Key Takeaways

This recipe utilizes not only cannabis infused coconut oil and cannabis-infused quality maple syrup, it also takes advantage of decarboxylated (activated) fresh kief.

As a former hippie and working professional chef with deep roots in the American Farm-to-Fork movement, it is great to see the cannabis plant move into the mainstream and onto the dinner table. More importantly into people’s kitchens and cupboards.


Having several different pantry items to utilize in your daily cooking that contain cannabinoids lessens the chaos of not knowing what to do to get your products infused. There are countertop botanical extractors that are very affordable and super simple to use, especially for those cooks that truly enjoy making their own infused products.

This recipe utilizes not only cannabis infused coconut oil and cannabis-infused quality maple syrup, it also takes advantage of decarboxylated (activated) fresh kief. And again, with legitimacy in legalization and more people creating kitchen equipment and gadgets that help the culinary world process different parts of the cannabis plant, we now have electric countertop kief sifters.


I would highly recommend using a creamy cultivar with this recipe, something like Orange Dream, Mendo Breath, or Wedding Cake. Roasted sweet potatoes and salted peanuts mingle with curry paste and coconut milk to create an incredibly velvety smooth bowl of soup.

Please don’t spend too much time with the sweet potato and yam debate… use whichever you choose. Over time the name yam and sweet potato have been used interchangeably in conversation, at the supermarket, and even in cooking. Although they are both root vegetables, they are really two different vegetables, belonging to two different plant families. The sweet potato is from the morning glory family while the yam is related to the lily. In my opinion, yams are slightly starchier than sweet potatoes and can grow much larger. Both are a staple food in many parts of the world, and they are a good source of fiber, potassium, and minerals.

While peanuts technically belong to the legume family, many still refer to them as a nut. Either way, the salted and roasted variety are going right in the pot to make this soup.


After you let it simmer for 35-40 minutes, it is best to let this soup rest for 30 minutes or so before puréeing in a high-speed blender. Be sure to thoroughly purée the soup, making it velvety smooth. If you need to thin it out, be sure to re-season every time you add liquid. Although it may give a fall soup vibe, this curried cannabis sweet potato purée is best anytime you make it.

I hope you enjoy this soup as much as I love an excuse to make copious amounts of cannabis infused maple syrup lacquered bacon!
