Hey there! Looking to whip up some quick and easy weed edibles? I've got you covered! Whether you're a seasoned cannabis chef or a beginner in the kitchen, these simple recipes will have you enjoying delicious marijuana-infused dishes in no time.
1. Cannabutter: This is a staple in many cannabis recipes. Start by melting 1 cup of butter in a saucepan on low heat. Once melted, add 1 cup of ground cannabis and simmer for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally. Strain the mixture through a cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer, and voila! You've got yourself some potent cannabutter. Use it in any recipe that calls for regular butter.
2. Classic Pot Brownies: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). In a mixing bowl, combine 1 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of flour, 1/3 cup of cocoa powder, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder. In a separate bowl, mix together 1/2 cup of melted cannabutter, 2 eggs, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Gradually add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients, stirring until well combined. Pour the batter into a greased baking dish and bake for 20-25 minutes. Let them cool before cutting into squares.
3. Infused Guacamole: Mash 2 ripe avocados in a bowl. Add 1 diced tomato, 1/4 cup of diced red onion, 1 minced garlic clove, the juice of 1 lime, and a pinch of salt and pepper. For the cannabis infusion, mix 1 tablespoon of finely ground cannabis with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Stir the cannabis-infused oil into the guacamole until well combined. Serve with tortilla chips or use as a topping for tacos and burgers.
4. Cannabis-Infused Olive Oil: In a saucepan, heat 1 cup of olive oil on low heat. Add 1/4 cup of ground cannabis and simmer for 1-2 hours, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let it cool. Strain the oil through a cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer. Use this infused olive oil in salad dressings, pasta dishes, or drizzle it over roasted vegetables for a flavorful kick.
5. Chewy Cannabis Gummies: In a saucepan, combine 1/2 cup of fruit juice (such as orange or grape), 1/4 cup of honey, and 3 tablespoons of gelatin. Heat the mixture on low heat, stirring until the gelatin is fully dissolved. Remove from heat and add 1 tablespoon of cannabis tincture. Pour the mixture into silicone molds and refrigerate until set. Pop out the gummies and enjoy!
Remember, when cooking with cannabis, it's important to start low and go slow. Edibles can take longer to kick in compared to smoking or vaping, so be patient and wait at least an hour before consuming more. Also, be sure to label your edibles clearly and keep them out of reach of children and pets.
I hope these recipes inspire you to get creative in the kitchen and enjoy the wonderful world of cannabis edibles. Happy cooking!
