From Pot to Plate: Romantic Date Night Recipes with a Cannabis Twist

From Pot to Plate: Romantic Date Night Recipes with a Cannabis Twist

Whether you are dating someone new or have been married for twenty years, romantic date nights are key to relationship satisfaction and success. Romantic date nights are often associated with fancy restaurants and expensive bottles of wine, but if this isn’t your idea of a good time, a night in with some cannabis-infused dishes might be perfect for you.

Setting the Scene for Romance

The key to a romantic date at home is the ambiance. Imbibing cannabis with your date is an intimate experience that will be amplified with the right atmosphere. Lower the lights, light some scented candles, and play relaxing music. Make sure to set the table with a tablecloth and nice dishes with flowers to brighten the room. Then sit back and enjoy your evening unfold.

An Appetizer to Impress

If you are new to edible marijuana, you might be surprised by all of the options. Cannabis can be infused into dishes using infused oils, butter, and more. To use cannabis to cook, it first needs to be decarboxylated(decarbed) either by heating the buds at low temperatures or using sous vide. If you would like to skip this step, dispensaries sell cannabutter and premade-infused cooking oils. With these ingredients, you can make delicious and romantic appetizers.

Grilled Clams with Infused Buttery Garlic Breadcrumbs

Clams are a well-known aphrodisiac, so preparing them with cannabis bread crumbs will set the stage for a romantic evening.


  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4½ teaspoons unsalted cannabutter
  • 1½ teaspoons olive oil
  • ½ cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • Zest of ½ lemon
  • ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 24 littleneck clams, scrubbed


  1. Saute garlic with butter and oil in a large skillet until translucent and fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Stir in breadcrumbs; cook, stirring often, until toasted, 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Off heat, add parsley, lemon zest, and salt; when cool, transfer to a storage container.
  4. Heat grill to high. Scatter a single layer of clams across the grill. Cover; grill until clams open, 6 to 8 minutes.
  5. Transfer clams to a platter using tongs, taking care not to spill liquid from shells.
  6. Sprinkle with reserved breadcrumbs.

Entree Extravaganza

After your romantic appetizer, it is time to move on to your tantalizing entree. Practically any of your favorite entrees can be made cannabis delights by substituting cannabis-infused butter and oils. It is essential to consider your dosage and adjust for individual tolerance and comfort. Also, you can slow THC absorption by ensuring your stomach is full, and baked feta pasta is a great way to do this.

Baked Feta Pasta


  • 1 small pack of cherry tomatoes (about 1-1 ½ cups)
  • 1 shallot, quartered
  • 3 cloves of garlic, smashed
  • Cannabis-infused olive oil
  • olive oil
  • Salt
  • Red pepper flakes
  • 8-ounce block of Feta cheese
  • Thyme
  • Basil
  • 10 oz. of your pasta of choice


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Combine the tomatoes, shallot, garlic, half a cup of olive oil, and a quarter cup of THC olive oil. Season with salt and red pepper flakes to taste, stirring to combine well.
  3. Place the block of feta in the middle of the tomato/shallot/garlic mixture, scattering the thyme all over the tomatoes. Bake for 40-45 minutes, when the tomatoes are about to burst and the feta is golden.
  4. Cook your pasta as the instructions dictate, saving ½ of the pasta water afterward.
  5. Add your cooked pasta and reserved pasta water to the feta mixture, adding one tablespoon of Om Edibles THC oil and stirring everything together until well combined.
  6. Top with basil and serve hot.

A Decadent Dessert

Any romantic meal should be finished with an indulgent dessert. While you might be tempted to reach for your favorite brownie recipe, this meal would be perfectly paired with romantic chocolate-covered strawberries.

Chocolate-Covered Strawberries


  • 3 bars of 100mg cannabis-infused chocolate
  • a dozen strawberries
  • saucepan
  • heat-safe glass bowl


  1. Fill a saucepan halfway with water
  2. Bring the water to a boil
  3. Place the glass bowl on top of the saucepan
  4. Fill the bowl with the chocolate and allow the chocolate to melt
  5. Dip the strawberries in the chocolate and place them on a parchment-lined pan
  6. Place the chocolate-covered strawberries in the refrigerator to cool

Pair With a Cannabis Cosmopolitan

Most traditional cocktails can be infused with cannabis tincture. Cannabis can take the place of alcohol or be used in conjunction, but it is imperative to consider the effects. To try a cannabis mocktail in place of a cocktail, try this cosmopolitan recipe:


  • 3 grams tincture
  • 1 oz cranberry juice
  • 0.5 oz orange juice
  • 0.5 oz lime juice
  • 1 splash of simple syrup
  • 1 orange thinly sliced


  1. Pour all the ingredients into a shaker with ice.
  2. Shake well
  3. strain into a martini glass
  4. garnish with an orange slice
