If you’re a fan of CBD edibles, chances are you’ve spent more time-consuming sweet CBD treats than you have consuming savory. Sweet treats are easily accessible in the form of gummies, brownies, chocolate chip cookies, and more. They’re also pretty easy to make, as the recipes are basic, and most people have the ingredients on hand already.
But if you’re only eating sweet CBD oil products, you’re missing out! It’s true that the flavors of sweet CBD treats mask the earthy taste of CBD, which can be a very popular attribute of the products. But what if there was a way to mix up something delicious that complements rather than hides the natural flavor?
That’s where savory CBD goodies come in handy. You can cook up stir fries, breads, dips, and so much more using different strengths of CBD oils to meet your needs. If you’re ready to get into the kitchen and make something that makes you feel amazing and also tastes amazing, here are some savory recipes you have to try!
This is always a crowd pleaser for CBD users. Avocado is the perfect fruit to mash and mix with seasonings to complement your CBD oil. It’s also the perfect texture, since the oil doesn’t affect the texture as it’s supposed to be.
There are many recipes you can find to make this dish, but the basics involve mashing up your avocados, mixing in spices, and adding other ingredients like lime juice, tomatoes, onions, or cilantro. The best way to make guacamole is to add your seasonings to taste, seeing how the spices you chose mesh with your CBD oil an then enjoying the result.
2. CBD-Flavored Chips
What better way to enjoy your CBD guacamole than with homemade chips? This is one of the simplest CBD recipes, and they can be oven-baked or put in an air fryer. (Avoid cooking your CBD in oil, as it will likely be hot enough to break down the CBD enzymes and render them useless to you.)
Choose the base for your chip. You can do corn or flour tortillas cut into triangles, thinly sliced potatoes or sweet potatoes, kale, beets, carrots, or any other vegetable. Use CBD-infused olive oil (which you can purchase or make yourself) to toss your chosen vegetable. Sprinkle with salt or another seasoning.
Lay out on a baking sheet or in your air fryer and bake at no higher than 350 degrees until crispy. Baking time will vary based on the vegetable you chose and the thickness of your slices.
3. Salad Dressing
Salad dressings and vinaigrettes are also a great way to use CBD oil because they’re such versatile ingredients. You can easily add them to any dish, whether you’re making a green salad or a pasta dish. The texture of dressings and vinaigrettes are also perfect for CBD oil.
Adding CBD oil to your favorite dressing or vinaigrette recipe is easy. Simply add the desired dosage to the dressing serving you’re planning to put on your dish. Adjust the flavors accordingly if necessary, but usually, the flavor of the oil mixes pretty well with the existing flavors.
4. Pesto Pasta
Mmm, pesto with CBD oil sounds absolutely delicious! Pesto is a highly flavorful pasta dressing that can be adjusted to meet whatever flavors you need. It’s also a very nutritious meal because it includes healthy fats and complex carbs.
Most pesto ingredients will include a base of parsley, tomatoes, oil, pine nuts, garlic, and seasonings. The recipe may include other ingredients or seasoning as well. You can either add the CBD oil of your choice to the existing recipe or replace the olive oil in the recipe with a CBD-infused olive oil.
Serve with pasta. To include more protein in your meal, add a meat like chicken, Italian sausage, or spicy shrimp.
Here’s another strongly flavored dish that naturally pairs very well with the best CBD oil. Curry is perfect because it can be made with subtle flavors to allow the CBD oil to be the star of the dish, or it can be made with very strong seasonings to mask the taste of CBD oil. You can also adjust the spice level to your liking, which can also mask the CBD taste if desired.
Curry can be served over rice, with pasta, with potatoes or plain alongside fresh naan bread (which can also be seasoned with CBD oil and other flavorings if you’d like!).
6. Mashed Potatoes
Potatoes are a generally bland product, which works in your favor when it comes to cooking with CBD oil. You can mold and alter the flavors however you like to get the perfect savory dish.
If you’re looking for some flavor inspiration, try a mixture of parsley, parmesan cheese, garlic, and sage. Fresh parsley and sage are the standout flavors here, and they contain a familiar, earthy flavor that pairs surprisingly well with CBD oil. Be sure to add plenty of butter and sour cream to make the dish creamy and delicious.
Nothing goes quite so well with spaghetti and marinara sauce as freshly baked meatballs. This mixture of protein, fats, and spices also goes very well with CBD oil. It’s the right texture, and the flavors can easily meld to make something tasty.
There are many recipes you can try, but the most common include ground beef, dried breadcrumbs, a little milk, and your cannabidiol. It also requires fresh spices like garlic, onion, parsley, and salt and pepper. Parmesan cheese or a sprinkling of another Italian-inspired cheese helps to bind the meatballs together and add flavor. Herb-Crusted Rolls
Start with your favorite bread recipe or pick up some fresh rolls at your local bakery or supermarket.
You’ll need butter or olive oil (depending on your flavor preference), spices like thyme, basil, salt, pepper, minced garlic, and onion powder. Stir these ingredients together plus your cannabidiol and use a silicone baking brush to spread on top of the rolls. Serve while hot.
As you can see, CBD is a very diverse ingredient. The lesson here is that you can use CBD in pretty much any recipe if you can get the dosage, seasoning, texture, and heat settings correct. Play around with it and discover some amazing recipes that get you your daily dose of CBD oil along with a savory treat.
