Here’s a little secret few people know about me—I hate swallowing tablets. There must be others like me out there; people who turn into the five-year old version of themselves and want to throw a tantrum the minute they see the size of the tablet they’re supposed to take. I don’t know why I never developed the capacity to be a normal, adult, tablet-taker, but nevertheless, I do everything I can to avoid it. This means that most of the time, I take my daily dose of CBD in my morning smoothie, but after too many morning smoothies in a row, sometimes I need something a little different. For these reasons, and more, I decided to come up with an innovative recipe to get my daily dose of CBD; one that doesn’t involve tablets or tantrums.
CBD green seasoning is a little mix that goes great on just about everything—from popcorn, to salads, to the perfect top off to your morning scrambled eggs—it’s as diverse as it is delicious. It has the same kind of salty, nutty taste and consistency as Middle Eastern dukkah. It’s great to have on-hand at all times as the figurative cherry-on-top of just about anything savoury that comes out of your kitchen. But before we get started, let’s dive into why I use BioCBD+ products above all others.
The Difference Between BioCBD+ and Other CBD Products.
Many CBD hemp oil products on the market today have poor bioavailability (reports show less than 10%). They are not easily absorbed into the body for the simple reason that our body is composed of over 60% water, and oil and water do not mix. BioCBD+ is an all natural, water soluble product that’s more bioavailable and effective than any CBD hemp oil products on the market, so you get more bang for your buck.
Not to mention that a lot of CBD companies are not getting their products third-party tested and are also not providing a certificate of analysis for their ingredients. Lab tests done by independent companies like CBD Oil Review are constantly showing that CBD companies are falsely reporting both the percentage of CBD in their products are also the filler ingredients. In short, not all companies are trustworthy, not all products are bioavailable, which is why I like BioCBD+.
Now we’ve got that out of the way, let’s get into the recipe.
CBD Green Seasoning
What I like most about this recipe is both how fast it is to make and also that you can make a bunch in advance, and it will last you a long time. I keep mine in a container and devour it within a week, but it will last much longer than that. It’s also super healthy. With all the added benefits of nutrient packed superfoods like chia seeds and seaweed, it will keep your immune system strong through flu season.
PREP TIME: 5 MINUTES – COOK TIME: 25 MINUTES
6-8 x BioCBD+ CBD Tablets
8 leaves of Kale, stems removed.
¼ cup sunflower seeds
¼ cup pepitas
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon sesame seeds (I like black)
Kombu or Nori
Heat the oven to 300F / 150C.
Mix the pepitas and sunflower seeds with the Shoyu sauce then place them in a single layer on a lined baking tray along with the Kombu or Nori. Wash and dry the kale then arrange it in a single layer, on a second lined baking tray. Place both in the oven and keep a close eye on it until everything is toasted, usually around 20 minutes.
Once removed, let all the ingredients cool and crisp (crucial: this won’t work otherwise).
Crumble the kombu/nori and kale into a large mortar and pestle along with 1 tablespoon of the sunflower seeds. Pound until finely ground. Add the rest of the ingredients. I like to add a few of the remaining toasted seeds whole, but that’s up to you.
When you’re done, it should resemble the consistency of the Middle Eastern nut and herb mix, dukkah, maybe even a little chunkier.
Makes about 1 cup.
