Whether you’d like to do something extra special for Mom, or you yourself are tired of burnt toast offerings (and just want to enjoy the day), look no further than this cannabis-infused brunch menu.
Using culinary oils or honey to deliver cannabis compounds, infused recipes are a sophisticated leap from ye olde pot brownies. While these dishes give you control over dosage, it’s a good idea to start low and slow, especially if you’re not familiar with edibles. Infusing just one of the recipes below might be good for beginners, or try serving the cannabis component on the side—especially if you or Mom might go in for seconds.
Start out your brunch with this refreshing, veggie-filled sipper that can be blended up with any fruits you have on hand. The cannabis-infused honey is added after you pour, so you can easily choose whether to include this step or not.
The best part of this simple dish is it can be made the night before, which allows the chia seeds to soak up the liquids and “set” the pudding. Infused with cannabis coconut oil, you can choose to cut the dosage in half or just use plain coconut oil.
These impressive sliders are piled high with mahi-mahi, crab cakes, avocado, mango and a generous slathering of cannabis-infused turmeric mayo sauce. You can prep most of the components the night before, so it’s just a quick fry in the skillet at brunch time. Think about serving the sauce on the side to finish brunch on a good note—not necessarily a high one.
Happy Mother’s Day!
