Vegan, healthy and creamy dressings are hard to come by but this recipe with zucchini/courgette, hemp and basil does the trick.  Besides being creamy, it also offers a nice kick — the recipe includes the cayenne pepper. The fruit of the plant is used to make medicine. Capsicum is used for various problems with digestion and to prevent heart disease.
