This delicious, creamy roasted pepper sauce is so easy to make and allows you to sneak in some super-nutritious hemp seeds! Hemp seeds have an excellent balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. They are considered the “perfect protein” because not only do they have all 20 amino acids, but they also have each of the 9 essential amino acids that our bodies can’t produce. They are also high in fiber and contain various other vitamins and minerals.
