Feel like all you’ve been eating is pasta and sourdough bread? Same. You’re not the only one reaching for comfort foods during these uncertain times. And while yes, it’s always a good idea to dive into a bowl of cheese and carbs, sometimes your body craves lighter fare, as a break. You could make a salad but maybe you’re in the mood for something warm and comforting without being too heavy.
For a delicious, indulgent, and nutritious treat consider the humble sweet potato. But it’s not the bright orange yam you might swaddle in marshmallows every November — this recipe calls for the Japanese kind, which has a sweeter and nuttier flavor. Mixed with savory miso, THC-infused honey, and THC-olive oil, this double-baked sweet potato dish is delicious, relaxing, and nutritious. Give it a try as a side to your favorite entree or make it as a healthy snack. And if you only have a traditional sweet potato, that’s fine too: recipes are made to riff upon.
Twice Baked Sweet Potato with Honey Miso
Makes 2 sweet potatoes
• 2 large Japanese sweet potatoes
• 2 tablespoons of white miso
• 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
• 1 tablespoon cannabis-infused honey, like Potli
• 1 tablespoon of chopped chives
• 1 teaspoon of toasted sesame seeds
• Cracked black pepper, to finish
• 2 Tbsp cannabis-infused olive oil, like Potli
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Rinse sweet potatoes and scrub them clean. Place them on a baking sheet and bake for 1 hour, until soft.
Remove them from the oven and allow them to cool enough that you can touch them. Split the sweet potato open and gently remove flesh with a spoon, reserving the skin.
In a mixing bowl, add white miso, butter, and cannabis-infused honey. Mash until the mixture is smooth.
Add mixture back into sweet potato skin and bake for another 15 minutes in the oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Garnish with chives, toasted sesame seeds, cracked black pepper, and drizzle with cannabis-infused olive oil.
Serve hot and enjoy!
