A Thempting Offer…
As the weather is getting warmer and the days are getting longer, we can’t stop thinking that picnic season is well and truly upon us. This thought is confirmed with the re-launch of three seasonal Hemp Hummuses thanks to our friends at Themptation.
Their Beetroot & Pomegranate, Spiced Carrot & Turmeric and Spinach, Coriander & Lime varieties are now available on our website. To celebrate the re-introduction of these yummy dips, we’re offering 30% off each of the hummuses until the end of June. The perfect excuse to add a few of these picnic essentials and barbecue must-haves to your next organic food delivery.
Themptation was founded by university graduate Tom who was looking to bring hemp to the forefront of British food culture and promote the benefits of hemp. All of their products are vegan, nut-free and certified organic by the Soil Association, with all their hemp seeds sourced organically in the UK. Not only this, but Themptation assure all the energy used to produce their products is provided by solar panels, all their waste is composted and their packaging is fully recyclable or compostable. This, combined with the fact that they are based just across the border from us near Padstow in Cornwall, makes Themptation a brand that we love working with.
Their Hemp Hummus is a stand-out in their range of organic produce. A healthy, light and naturally sweet snack with slightly earthy flavourings, the hummus is made with an authentic family recipe that spans back several generations. The traditionally Middle Eastern chickpea dips have raw, protein rich hemp seeds ground in with nutty cold pressed hemp seed oil to accompany. This makes these hummuses a great source of protein, omega 3, 6 and 9 and fibre – a definite summer must-have for all picnics.
National Picnic Week
There’s no better time to get your hands on this organic hummus, as National Picnic Week is right around the corner. This annual event has been running for over 10 years, celebrating everything about the British tradition of picnicking. This year, the celebration runs from Saturday 19th June to Sunday 27th June.
Hummus is a great picnic food as it works in sandwiches and wraps and is just as good as a family friendly dip for crackers, breadsticks or your choice of chopped organic vegetables. If you need some inspiration, we’ve collected a few of our favourite hummus recipes for you to try during your next al fresco dining.
Hummus pizza is an inventive way to enjoy pizzas with a healthier, less-guilty twist. For the base of this pizza, we recommend using Amaizin Tortilla Wraps baked in the oven (set to 200 degrees) with a sprinkling of Olive Oil for around 3-5 minutes until crisp. Once you’ve removed the wraps from the oven, spread your choice of Hemp Hummus over them. Pick some of your favourite organic vegetables (we’re talking Cherry Tomatoes, Red Onion and Olives) and combine them with some Lemon Juice, Olive Oil, salt and pepper and layer atop of your hummus. Finally, finish off the dish by crumbling some Medita Cheese and for something a little extra, you could even add some cooked organic meat.
Forget the Burger Sauce…
Say goodbye to the burger sauce for your summer barbecues, as organic hummus is a delicious addition to organic meat and meat-free burgers. Pair our award-winning Beef Steak Burgers with organic Tomatoes and our new Little Gem Lettuce and complete with a dollop of Hemp Hummus. If you prefer plant-based, choose from our selection of Dragonfly or Biona burgers as your hummus pairing instead.
If you’re heading for a picnic instead, try cooking up Biona’s Falafel Balls, chopping them in half and combining with a handful of organic vegetables, and of course one of Themptation’s hummuses, and popping into a wrap for an easy, on the go hummus wrap.
Switch Up the Marinate
Although it may be relatively unknown, hummus is actually great for marinating both organic chicken and wild fish. Simply layer your pick of Hemp Hummus over the chicken or fish and let marinate for around an hour, then continue to cook as normal. The result is a delicious piece of meat presenting the yummy flavours of the hummus. A delightful change for a mid-week meal.
Whether you’re a traditional dunker or like to experiment with your hummus, now’s the perfect time to get your hands on Themptation’s Hemp Hummus, as it’s 30% off until the end of June 2021. Add some organic hummus to your next grocery delivery and enjoy Picnic week in the very best way.
