Obama's hand picked man is going to prison for Contempt. Where is Timothy Geithner?
Hemp Pesto (raw, vegan, gluten and soy free)
Yields approx 1 1/3 cup
1 cup shelled hemp seeds
2 tightly packed cups of fresh basil
1/2 tsp salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 clove garlic, minced (2 cloves if you’re a garlic fan)
2/3 cup water
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1) Place hemp seeds in a food processor fitted with the S blade. Grind till they’re powdery.
2) Add basil and pulse to combine well.
3) Add salt, pepper, lemon, garlic, and pulse again.
4) With the motor running, add water in a thin stream, as if you were making a nut pate. Stop once in a while to scrape the bowl. Keep adding water until the pesto is still quite thick, but not pasty.
5) Keep motor running, and finish the pesto by drizzling in the 2 tbsp EVOO. This isn’t necessary, but it’ll give the pesto a more traditional mouthfeel and flavor!
Two nights ago, I served this wonderful pesto over a bowl of zucchini pasta with sundried tomatoes, edamame, and cherry tomatoes from the Georgetown farmer’s market:
Absolutely delicious, high raw dinner!
This all goes to show that a small modification in a traditional recipe can multiply its nutrition in really significant ways. Using pine nuts in pesto is just fine, but hemp seeds truly have more to offer in terms of essential nutrients and protein. Putting them in pesto is an easy and efficient way to offer yourself a few more benefits from your meal, without sacrificing taste or turning something you like into an unpleasant form of “health food.” Enjoy!!

There we go - all the hot button words, all of the blaring partisanship. He "indirectly MURDERED". Sure, and Bush indirectly murdered thousands of our troops - where is the outrage there? Shit happens, again, is this about holder's actions? the failure of BATF to monitor its actions? or is it about the supposed cover up? Or is it simply BOHS? Blind Obama hatred syndrome?
