Hemp and Sprout Green Salad [Vegan]

Ah ha! My first excuse to use my pepper mill :) This is the high point to my recent depressing discovery that I may have a mild almond allergy (if you have been reading this for any amount of time then you know how much I adore almonds... sigh). Looks like some more allergy testing is in store..ergh. Anyways, I fooled myself into thinking I had slivered almonds on my salad by using dehydrated chopped garlic instead; it really has a nice crunch, which is part of what I wanted.

2 c. organic lettuce (I used red leaf)
1/2 pint or a few large handfuls sprouts
2 T. organic hemp protein powder
1 T. dehydrated chopped garlic (optional)

fresh pepper
dried basil

1 T. balsamic vinegar
2 T. extra virgin olive oil

Toss lettuce and sprouts in a large bowl. Sprinkle over hemp powder and then top with garlic and seasonings. Mix (I just pour it on, but you can shake it together) olive oil and vinegar and pour over the salad. I had this with my hemp-inspired lunch of Seaweed and Kale Soup.

Serves: 1-2


  1. I know! Stupid "forbidden" things just make you want it more. What's worse is that almond butter was recently on sale and I bought about 6 jars (lbs)! Arrgh! Lol

  2. That's awesome. I have some hemp protein powder in the cupboard. Haven't used it for anything except healthy protein shakes. I'm very eager to try out this recipe. Thanks for sharing!
