If you are a fan of marijuana edibles but want something more substantial to eat, we have great news! It is now possible to infuse a vast array of dinnertime favorites with cannabis. In almost every instance, it is merely a case of adding weed to a classic recipe.
In this article, we outline three fantastic, filling meals that contain cannabis. You’ll be shocked at how easy it is to add these recipes to your dinner menu.
1 – Traditional Vegetarian Cannabis Lasagna
- Step 1. Make cannabis oil.
- Step 2. Prepare your Béchamel (white) sauce. Make sure it is smooth and lump-free.
- Step 3. Place the lasagna in the baking dish, and cook it for about an hour at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
It is easy to ruin a classic dish with extra ingredients. However, cannabis oil makes this vegetarian lasagna more delectable and flavorful. It could add an array of essential vitamins and minerals to what is already a hearty meal.
- 2 ounces of finely ground marijuana (trim or buds) or an equivalent amount of cannabis oil
- 30 ounces of olive oil (extra virgin preferred)
- 5 tablespoons of flour
- A quarter gallon of milk
- Salt, pepper, nutmeg, grated garlic, and any other herbs you like
- 2 (16 ounces) boxes of lasagna noodles
- 1 large carrot
- 1 large red pepper
- 4 small tomatoes
- 1 can of olives
- 5 pounds of different cheese (mozzarella, parmesan, Maasdam)
- 5 pounds of Portobello mushrooms
How to Cook
- Pour the olive oil into the saucepan and heat it. Avoid boiling.
- Put the ground cannabis into the oil and stir thoroughly.
- Slowly cook the oil for about 2 hours (frequently stir, so it doesn’t boil).
- Put the oil through a cheesecloth.
- Pour it into a container and close tightly.
- Keep the oil in the cool dark place, preferably the refrigerator.
It’s hard to make a mistake when you are cooking béchamel sauce. Your main goal is to avoid lumps.
- Take a heavy-bottomed saucepan and pour the cannabis oil into it.
- Heat the pan but don’t allow the oil to boil.
- Slowly put the flour into the saucepan and stir vigorously.
- Continue stirring until the flour gets a golden hue.
- Slowly pour in the milk and stir without stopping until the mixture starts boiling.
- Add salt and pepper (half a teaspoon of each) and two teaspoons of nutmeg.
- Keep stirring.
- Boil the sauce for about 5 – 7 minutes while stirring.
The béchamel sauce shouldn’t have any lumps. Keep stirring until the mixture is smooth.
- Cut the Portobello mushrooms into small pieces, put them in a frying pan, and turn on the heat. Add 1 teaspoon of salt.
- Fry the mushrooms until all water evaporates. Stir occasionally.
- Turn off the heat and leave the mushrooms on a hot frying pan, letting them dry out even more.
- While the mushrooms are resting, grate the carrot into large pieces and cut the red pepper into cubes or slices.
- Put the mushrooms on a plate to free up the frying pan.
- Using high heat, fry carrots, red pepper, black pepper, grated garlic, and other herbs in olive oil for a few seconds.
- Add a little water and half a teaspoon of salt. Steam the ingredients for another 5 – 7 minutes without covering the pan.
- Meanwhile, you can slice the tomatoes and olives and grate all the cheeses separately.
- Take a deep baking dish and grease it with olive oil.
- Using a pastry brush or spoon, apply the Béchamel sauce over the whole dish area.
- Cover the bottom with lasagna sheets.
- Cover the sheets with 2/3 of the steamed vegetables.
- Pour béchamel sauce on top.
- Put parmesan cheese uniformly on top of the sauce.
- Put lasagna sheets on top of the cheese.
- Put 2/3 of the mushrooms on top of the sheets.
- Sprinkle the mushrooms with the rest of the parmesan cheese.
- Cover the cheese with more lasagna sheets.
- Pour in the béchamel sauce.
- Cover the sauce with the olives and the rest of the mushrooms.
- Cover the olives with half Maasdam cheese.
- Put the lasagna sheets on top.
- Continue the process until your dish is full, or you have used up all the lasagna sheets.
- Preheat the oven to 375 Fahrenheit and bake the lasagna for about 1 hour.
Making a good lasagna is about as complicated as brewing a good cup of coffee! Once you try it once, you’ll be eager to do so again.
2 – The Marijuana Crockpot
- Step 1. Combine the spices in a bowl and rub the spice mixture all over the brisket.
- Step 2. Place the meat in a crock cooker, and place onions over the meat.
- Step 3. Mix the coffee and vinegar and pour the mixture over the brisket.
- Step 4. Cover the crock cooker and let it simmer on low heat for 9 – 10 hours. Once done, you can cut with a sharp knife.
This cannabis-infused recipe isn’t quick, but it is easy! The tender, succulent, and flavor-packed coffee-braised brisket demonstrates a wide range of benefits of the crockpot. It is low carb and high in flavor.
This coffee-braised brisket will make your taste buds go wild, take your gourmet senses for a spin, and leave you wanting more.
