What Are Hemp Hearts?

Hemp hearts are delicious nutty flavoured seeds that are packed with nutrients and flavour!

They are the same as hemp seeds just without a shell.

They are rich in protein that contains all of the essential amino acids, fats, fibre and contain no CBD so there is no chance that you will get high. If you want to know more about these amazing seeds you can check out this article by WebMD!

Harvest Bowl Instructions

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Place the pumpkin chunks on a roasting tray, coat in a drizzle of oil, ½ the maple syrup and season. Roast in the hot oven for 30-35 minutes until cooked through and crisping up, shifting halfway.

While the pumpkin is in the oven, Prepare the cannellini beans by coating them in oil and some seasoning. Spread them out in a single layer on a roasting tray. When the pumpkin reaches the halfway mark, pop the cannellini beans into the oven and roast them for the remaining time until they start to crisp.

Mix the vinegar with 20ml of boiling water and the remaining maple syrup to make your sweet pickling liquid. Add in the cucumber half-moons and thin radish rounds and toss until fully coated. Set aside to pickle.

Place the hemp hearts in a pan over medium heat. Toast for 1-2 minutes until lightly browned, shifting occasionally. Remove from the pan on completion and set aside in a shallow dish to cool.
Halve and peel the avocados. Gently push the cut side of the avocado halves into the hemp hearts. Season to taste.

Mix together the vegan mayonnaise, cashew nut yoghurt and ¾ of the chives in a small bowl to make your own harvest bowl dressing!

To serve, make a bed of roasted butternut and crispy cannellini beans. Top with the pickled salad and seeded avocados. Drizzle over the chivy vegan ranch dressing and sprinkle over the remaining chopped chives and any remaining toasted hemp hearts.

Substitutions

If you don’t like some of the ingredients, you can easily change them around to what you have close at hand and love!

  • Pumpkin substitutions could be sweet potato or butternut squash.
  • Substitute cannellini beans with navy beans or butter beans.
  • If you don’t have hemp hearts, try quinoa flakes, chopped pumpkin seeds or flaxseeds.
  • Replace baby spinach with any green leaves.

Storage

Store any leftover salad dressing, roasted pumpkin and beans in an airtight container for up to 4 days. The rest of the harvest bowl ingredients are best eaten fresh.

Top Tip

If you’re short on time, cut your pumpkin cubes even smaller so they cook faster. Just be sure to keep an eye on them to make sure that they don’t burn!

When coating the avocado in the hemp hearts, do it in one dip (Don’t swirl the avocado unless you feel like some hand-made Guacamole)

Keep a close eye on the hemp hearts while you toast them – they can burn easily.
