I’ve been in the mood for hippy food lately, so I whipped up a batch of hemp seed tabouleh.
I was thinking about hippies because I am watching this fantastic Netflix documentary called Wild Wild Country. (trailer below)
It’s about this cult that took over a tiny Oregon town in the early 80’s.
And I don’t know about you, but I find cults endlessly fascinating. What could make someone give up everything, put on orange robes and follow some guy to the middle of nowhere? But thousands of people did just that. The story takes a bunch of twists and turns and ends up with the cult poisoning 700 people in this little town. It is truly bananas. I cannot recommend it enough.
But about that hippy food that I mentioned earlier.
This recipe for hemp seed tabouleh has something for everyone. It’s Low Carb, Keto, Vegan, Vegetarian, THM-S, Whole30, Grain Free and Gluten Free. And it’s very tasty to boot. I replaced high carb bulgar wheat with low carb hulled hemp seeds and you’d be hard pressed to tell the difference. What really comes through are the flavors of lemon, fresh parsley, scallions and mint leaves. It’s absolutely delicious.
But now I must get back to my hippy show. Namaste!
