Alternate Infusion Options
To infuse this recipe with cannabis, we will use a homemade cannabis pesto.
There are many different ways to make a delicious, cannabis-infused pesto at home using ingredients you've already got.
Like all cannabis edibles, there is no right or wrong way to make something; it depends on your available options and personal preferences.
In this homemade pesto recipe, I show you how to make cannabis pesto using:
Use a Foil Pack Instead of Skewers
It's no secret that I love food on a stick for a good reason.
But the truth is that simplicity is key when making healthy cannabis recipes.
Just simple roasted veggies on the grill with homemade cannabis basil pesto on top is the perfect way to enjoy cannabis edibles more healthily.
I love to make these on skewers to get that delicious char on the outside, but I have made the same recipe in a foil packet when I don't have enough time to skewer everything, and it turned out just as delicious.
If you want to do it this way, you can throw your foil packet on the grill for 7-10 minutes or even roast it in the oven at 350°F for 20 minutes.
Frequently Asked Questions
In step 4, I recommend brushing these skewers with olive oil to prevent them from sticking to the grill. I do not recommend using cannabis-infused olive oil at this point, as the grill temperatures can be very high and potentially denature the THC in the oil. Save your infused oil for after the cooking process.
Just as above, I do not recommend brushing these skewers with pesto before grilling. Again, the temperatures of the grill can be too high and unpredictable. For the best results, wait until after the skewers have been completely cooked before adding the cannabis-infused pesto.
