Cheese Soufflé with cannabis infused thyme and sage sauce

via Jean McCabe | @qean_mccabe

THIS IS MY FAVORITE RECIPE FROM MY MOM! It's called Cheese Soufflé, and it takes a little while to make, but it's worth it. I used to ask for this for my birthday every year, and my mom would always complain because it requires using the oven and my birthday is in August and we didn't have air conditioning, but in the end she always made it anyway. The recipe says it serves three, but I'd say in reality it serves 5-6. Pick which sauce you want ahead of time (you COULD make both, but I think that's overkill). I prefer the veggie one. Also, you can make this gluten free by chopping up toasted gluten free bread to use as bread crumbs - it's fine if they're larger than usual bread crumbs, you can't tell the difference in the final product.”
