LOVELY LEMONY HEMP SEED TABOULI

 Hemp seeds:  These little seeds give you the complete nutritional power of hemp with their blend of omega-3 and omega-6 fats, high fiber content, and quality amino acid profile. Hemp seeds are also high in magnesium, a mineral that helps with relaxation, blood sugar control, blood pressure, and potentially osteoporosis, and that is generally low in women. Three tablespoons of hulled hemp seeds gives you 10 grams (g) of protein, 14g fat (mostly coming from omega-3 and omega-6 fats), and 2g fiber.

A great summer dish, quick to make and refreshing on the palate!

Vegan, grain-free, gluten-free tabouli.

Ingredients:  1 cup Continental parsley, finely chopped
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
3 medium ripe tomatoes, chopped
1 cup hemp seeds
2 Tablespoons olive oil
juice of 1 lemon
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all the ingredients in your bowl of choice.  Will keep, refrigerated, for up to 2 days.
