Cannabis-Infused Tomato Soup & Grilled Cheese

When your lunchtime cravings hit, this classic combination of tomato soup and grilled cheese will be sure to hit the spot. Don’t forget: you’ll need some prepared cannabutter before you get started. Always consume cannabis responsibly.

Preparation time: 20 minutes
Total time: 1 hour
Yield: 2 sandwiches, and approximately 6 servings of soup


  • Medium pot
  • Immersion bender (or blender)
  • Large, non-stick skillet (with lid)


For tomato soup:

  • 3 tsp cannabutter
  • Olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 can (28-ounces) crushed tomatoes
  • 4 cups of vegetable or chicken stock
  • 1 cup half-and-half, or milk
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • Salt and Pepper

For grilled cheese:

  • 1 tsp cannabutter, softened
  • 1 tbsp butter, softened
  • Olive oil
  • 4 slices of bread
  • 4 slices of cheddar cheese*

*This is where things get interesting. Feel free to experiment with different quantities and types cheeses.


  1. To start the soup, heat the cannabutter and a generous drizzle of olive oil over medium heat. Once the butter is melted, add the onion and cook until translucent, stirring frequently, about 6-8 minutes.

  2. While the onions cook, combine 1 tbsp of butter and 2 tsp of cannabutter in a bowl. Once combined, spread the mixture on one side of each slice of bread. Set aside.

  3. To the pot of onions, add crushed tomatoes and vegetable stock. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Add half-and-half, season with salt and pepper and simmer for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  4. While the soup is simmering, heat drizzle of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place two slices of bread in the pan, butter side down and top with cheese, dividing it evenly between each sandwich. Place remaining bread (butter side out) on top of the cheese and cover the pan with a lid. Cook until the bottom is golden brown, about 5-6 minutes. Flip the sandwiches and repeat on the other side. Remove from the heat and set aside.

  5. To finish the soup, use the immersion blender to purée it in the pot. If you are using a traditional blender, purée the soup in two smaller batches. Once divided into bowls, top with sour cream, or any garnish you’d like to try. Store any leftover soup covered in the fridge for up to 4 days. Enjoy!

With any cannabis-infused edibles, the general rule is to start with a low amount, and only increase slowly. Here at JWC, we would like to remind you that determining your dosage should be based on the information provided to you on your medical document. Do not change your dosage without first consulting with your healthcare provider. As always, make sure that your edibles are properly labelled and are stored out of reach of children and pets. When working with edible, cannabis-infused products, try to understand and maintain the ratios between the amount of cannabis and the butter or oil being infused. If your cannabis butter or oil is potent, consider reducing the amount used in your recipe by using a mix of infused and regular butter.
