Hempseed buns are traditionally served sweet and come with a delicious cinnamon filling, however they also make a great savoury snack. I set myself the challenge of creating hempseed pesto buns for an aperitif. The result was these delicious, savoury buns, which can be enjoyed as an aperitif or for brunch.

Mix the flour, salt, sugar and yeast in a bowl. Pour in the water, almond milk and oil, knead to form a soft, smooth dough. Cover and leave to rise at room temperature for approx. 1 hr. until doubled in size.

To shape

On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out thinly into a rectangle (approx. 40 x 30 cm). Spread half of the long side with pesto, fold the other half over the top and press down gently. Cut the dough lengthwise into 10 strips. Twist the strips, tie in a knot, press the ends together firmly. Place the buns on a baking tray lined with baking paper, cover and leave to rise for approx. 20 mins. Brush with a little oil, sprinkle with hempseed.
