Cannalife Pumpernickel Open Face Panini

We are a big fan of this amazing recipe crafted for us by Tricha!

Buy sliced pumpernickel round loaf for these as they make a great serving size for one slice per person!

The small ends make for great croutons if you chop and toss with oil and toast in oven till crispy.  Add salt and pepper or your favourite spice!!

Brush each side of the sliced pumpernickel bread with .5 tsp of Cannalife Botanicals Infused Olive Oil.
1 tsp per each piece of bread.

**Disclaimer: The amount of Cannalife Botanicals Olive Oil used will determine dosage, please know your tolerance.

1 Teaspoon of Cannalife Botanicals Olive Oil= 20mg THC

Lay the bread flat on a nonstick cookie sheet and toast in oven at 325 for 5 minutes.

Flip toast halfway.

Remove toast from the oven.

For this recipe I added the following ingredients:

–  Thin spread of mayo and grainy Dijon mustard.
–   Thinly sliced genoa salami.
–   Finely grated smoked applewood cheddar.
–   Finely chopped roasted red pepper.
–   Finely chopped green onion.
–   Finely grated extra old cheddar.

Place the stacked open faced Panini back on the cookie sheet and put it back in the oven to toast it to desired crispness.  I toasted mine 5 more minutes

Feel free to customize and choose any toppings you wish.
If you desire extra crispy, simply leave it in the oven longer.

Enjoy!

Sauteed Orange Ginger Garlic Dandelion Greens Drizzled over Cajun Prawns

At Cannalife Botanicals we like to turn to nature for health and use the medicinal plants we have growing in our organic garden for our hand crafted topicals.  We believe in using sacred plants in combination to achieve herbal synergy.

Synergy: the interaction of elements that when combined produce a total effect that is greater than the sum of the individual elements.

We also enjoy incorporating edible medicinal plants into our diets, especially when they are so readily available.

We have a few friends and family members battling cancer.  So we are always investigating  and seeking out new solutions and supports in their treatment regimes.

We recently read this article in the CBC about a $157K research grant to study a cancer killing dandelion tea!

http://www.cbc.ca/beta/news/canada/windsor/cancer-killing-dandelion-tea-gets-157k-research-grant-1.1248382

And it inspired us to spread the word and learn more about this amazing plant so we can encourage others to add dandelions as a delicious, healthy addition to their diet.

dandelion

The Dandelion, which literally translates into “lion’s tooth” in French, is rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, iron and calcium and detoxifiers which explains its common inclusion in medicines.

It has many health benefits including: relief from liver and gall bladder disorders, diabetes, urinary disorders, acne, jaundice, cancer, anemia to name a few.  This wonderful plant also helps to maintain bone health and support weight loss.

For Cancer: Dandelions are very high in antioxidants, such as vitamin-C and Luteolin, which can reduce the free radicals (major cancer-causing agents) in the body, thereby reducing the risk of cancer. It also detoxifies the body, which further helps protect from the development of tumors and various cancers. Luteolin actually poisons essential components of cancer cells when it binds to them, rendering them ineffective and unable to reproduce. This characteristic has been demonstrated most notably with prostate cancer, although there are other studies being done.

So, this week we worked with Trich to create a really yummy, healthy dish featuring dandelions greens.

Ingredients 

GREENS
2 cups of freshly foraged young dandelion greens well rinsed.
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
3 cloves chopped fresh garlic
 PRAWNS 
6 large tiger prawns tossed in oil and dry Cajun spice

*Disclaimer: The amount of Cannalife Botanicals Olive Oil used will determine dosage, please know your tolerance.

1 Teaspoon of Cannalife Botanicals Olive Oil= 20mg THC

Directions
Sauté chopped garlic and ginger in Cannalife Botanicals Coconut Oil on high.SauteedDandelionGreensCajunPrawns
Once garlic softens, add dandelion greens and orange juice.
Sauté until the greens are just wilted.
Separate the greens and place on a serving plate.
Sauté tiger prawns in the liquid still in pan.
Do not over cook .
Transfer prawns on top of the dandelion greens.
Drizzle remainder of the liquid and garlic over entire dish.
Enjoy!
