Roasted Eggplant with Cannabis-Infused Tahini

There’s something magical about eggplant with its burnished purple skin and surprisingly meaty, satisfying flesh. But why stop at simple magic when you can achieve wizardry?

Here, we roast eggplant to perfection, then smother it in cannabis-infused tahini and spiced canna-chickpeas for an altogether out-of-this world dish. Serve it as a side or a vegetarian main, and prepare to make this one again and again.
