Siemieniotka is a Silesian soup made of hemp seed, often eaten at the traditional Christmas Eve meal, Wigilia.[1]

The hemp seeds are cooked, separated from the shells, ground into paste and mixed with milk and honey (an alternative recipe in Polish). Siemieniotka is part of Poland's ancient, pre-Christian, Aryan-Saka-Sarmatian traditions.

The name of the dish comes from its main component: seeds (siemie).
