Hosting a Christmas dinner is fun and exciting but also a little exhaustive. If you plan to invite your entire family, you know it requires massive meal preparations. Though the traditional recipes always work great, bringing some new recipes to the table is welcoming.
So while you might have perfected the recipes of all time, a little add on like CBD oil can make your dishes even more delightful. Though it may not do much for the flavor, it can add a host of health benefits to your meal. Especially with the stress of travel, a CBD oil-infused pizza can do the trick. Likewise, a gravy with CBD oil can be so therapeutic and comfortable for your digestion.
Here are some out of the box CBD infused recipes that can bring a fresh punch to you Christmas dinner and keep the traditional vibe intact.

A potato mash is a fantastic comfort dish that your vegan friends will love too. Drizzle some olive oil on the garlic clove and wrap it in the foil.

Cook until they turn soft (at least 25 minutes). Mash the potatoes with the help of a masher. Now separate the skin of the garlic clove by squeezing the bottom. Add garlic to the potatoes and mix well.
In a separate bowl, whisk together cream and CBD oil. If you are looking for a vegan variation, you can choose almond cream and strong CBD oil. Add it to the potatoes. Also, add balsamic vinegar, fresh parsley, and mix thoroughly—season with salt and pepper. Creamy mashed potatoes are ready to be served.

The Bottom Line
Cooking or heating CBD oil can mess with its potency. Hence it is better to introduce CBD oil after you finish cooking. One of the best times to add CBD is within a few minutes after your dish cooks. The warmth of the food allows the oil to merge well with the dish without tampering its efficacy. Whisking CBD oil in your creams, frosting, and icing are the best way to introduce them to your cakes and other baking items. Make sure you distribute it evenly among portions so that all your guests can enjoy its optimum benefits.
