Cooking with cannabis

Cannabis is something that is often misunderstood, in my opinion. When most of us consider cannabis, we think of it being smoked, or consumed in a brownie or a gummy. But, in reality, cannabis can be used in a variety of dishes, and an article originally published at Foli offers up 15 different recipes using this delightful plant.

And we’re not just talking desserts here.

I thought I would pull a recipe from this article to include right here in this post in hopes of educating others about how versatile cannabis can be. Take a look:

Cannabis-infused Gnocchi

Ingredients:

  • 3 baking potatoes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 cups flour 
  • Weed-infused butter 
  • Grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
  • Salt

Directions:

  • Boil the potatoes with the skin on in salted water. Once done, remove the skin and finely mash them. 
  • Mix all products together with a wooden spoon, then knead the mixture on a floured cutting board. Roll out the dough into thick squares and cut them into small pieces. Roll the pieces and press into one side with the back side of a fork. 
  • Boil as many pieces as you wish to eat at one sitting for a few minutes until they rise to the top of the water, and place all remaining gnocchi in a plastic bag for future use. Strain and rinse the gnocchi, and top them with your favorite sauce or grated cheese.

I’m not sure about you, but if making gnocchi with cannabis isn’t a prime example of how versatile cooking with cannabis can be, I’m unsure of what is. The article also offers up recipes including macaroni and cheese, chicken wings, chilli, and a variety of desserts.

Cannabis isn’t something that is strictly associated with sweets when it comes to cooking. Get creative and see what you can come up with yourself.
