The future of cooking: cannabidiol recipes and inspiration
Cannabidiol on a plate? What sounds strange at first glance is definitely worth a culinary try. CBD oil in particular can tickle the taste buds, sometimes sweet and sometimes savory. Get involved in the kitchen experiment - here are some culinary ideas!
Cannabidiol - what is the legal situation and what are the benefits?
When it comes to creative cooking with cannabidiol, CBD oil is usually mentioned. The most important information first: CBD is completely legal in Germany and is available in special CBD stores, for example. The only two requirements for legality are that the CBD is produced from industrial hemp and that the THC content is below 0.2%. Accordingly, it has no intoxicating effect. CBD oil is said to have a number of positive aspects. On the one hand, it has a slightly relaxing effect on many people. It can alleviate stress symptoms and have a positive influence on the production of the happiness hormone dopamine. CBD is even said to have a cell-protecting effect - so why not simply add it to your diet?
What does CBD oil taste like?
CBD oil is not a foodstuff. Nevertheless cannabidiol can be used in cooking and it's even really tasty. But what is the taste of CBD oil actually like? Some people describe the taste as slightly grassy, others as earthy and slightly tart or pleasantly nutty. These flavor descriptions alone make you want to get creative in the kitchen.
CBD oil as a slightly nutty addition to raw food
With its slightly nutty flavor, CBD oil is an interesting ingredient in salad dressings. A few splashes of CBD oil add an exciting note to the classic vinegar-oil dressing for green salads, as do yoghurt-based dressings. For example, try a dressing made from natural yogurt or an alternative based on soy or oats. Add salt, pepper, a little fresh lemon juice and some mustard to taste. A few dashes of CBD oil are a particularly nice addition to nutty salads such as lamb's lettuce. Or add this special ingredient to fresh raw vegetable salads made from carrots, cucumber or tomatoes. If you like, add crunchy roasted nuts and seeds to the salad and, together with a roll or slice of bread, you have conjured up a light lunchtime snack in no time at all. The slightly tangy CBD oil is also an excellent addition to a fresh yoghurt dip for dipping raw vegetables or a homemade guacamole, making it both delicious and healthy.
Spice up savory dishes with cannabidiol
There are no limits to creativity when cooking with cannabidiol. CBD oil spices up vegetable soups and pasta sauces. Spicy curries from Indian cuisine and a few drops of the oil also go very well over a quick scrambled egg as an exciting culinary accent. There are generally no special features to consider when cooking. Prepare your favorite dishes as usual and add the oil to the dish at the end. Alternatively, each:r at the table can add more or less drops of oil directly to their plate as they wish.
From smoothies to porridge in the morning
Start the morning with a smoothie. Whatever the seasonal calendar has to offer can go in here. Sweet bananas form the basis, complemented by fruits such as oranges, apples or kiwis. A good amount of green should not be missing. Fresh spinach is a classic for delicious and healthy smoothies. If you want something more filling, add oat flakes or a spoonful of nut butter such as almond butter or peanut butter. Finish with fresh lemon and CBD oil. With delicious smoothies to suit your taste, you can get a health boost in the morning and start the new day feeling relaxed thanks to CBD. The oil also goes well in porridge or sweet semolina porridge to create a slightly tart, nutty taste.
Whether sweet or savory: CBD oil really whets the appetite for creative cooking. Especially those who find the earthy-tart taste too intense on its own will benefit from adding it to delicious dishes.
