This twist on hummus is a favorite at Datz in Tampa, Florida. Their executive chef, James Williams, says: “You can say this dish is perfect for Meatless Monday because it isn’t just meatless but it takes it one step farther using the hemp hearts — it’s unique and a healthier option for the veg-head looking looking for more interesting items to eat. We joke, but it’s all ‘cool beans, man.'”
