We’ve written before about using hemp oil for anxiety, and how millions of people are using hemp oil for arthritis pain. Hemp oil infused coconut and olive oils are also great for cooking, using as a salad dressing, or to dip bread in!
Benefits of Cooking with Hemp Oil
Not only does hemp oil contain all the essential fatty acids and contain Omega-3 and Omega 6 in the perfect “golden ratio,” it also has the lowest concentration of saturated fats and the highest content of polyunsaturated fats among all table oils.
It has protein, insoluble fiber, beta-carotene, phosphorous, potassium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron, zinc, and vitamins E, C, B1, B3, and B6.
You can make a huge impact on your diet and health by simply replacing unhealthy vegetable oils with infused coconut and olive oil. It’s also more flavorful than other table oils.
Because hemp oil has a relatively low smoke point, it’s not ideal for stir frying or other high temperature applications. BUT when it’s infused with another oil, like olive oil or coconut oil, the smoke point becomes much, much higher.
More good news? You can use hemp oil for skin care by ingesting it, not just by applying it topically. The hemp oil we use is 100% grown right here in the United States as part of the University of Kentucky hemp pilot program, you know you are getting real, full-spectrum hemp oil of the highest quality.
Cooking with Hemp Oil the Easy Way
Not only do you get a dietary staple that’s naturally full of fatty acids and antioxidants, you get the added benefits of our full spectrum hemp oil, which range from improved sleep to better digestion and pain management.*
Savory Oven-Roasted Asparagus
One of my favorite uses of the olive oil is for oven-roasted asparagus, a quick and healthy side that goes great with fish and lamb. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Wash asparagus and place in a mixing bowl. Drizzle olive oil on top, add salt and pepper and toss to ensure the asparagus is covered in oil. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and garlic salt.
Place on a baking pan and bake in the oven until tender, about 12 to 15 minutes depending on thickness. Spritz with lemon juice just before serving. Yum!
Flaky Coconut Biscuits
Pressed from the fruit of coconut palm trees, coconut oil works well as a substitute for butter. Unlike butter it is rich in replenishing MCT oils and has a higher smoke point, making it a versatile cooking oil. Coconut biscuits are one of my favorite ways to use hemp infused coconut oil.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix together 2 cup flour, 1 tablespoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon sugar, and ½ teaspoon fine sea salt in a large bowl. Add in ½ cup hemp infused coconut oil and mix until the consistency is that of cookie crumbs. Stir in ¾ cup coconut milk and knead into a dough.
Flatten dough on a lightly floured surface and cut into rectangles about ½-inch thick. Arrange on a baking sheet about 1 ½ inches apart and bake until golden brown and flaky, about 16 minutes. Cool slightly before devouring.
Want an even easier way to enjoy? Try 1 teaspoon daily in coffee (bulletproof coffee), tea, soup, oatmeal, salad dressing or a smoothie!
