I've heard of hemp hearts, seen them at WF, online etc, but I don't think I've ever had them. Funny thing is that the last few weeks I've come across a few recipes that had this as an ingredient, and noticed it on a menu at a vegetarian place.
I know people sprinkle them on yogurt, salads etc.
I guess it has a slightly nutty taste similar to sunflower seeds,it the shelled part of the hemp seed (had to google to learn its the seeds of the hemp plant), source of protein and .......
So does anyone use them? And if so, how? Just wondering. I find it so interesting to see ingredients that most have never heard of years ago, get popular etc. (ie chia seeds, zillion items with some form of coconut and such).
No, not yet. But I'm still catching up. Within the last year, I've caught up with the arugula craze (thanks to it being on everything served at The Thirsty Lion -- we've fallen in love with it) and lately, black truffles (or the oil sold at World Market--for several bucks cheaper than at Amazon--same mfg, same amount, same box and bottle).
So HEMP HEARTS--I've never heard of them...well, hemp yes, but hearts? I wonder what they taste like?!!?! Let's all GET SOME AND TRY IT TOGETHER, WHAT SAY?? Fun!! Life is a foodie adventure!

I think they are supposed to taste kind of like sunflower seeds and have a nutty taste --- I think many just use like other similar nuts or seeds and sprinkle on salads, yogurts. I was just wondering if anyone bought them. I would have to use up the big ol' bag of sunflower seeds I have before even thinking about trying them.
It is so funny how certain foods become popular. Years ago you probably couldn't find one brand of hummus in the stores, now there is a wall full. I know what you mean about trying all the new popular food items. I do love trying new things.
