Try these ideas with your olive oil:

  • Pasta: Drizzle over pasta just after it is cooked and drained 
  • Couscous: Mix in with couscous just before serving
  • Salads: Toss salad leaves in Olive oil and then add lemon juice to taste and over raw vegetables
  • Cooked vegetables, drizzle over lightly cooked beans, spinach, broccoli etc.
  • Mash potatoes in olive oil instead of butter, if you wish add crushed garlic.
  • Meat or fish drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil once cooked.
  • Bread or Dukkha: Dip them in oil.
  • Vanilla ice cream or Fruit salad drizzle over for something unusual to try but taste really great
