Cooking with Cannabis While Staying At Home

Leslie kahn


Now that we are sheltering at home, with time on our hands, I thought this would be the perfect time for those of you who are new to cannabis-infused cooking to try some simple recipes. I have chosen an appetizer, a salad, a soup, an entree and a dessert.

Sweet Potato Soup

INGREDIENTS

· 3 large sweet potatoes peeled and cut into sections

· 2 tbsp cannabis-infused butter

· 3 scallions chopped

· 1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves dried or fried 

· 2 tsp chili powder

· 1 tsp curry powder

· 1/2 tsp cayenne powder

· 1/2 tsp salt

· 2 tbsp half and half

· 2-3 cups chicken stock or vegetable stock

· Fresh parsley for garnish

* If you don’t enjoy the heat, cut out/reduce the spices

INGREDIENTS

1. Place the sweet potatoes in a large soup pot with plenty of water and simmer until very tender; about 20-25 minutes. Drain.
2. While the sweet potatoes are cooking, heat the canna-butter in a medium saucepan. Saute the scallions for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. If you are planning to add the fried parsley, heat a couple of inches of canola oil in a small saucepan. When hot, carefully add the dried parsley to the hot oil, to avoid too much splattering, and fry for a few seconds until the parsley crisps. Place on paper towels to drain.
4. Place the cooked sweet potato in the bowl of your food processor and puree. Gradually add the remaining ingredients, ending with the stock, until completely smooth. 5. Heat the soup before serving. Ladle into serving bowls and top with fresh parsley as a garnish.
