At GB The Green Brand we love coming up with quirky recipes with a hint of cannabis to them! Today we’re going to have a look at a dish that doesn’t take much to make at all; Vegetable Pot Pie, and by pot we mean weed! This dish is incredibly easy to make and is deliciously healthy, as long as you don’t go overboard with your special ingredient! So, get your aprons on growers, it’s time to cook!
Before getting started
The recipe that you’re about to cook contains cannabutter, which you will need to make beforehand. It takes a bit longer to make. If you don’t know how to make cannabis butter, check out this post that’ll tell you everything you need to know to prepare the main ingredient in many medicinal and recreational cannabis dishes. Once you have your cannabutter, you can begin getting your ingredients ready to make that vegetable pie!
Vegetable Pot Pie with Cannabis Ingredients
The following ingredients should be enough for 4-6 servings.
- One carrot
- One small onion
- Half a zucchini
- Half a red pepper
- 250g flour
- 35g cannabutter
- Four eggs
- 15g baking soda capsules
- 80g grated cheese
- Olive oil and salt
Vegetable Pot Pie with Cannabis prep
Step 1: Chop your vegetables, all roughly the same size. Fry them on low heat in a pan with a bit of olive oil and salt.
Step 2: Melt your cannabutter slowly as not to burn it and let it cool down.
Step 3: Pre-heat your oven to 170°C. Start preparing the dough; pour your flour, baking soda and eggs into a bowl and mix well; then add your cooled cannabutter and a pinch of salt.
Step 4: It’s time to mix in your veggies and some cheese, making sure that the mixture is as even as possible. Put your mixture in an oven-appropriate baking tray, sprinkle the rest of your cheese over the top and cook it for 30-40 mins at around 170°C, lowering the temperature during the last 10 minutes if the cheese begins to burn.
Step 5: Once the pie looks golden and is fully cooked through, take it out of the oven and let it cool.
Step 6: Plate it, make it look nice if you have friends over and enjoy!
Vegetable Pot Pie with Medicinal Cannabis (CBD Rich)
This dish can also be made into a medicinal dish if you use CBD-rich cannabis rather than THC-heavy strains. You’ll need to have access to some way of analyzing or checking the cannabinoids in your cannabis in order to make sure that it has low THC levels and high CBD. If not done right you may end up feeling a psychoactive effect, which is not what you’re looking for with CBD.
Once you have your CBD rich Cannabis, all you have to do is make your cannabutter with it – easy! The only difference here is that you’ll have CBD-rich cannabutter, which isn’t psychoactive like THC while still containing medicinal cannabinoids.
When ingesting cannabis rather than smoking it, it produces a much stronger and longer-lasting effect that may actually take a while to fully kick in. The best way to try edibles is to have a small amount and wait a while to see how it feels. If after a couple of hours you don’t feel anything, try some more and see how it feels.
If you feel like you had too much and you’re having a bad trip, the best thing you can do is simply try and calm down, drink something with sugar in it, eat some munchies and stay patient; the effect can last hours.
It’s VERY IMPORTANT to keep any food made with cannabis out of reach of children or adults that don’t know that it contains cannabis; keep it somewhere up high that kids can’t get to and clearly label it so that nobody accidentally eats it.
