This is a recipe I accidentally came up with while trying to make a different sauce. It turned out really good so I kept the recipe and I use it for a number of things. I use this for a more amped up grilled cheese, put it on homemade pizza, tacos, pulled bbq jackfruit, a dipping sauce for grilled/baked veggies and on burgers. It pairs well with so many things. I also add it to my potato salad for a more bold flavor.
If you don’t want this spicy, You can omit the spice or limit the amount you use. I often make this without the spice and it turns out just as delicious. You can make this salt free if you prefer no salt.
1 cup hemp seeds
1/4 cup plant-based milk, I often use rice milk but any type will work
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 jalapeno, seeded and minced
1/2 tsp salt, I use pink Himalayan
Juice of lemon juice
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp onion powder
- In a food processor combine all of the ingredients and blend until smooth. This will be slightly thick but you can use more milk to thin it out if you like a more runny sauce. Check for seasoning and add more salt, pepper or onion powder if needed.
- Pour into an airtight container (small mason jar) with lid and store in the fridge up to 2 weeks.
If you do not like jalapeno, you can omit it and add in red pepper flakes, or your choice of hot sauce. Although adding in hot sauce will make the sauce a more pink color but will not alter the flavor that much. Either way is fine and I have made it will all of them and they are just as good and flavorful.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Let me tell you a little bit about me. I am a mom of two, a stepmom of 1, two wild and silly pups, and I have the best husband in the world. I also have a love of cooking and baking. I am always in the kitchen finding new recipes to try, recreating old family recipes, and reminiscing about the old ways. I am vintage at heart and love all things old and cast iron. I love spending time with the family and pups and just going where life takes us.
I created my blog a few years ago with my youtube channel because I thought that If I shared a recipe, then people just might like to see just how the recipe is put together. I share all of my family recipes along with today's recipes. Whether it is old-fashioned recipes, sourdough, einkorn, desserts, sheet pan meals, or even crockpot meals, they are all absolutely delicious.
I spend hours, if not days, creating and dabbling with recipes to make sure they are the best for you and your family. All of my recipes are family tested and family-approved before they are ever posted to my blog or youtube channel.
Every now and again I will share some behind-the-scenes fun and chaos of our creations and family adventures. I hope you all stick around and join us here at The Southern Rustic and see what we cook up in my kitchen. You can find all of my social media information in the Contact/Donate OR the Social Media Accounts tab on my home page. There I have listed my Instagram pages, YouTube channel, Email, and other information so you can easily find everything in one place.
I hope that you all have a wonderful, wonderful day and I will see you soon.
