It’s time to test your cannabis culinary skills with this unique French dish
Ratatouille essentially became famous thanks to the 2007 Pixar animated movie. However, the recipe for Provençal-style braised vegetables has much older origins. It’s a cult dish for everyone involved in cooking, from chefs to food critics, but also for simple gourmets who find memories and emotions in food.
Ratatouille is generally a vegetable stew made with zucchinis, eggplants, red and yellow peppers, tomatoes and onions, to which other vegetables can be added. Those greens could easily be cannabis.
You will need:
3 T olive oil
1 onion large, yellow or white, diced
1 T garlic minced
2 cupCs eggplant diced, 1 medium eggplant
1 C zucchini diced, 2 small zucchini
1 C yellow summer squash diced, 2 small squash
1 red bell pepper or green bell pepper, large, diced
1 1/2 C tomatoes diced
1 t dried oregano
1/2 t dried thyme
3/4 t salt
1 t black pepper
2 T cannabis-infused olive oil
1/3 C fresh basil chopped
To begin, heat about a tablespoon and a half of olives in a large skillet, preferably cast iron, over medium-high heat. Add in line and sauté until softened, about three minutes. Proceed to add the garlic.
Add the remaining tablespoon and half of the oil and add the eggplant and sauté for about five minutes. Add the zucchini and yellow squash and cook, stirring frequently, for about the same amount of time. Add the tomatoes, oregano, thyme, salt and pepper and cook. Stir in the cannabis oil and fresh basil leaves until well combined. Serve hot.
