honey or Maple Syrup with Nutmeg

Hemp Pasta

  1. In a mixing bowl, add egg, salt and oil to the flour.
  2. Knead to make a dough that doesn't stick to your hands (add more flour or water as necessary).
  3. Leave to sit for 30 minutes.
  4. Cut a palm size piece of dough, roll out and dust with flour.
  5. Knead by hand for at least five more minutes. Alternatively, run the dough through at the thickest setting of your pasta machine. Fold and dust the dough and run through again before repeating using medium setting.
  6. If working by hand roll the smooth elastic dough out to 50cm by 40cm, 2mm thick on a floured surface. With the machine use thinnest setting to repeat and pull the pasta away from the end, this time without folding.
  7. You now have the basic pasta sheet which can be cut into various shapes, cooked and served with a tomato, fresh basil pesto, garlic, oregano and olive oil sauce (see sauce section) or fungi royale. To make tagliatelle, cut into 5mm strips.

Recipes by Jessie Kay

Notes from the Chef - please enjoy these recipes that I developed for Hemp Foods Australia. All of them are tasty, quick and delicious ways to add wholesome hemp foods to your daily meals. My focus as a chef is organic vegan whole foods and I encourage you to try these recipes sourcing the

best ingredients available to you locally. I am an advocate for Hemp Foods Australia. Their products are top quality and Australian certified organic. They are very careful in the handling of their products, including their cold press oil extraction method. I regard their foods as therapeutic. As a vegan I can rely on hemp foods to deliver high quality complete protein, vitamins, minerals

and the omegas my body needs. But of course as a chef its also about the taste and versatility of this ingredient that I love. The light nutty flavour of the hemp seed transitions effortlessly from sweet to savoury. The opportunities to

create wholesome hemp dishes are endless. Hemp seeds can be substituted for dairy by making hemp milk, hemp cheeses, creamy dressings, cake icing, mayonnaise, creamy pasta sauces etc. For those of you who are already on a plant based diet hemp seeds offer an exciting new way to make dairy substitutes instead of the heavy reliance on cashews for this application. The seeds are a great way to garnish dishes, salads, smoothie bowls, bliss balls etc. The oil can be used in the same way you would use a good quality cold pressed olive oil - as a drizzle, in salad dressings and in many raw food recipes. The protein powder can be added to baked recipes, sauces, smoothies etc. for an extra protein punch as demonstrated in the chocolate cake recipe below.

Have fun exploring the new culinary opportunities hemp foods can provide in your daily diet.

Soak lasagne sheets in boiling water in a baking tray to soften, sheets not touching each other.

Cook at 180 degrees for approximately 50 mins till golden on top. Zucchini can substituted with other vegetables. I just like the minimal prep and cook time with thinly sliced zucchini. Other vegetables such as pumpkin you may want to roast a little first before layering in lasagne.

Hemp Body Scrub

Hemp Protein is easily digestible with 65% globulin edestin and 35% albumin protein, more than any other plant. These substances aid digestion and assimilation, and are in a form similar to that found in blood plasma. Great for dry hair and skin, as it nourishes you. Hemp Protein powder is used in a skincare product (body scrub) as exfoliant. INGREDIENTS METHOD
  1. Add essential oil to the Hemp Protein Powder in a glass or ceramic bowl, stir thoroughly.
  2. Gradually add the hemp seed oil, stirring continuously.
  3. Stop when the scrub reaches the consistency of moist sand.

Use Organic Coarse Hemp Powder for a more coarse exfoliant.
