A rich and delicious cannabis-infused ham and potato soup recipe
It’s the thick of winter, and as we head into some of the coldest months of the year, it can help to keep some rich and hearty comfort food recipes on hand to keep you warm from the inside out. Though potato soup might sound boring, the versatility of this dish allows for so much change that you can truly make it your own with a few minor adjustments.
Toss in cheese, bacon, and sour cream as a garnish or enjoy the simplicity of a good old-fashioned ham and potato soup recipe. Either way, it will leave you feeling full for hours, and help you to drift off into a therapeutic food coma with the addition of a cannabis ingredient that will keep you smiling and laughing the whole way through.
Just remember that these edibles are potent, so while they might lead to a relaxing and euphoric experience, eating too much might leave you feeling uncomfortable or overwhelmed, so proceed with caution, and always remember to start low and go slow as you begin to experiment with and understand your tolerance to cannabinoids ingested through the stomach.
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 25 minutes
Calories: 195 per serving
- 3 ½ cups white russet potatoes (peeled and cubed)
- 3 ½ cups water
- 2 cups of milk
- ¾ cup cooked ham (cubed)
- ½ cup celery (diced)
- ½ cup onion (peeled and diced)
- 5 tablespoons cannabutter
- 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons chicken stock (granules)
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- Large pot
- Mixing spoons
Start by getting a large cooking pot ready on a burner, add water then toss in the potatoes, celery, ham, chicken stock, and onions.
Set the burner to medium heat and bring the liquid to a gentle boil.
Continue to cook the mixture for 15 minutes at a light boil, or until the potatoes are soft.
Right before the potatoes are done cooking, add the cannabutter to a saucepan and let it melt over medium heat.
Once the butter begins to bubble, slowly whisk in the flour to create a paste. Be sure to scrape the bottom of the saucepan to avoid scalding while the mix cooks for 1 full minute.
Now slowly pour in the milk, whisking it into the paste until it thickens and reaches a lump-free consistency.
Cook the white gravy liquid over medium heat for 5 minutes, mixing it frequently throughout the process.
Move the white sauce from the saucepan and dump it into the larger pot full of potatoes and the rest of the soup ingredients.
Stir the soup until the thicker paste is thoroughly incorporated and continue to cook the soup until it reaches your desired thickness.
How many bowls of this cannabis potato soup should I eat?
As you can probably tell from the large dose of cannabutter, this recipe tends to turn out some rather potent edibles that are ideal for a more experienced consumer. The potato soup recipe above makes 4 bowls, which should be enough to get 4 adults dosed. New consumers might want to try only ½ of a serving just to test the waters and see how the edibles might affect you before proceeding.
