How Can I Use Olive Oil to Enhance My Cooking & Health?
July 16, 2012, 5:59 p.m.
* Salad dressings (Rule of Thumb: 3 parts oil to 1 part balsamic) * Marinades for meat, fish, poultry * Finishing for soups and stews * Drizzled on pasta, pizza and veggies (raw or roasted) for added flavor * In baked goods like breads, cakes, cookies * Drizzle it over salad or mix it into dressings * Use in marinades or sauces for meat, fish, poultry and vegetables. Oil penetrates nicely into the first few layers of the food being marinated. * Add at the end of cooking for a burst of flavor * Drizzle over cooked pasta or vegetables * Use instead of butter or margarine as a healthy dip for bread. Pour a little olive oil into a small dish and add a few splashes of balsamic vinegar, which will pool in the middle and look very attractive. * For an easy appetizer, toast baguette slices under the broiler, rub them lightly with a cut clove of garlic, and add a little drizzle of olive oil. * Replace butter with olive oil in mashed potatoes or on baked potatoes. For the ultimate mashed potatoes, whip together cooked potatoes, roasted garlic, and olive oil; season to taste. * Make a tasty, heart-healthy dip by mixing cooked white beans, garlic, and olive oil in a food processor; season to taste with your favorite herbs. * Use olive oil in your sauces -- whisking will help emulsify, or blend, the watery ingredients with the oil in the sauce. * Brush it on meats before grilling or broiling to seal in the meat flavor and juices and create a crispy exterior. * Add to eggs and drizzle over toast. * Sprinkle on brown rice * Before refrigerating homemade pesto, add a thin layer of extra virgin olive oil on top of the sauce after putting it in a jar so the pesto will keep its green color. * Most people don't think of using olive oil when baking, but it's actually a great way to get more monounsaturated fat and polyphenolic compounds into your diet. * Choose the milder extra virgin olive oil for baking, especially savory breads and sweets such as cakes, cookies and other desserts. * Substituting olive oil for butter dramatically reduces the amount of fat -- especially saturated fat -- in your baked goods.
