Hemp Hearts

Hemp Hearts

This bag of Hemp Hearts from Manitoba Harvest was included in my Best of Box from KLUTCH Club.

Now, it’s featured on this week’s grocery list.

I had seen a lot of use of chia seeds on health blogs recently, but I was unfamiliar with the taste or texture hemp seeds and what they could be used in/what health benefits they possessed. I was pretty excited to try them!

Hemp hearts are the inner kernel of the hemp seed (sans the hard outer shell). They have add an interesting texture and a distinctly nutty flavor to whatever they are added to.

The hearts are rich in omegas, protein & fiber. Nuts.com even refers to hemp hears as “one of the world’s most nutritious seeds.” The bag suggests to “Sprinkle hemp hearts on salads, or add to cereal, yogurt, in baking or even into smoothies!” I loved mixing it into my Greek yogurt for breakfast.

Coffee Cup Quiche

I recently stumbled on a blog post about about coffee cup cooking and fell in love with the concept. Not only is the meal made in minutes, but it’s also automatically set up for adorable presentation. This morning I created my own gluten free coffee cup quiche, and can promise I will be making it again, and again. Hope you enjoy!

Prep time: 

3 minutes

Ingredients:

(I can almost guarantee you have all these items laying around!)

  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons milk (may substitute soy or almond)
  • Salt
  • Ground black pepper
  • 1/8 of a Shar Gluten-free baguette (you can also substitute 1/4 a bagel or a similar amount of bread)
  • 2 teaspoons cream cheese
  • 1 slice of ham
  • Cheddar Cheese

How to Make a Coffee Cup Quiche:

1. Beat the egg and milk together with a fork in a coffee cup, adding salt and pepper to taste.

2. Tear bread into dime-size pieces; stir in. Add cream cheese; stir in. Tear ham into small pieces; add to mixture.

2. Microwave on high about 1 minute 10 seconds. Sprinkle cheese on top; microwave for an additional 30  seconds or until done.