This low-carb crockpot recipe isn’t just incredibly tasty; it’s also simple to make. All you need is an excellent cut of meat, some spices, a crockpot, and time to simmer it.
The recipe is based on a large cut of meat and is enough to feed a small party. On the other hand, you can store it in a refrigerator or freezer. It takes 4 – 10 hours to make, depending on how tender you want the meat.
One of the benefits of the crockpot is that it does the work for you. Once you turn the heat on, you’re free to relax while your meal simmers to perfection.
- 10-pound beef brisket, boneless
- 1 tablespoon of ground coffee & 1/2 cup of brewed coffee
- 1 tablespoon of paprika
- 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
- 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon of ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 2 large onions
- 2+ ounces of dried cannabis or the equivalent amount of cannabis oil
A Few Preliminary Tips
- The essential ingredient is the meat itself. You need to find a high-quality cut of boneless beef brisket to make the dream meal you’re aiming for.
- Brew the coffee strong. This champion among low-carb crockpot recipes separates itself from the crowd by its magnetic coffee aroma. The half-cup of coffee you add needs to pack a strong punch to infuse the brisket with the aroma we’re after.
- Instead of brown sugar, you can use a variety of sugar substitutes available on the market.
How to Cook
Combine the spices in a bowl. Mix brown sugar, the tablespoon of ground coffee, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper.
Remove the undesired fat from the meat. We’re making a low carb meal and don’t need excess calories from fat. Take a knife and carefully trim the fat from the brisket.
Now it’s rubbing time. Take the spice mixture and rub it over the brisket, covering all surfaces.
Place the meat in your crockpot. If needed, cut it in a way it can comfortably fit in your cooker. Cut the onions into slices and place them over the brisket. Mix the brewed coffee and vinegar and pour over the brisket and onions.
Cover your crockpot and let it simmer on low heat for 9 – 10 hours. If you want to spare some time, set it on high-heat, and the simmering time will reduce to 4 – 5 hours.
Once it’s done, take the brisket out, and put it on a cutting board. Use a sharp knife to slice the meat across the grain. Once you remove the onions, use the cooking liquid as a rich sauce to coat the slow-cooked, tender beef when serving.
Cooking low-carb has never been easier. The benefits of the crockpot are visible from the moment you open the cover. The flavors are wonderfully infused, and the brisket is cooked to a tender perfection that melts in your mouth.
3 – Thai Green Cannabis Curry
- Step 1. Make the curry paste.
- Step 2. Add the paste to the curry once the mushrooms and chicken are sautéed.
- Step 3. Cook for approximately 30 minutes.
One cannabis recipe that is taking the internet by storm is cannabis curry. Curry is the western term given to a group of dishes prepared using a mixture of spices common in Asian cuisine.
Thanks to the diffusion of Asian cuisine, which took place during the time of British colonies in Asia, curry recipes have spread all across the globe. Essentially, curry is a paste prepared with different Asian spices, depending on the location. They may include turmeric, cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper, coriander, basil, celery, chili, ginger, and lemongrass.
Each country and region has a curry recipe of its own, so it’s not surprising to see many variations of this blend. Likewise, you will find plenty of differences when looking for a cannabis curry idea. Below, we are going to give you a delicious recipe for a Thai green chicken curry.
- 1 roughly chopped lemongrass stalk
- 4 garlic cloves
- 3 Thai green chilies
- 70 grams of ginger
- 6 lime leaves
- 1 bunch of coriander leaves and stems
- 2 tablespoons fish sauce
- 30 grams of palm sugar
- 5 tablespoons of cannabis-infused coconut oil
Thai Green Curry
- 2 tablespoons cannabis-infused coconut oil
- 2 skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into pieces
- 1 cup of coconut milk
- 1 tablespoon chopped coriander
- 1 tablespoon chopped Thai basil
- 1 cup sliced cremini mushrooms
- 1 chicken bouillon cube
- 1-2 lime wedges
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon medicated green curry paste (see above)
- 1 diced Thai chili pepper (optional)
How to Cook
Combine all the paste ingredients in a food processor until it’s fully blended into a fine paste. For the record, it contains eight servings, so you only need to use a quarter in the recipe. However, you can add more if you want extra-potent curry.
Heat a saucepan or wok over medium heat. Once hot, add one tablespoon of cannabis-infused coconut oil. Add the chicken pieces and some salt and pepper to taste. Stir for approximately 5 minutes until the chicken is almost cooked. Then remove the chicken from the heat.
Add mushrooms to the saucepan, and add more salt and pepper for taste. Sautee for approximately 3 – 4 minutes or until mushrooms are tender. Then remove from the pan.
Add one tablespoon of cannabis-infused coconut oil and curry paste to the saucepan and sautee until fragrant (for about 1 – 2 minutes). Stir constantly. Add the chicken bouillon cube. Once it has dissolved, add the coconut milk. Stir well and lower the heat to simmer for about 5 minutes.
Add the chicken and mushrooms back into the saucepan. Sautee until cooked through. Add coriander and basil; cook for 2 minutes. Garnish with Thai chili and fresh lime.
