Mind-Blowing Cheezy Hemp Nacho Sauce
This is a guest post by Kristen Suzanne, the voice behind the blog, Kristen’s Raw, and author of numerous raw food cookbooks. Kristen was a competitive natural bodybuilder in her early 20’s, followed by a long stint as a raw vegan chef. These days her diet is far less restrictive, but she still focuses on whole foods and enjoys recipes like hemp nacho sauce. I’ve updated this post and moved it to our recipe section so that you can find it more easily!
This Cheezy Hemp Nacho Sauce is so delicious and non-dairy! It’s perfect anytime, including at the next party you host or attend. Every time I make it, my husband licks the bowl. My step-dad wants to eat it like a soup because he loves it so much!

Hemp Cheese & Spinach Quesadillas
Vegan Hemp Cheese & Spinach Quesadillas!
This is quickly becoming one of the most frequently made recipes in my house. I’m always looking for ways to get more greens into Lily’s diet. These vegan hemp cheese & spinach quesadillas are my new go-to!
You may be wondering, why use hemp seeds?
Why I love hemp seeds:
Hemp is an extremely sustainable crop! It grows quickly, making it one of the easiest crops to harvest.
The seeds are full of protein and healthy fats! Since plant-based diets don’t include fish, it’s essential to consume foods that are high in Omega 3’s like hemp seeds.
Hemp seeds are very soft so there’s no need to pre-soak or boil them before making this cheese. Plus one for saving time!
If you’re out of hemp seeds or want a more wallet-friendly alternative, feel free to swap the hemp for pre-soaked cashews or sunflower seeds.
Either way, you’re going to love these vegan quesadillas! They are:
PACKED with greens at nearly 1 cup per quesadilla
Full of protein, fiber, and Omega 3’s
Quick to make- just 10-15 minutes!
SO delicious and satisfying
Cheezy, flavorful & nourishing!
Toddler-approved! Lily snatched a quesadilla right off the plate when I was taking pictures.
