Y’all have been asking for a weed infused Mac & Cheese recipe from me for AGES, and damn did I finally deliver! I don’t know why but adding broccoli into Mac & Cheese is truly my favorite way to make it, plus it adds some extra greens into your already “green” infused meal! And having it baked (get it?) with buttery breadcrumbs on top truly makes this a *chefs kiss* meal.
I’m so beyond happy to announce that this post/recipe is in collaboration with LEVO Oil! If you don’t know about LEVO, let me give you some facts.
What is it? An infusing machine that you can infuse any herb into any oil, milk, etc. to make your recipes extra delicious! Not only can you make weed infused oil in this machine with a few simple steps, but you can make lavender infused oat milk for your coffee, infused simple syrups for drinks, infused oils for dressings or to amp up any recipes. I’ve worked with LEVO for years now and their product has made my life so much easier, especially when it comes to making weed infused oil. I have a whole post on how to make your own here, using a crockpot, which works great but it requires a lot of steps! Using the LEVO device allows you to decarb, activate, and infuse all within the machine in a few easy steps, plus you can adjust the time and temperature depending on the strength you want your oil! Plus it’s nice because you just set your settings and can walk away until it’s done, no babysitting, stirring, etc.!
The LEVO Infuser has 3 settings- Dry, Activate, & Infuse which make creating your dream infusions that much easier. It is simple & easy to use, with a digital display time, temperature presets, a precise temperature sensor, you can save and store your favorite infusion settings, and has wireless control via the LEVO app! It is effective, easy to clean, and can infuse anything like oil, honey, milk, butter, and glycerin with an easy dispense mechanism.
The LEVO has truly made my weed oil making life so much easier, and even if I didn’t work with them I would 110% recommend this product for anyone looking to make weed infused oil, wether you’re an amateur or are well experienced! You can head to www.levooil.com to check out their products! They also have accessories to help you create all of your infused dreams.
Making this Mac & Cheese truly couldn’t be easier, the most timely step is just making your weed infused oil! Once you have that done, it takes almost no time to come together. All you have to do is make your sauce, boil your pasta & blanch your broccoli, mix everything together and top with buttery weed infused breadcrumbs, and then bake until golden brown! I have a how to video up on my instagram reels @plvntfood if you want to check it out!
You can find the full recipe below, but I wanted to just give an extra big thanks to LEVO for collaborating with me on this incredible recipe! Plus once you have your weed oil, you can use it in any recipe in place of the oil it calls for to make all your food infused with THC goodness! Personally for my own tastes, I do a 3 hour infusion at 175F. But experiment and see what works best for you and your desired infusions! I can’t wait to see all of your recreations. It truly is the best cannabis infuser I’ve personally tried and the fact you can also use it as a cannabutter infuser is also quite amazing. The possibilities are truly endless with this device and I can’t wait to see what you make!
Weed Infused Broccoli Mac & Cheese
Weed Infused Cheese Sauce
- 4 tbsp Weed Infused Coconut Oil made with the LEVO Oil Infuser
- 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
- 2 1/2-3 cups plain unsweetened plant milk
- 2 bags shredded vegan cheddar cheese
- 1/2 tbsp each ground mustard, sea salt, cajun seasoning, garlic powder, and onion powder
- 1 lb. shell pasta
- 1 lb. broccoli florets, finely chopped
- 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
- 1 tbsp Weed Infused Coconut Oil made with the LEVO Oil Infuser
- 1 tbsp melted vegan butter
Weed Infused Cheese Sauce
Make your weed infused oil using the LEVO Oil Infuser set at 175F for 3 hours. I personally used refined coconut oil, but use whatever oil or vegan butter you desire!
Add your infused oil to a sauce pot until shimmering and whisk in your flour to create a roux. Once well combined, add your other ingredients & whisk over medium heat until the cheese has melted and everything is nice and smooth.
Mac & Cheese
Boil your pasta in salted water until cooked through, but about 1-2 minutes before its ready, add in your broccoli to cook. Drain well and mix with your cheese sauce.
Take your breadcrumbs, weed oil and vegan butter and mix together.
Place your Mac & Cheese in a baking dish, top with breadcrumbs, and place under the broiler on low until the breadcrumbs are golden brown!
Let cool for 5 minutes, then dig in! Enjoy responsibly.
