  • 1/4 cup hemp hearts
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup basil
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 hard boiled egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil or more to your desired texture
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lb cooked whole wheat pasta for serving
  • Cherry tomatoes quartered for serving
  • Basil chiffonade


  • To a food processor, puree the hemp hearts, walnuts, basil, and garlic until the walnuts are finely ground. Then add the avocado, lemon, eggs and pulse until combined, then add in the olive oil just until it is thin enough for a sauce. Season with a tiny bit of salt and pepper, if desired (can omit for young babies).
  • Toss with cooked pasta and serve as is or with cherry tomatoes, and basil on top.
