These mini cheese balls are made with goat cheese, hemp seeds and pistachios for plenty of protein. If you prefer to up the savory factor, use sun-dried tomato bits in place of figs. For added texture, each ball is coated in black sesame seeds. Not only do they provide distinctive color and crunch, sesame seeds contain sesamin, which can help protect the liver.



1. Finely dice the figs; set aside.
2. Add the goat cheese, hemp seeds, pepper, and salt to a food processor. Cover and puree until creamy, about 15 seconds. Add the pistachios and figs and pulse a few times until evenly combined.
3. Transfer the mixture to a bowl. With clean hands, firmly form mixture into 12 balls, about 1 1/2 tablespoons each.
4. Roll each ball into the sesame seeds to coat.
5. Place in a sealed container. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
