Follow these tips to create an amazing pot infused ramen noodle soup
Firstly, it is best to make sure that the temperature of your pan is not too high. This is to preserve the integrity of your cannabis oil. By keeping a low heat you will protect your THC from degrading while your soup is cooking. Once all ingredients are added to the pot, you can crank up the heat to serve a piping hot soup.
A hugely popular choice for that comfort food is ramen, which has become a staple over the years for providing all the qualities of a traditional soup dish with wonderfully thick, flavorful noodles and a range of seasoning.
But don’t call ramen soup. It’s far from your mom’s chicken noodle concoction she made to get you through winter.
Ramen originated in China and eventually made its way over to Japan, where the adaptation of the dish is the most popular version of ramen today.
But what’s better than ramen? Making your own cannabis infused ramen on a rainy LA night. It’s not new information that cannabis enhances the flavor of food. If ramen is already the holy grail of all things comfort food, then cannabis is useful to create a whole new dining adventure. Plus, DIY’ing is always fun.
- Ramen noodles
- 20g butter
- 2 cups water
- 1–2g dried bud
- Additional spices—chili, oregano, etc.
- Vegetables—carrots, onion, garlic, etc.
- Spoon to stir
- Pour the water into a pot, and set the heat on medium. You want the water to simmer, not boil.
- Finely grind the bud if you intend to eat all plant material, or keep it relatively chunky if you want to sift out the material later on.
- Place the butter and weed in the hot water. The heat decarboxylates the buds, making them psychoactive, and the butter is necessary to bind the cannabinoids to fat. The temperatures can’t get too high otherwise the cannabinoids will degrade. The water is essential because it has a lower boiling point than the fat in the butter, cooling it down. Add more water if there’s barely any left.
- Cover the pot with a lid, and heat the mixture for around 30 minutes. Don’t turn up the heat; it should remain equally hot as before. Consider that cooking weed has a very distinct smell, which can be recognised by your flatmates or neighbours. You can turn on the ventilation if required.
- After 30 minutes, you can either sift out the cooked bud material, which barely contains any desired cannabinoids, or simply eat it together with the noodles. If you decide to sift out the buds, try not to remove too much fat, as that’s exactly what will get you high. You can do this by straining the liquid through a mesh sieve large enough for the fat to pass through, but too small for the chunks of plant matter.
- Add the ramen noodles into the mixture, together with the included spices. Keep simmering the water without boiling it, and stir the noodles for an even cook. When the noodles reach the desired consistency, place them in a bowl together with the broth, and voilà, your cannabis ramen noodle masterpiece is ready for consumption! The effects will hit anywhere between 30mins–3hours after eating the noodles.
If you’re fancy, you can add cheese, basil, and various vegetables into your recipe.
This recipe is very basic. You could also try other variations. For example, you could make cannabutter beforehand, and simply add it to the noodles whilst they’re cooking. It may save you time if you decide to eat cannabis ramen a lot. You could also make an olive oil cannabis extract and pour it over the noodles once they’re done. The choice is yours!
Note: The amounts of cannabis oil specified in this recipe is a very loose suggestion; the actual amount you use should be modified based on the strength of your cannabis oil and the potency you desire. Dosing homemade edibles can be tricky, so the best way to test for potency is to start with one portion of a serving, wait one to two hours, then make an informed decision on whether to consume more. Always dose carefully and listen to your body, and never drive under the influence of cannabis.
