Broccoli and Hemp Hearts with Chimichurri

Hemp hearts are the soft inner part of hemp seeds after removing the outer shell. They are cream and green-coloured and come from the Cannabis sativa L. plant (contains no THC, the psychoactive part of cannabis). These little seeds are packed with protein, containing 9.5 g per 30 g, and have a glycaemic load of 0 in 3 tablespoons. This is a great addition to your pantry and should definitely be a staple! This recipe showcases how easy it is to incorporate hempseeds into a dish.

Pestle and mortar / stick blender

Cutting board


Medium pot

Serving dish



2 cloves fresh garlic

5 stems fresh parsley

5 sprigs fresh thyme

1 cup rocket

5 stems chives

4 tbsp Liviana™ CBD-Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 tbsp lemon juice

Salt and pepper


1 medium head broccoli

5 tbsp hemphearts


  1. Add all of the ingredients for the chimichurri into a pestal and morter. Crush until combined, but still chunky. Taste for seasoning.

  2. Cut the broccoli up into small florets (approximately 2.5 x 2.5 cm). Cook in water for 3 minutes, then shock by putting the broccoli florets immediately into ice cold water. This will stop the cooking process and ensure nutrient-dense and vibrantly green veggies.

  3. Place the broccoli into a serving dish. Sprinkle generously with hemphearts and the chimichurri.
