This month for the Secret Recipe Club I was assigned Susan's blog The Wimpy Vegetarian.
Susan speaks of her journey as she moved to a plant based diet. It is challenging to cook different diets in the same household. Susan handles this with ease. While I cook both veg and and non veg meals at home I was amazed at her repertoire of dishes, be they condiments to sides to salads to mains. While I hovered over a few dishes, finding it very difficult to make up my mind, I finally decided to try this Garlic Olive Oil. Since I've been wanting to try infused oil for a while, I saw great potential uses in this one. I have used and planning to use this one in sundried tomatoes, pasta sauce, pesto, to name a few. Do hop over to Susan's blog to know more.
1 cup olive oil
20 large garlic cloves smashed
- Warm 1 tbs oil over medium low heat, add the garlic and sauté until softened,
- Add the remaining oil and keep warm for 45 mins.
- If the garlic begins to simmer remove from the heat to cool before rewarming.
- Strain the oil.
- Store for 3 weeks in fridge or 1week outside.
- Use as required.
lovely flavour to the oilReplyDelete
This would make a great gift too! Happy Reveal Day!!ReplyDelete
This sounds amazing.... I think I'd put it on EVERYTHING!! Yum!!ReplyDelete
This sounds so good and could be used for so many things!ReplyDelete
Sounds wonderful - we're huge garlic fans in my house; I can envision lots of delicious uses!ReplyDelete
I can think of so many ways to use this oil!!!ReplyDelete
Garlic oil is so versatile and delicious and it is so much better making your own.ReplyDelete
Such a versatile oil! Great pick this month :) PS...I enjoyed reading through your blog this month!!ReplyDelete
What a great choice for this month - flavoured oils are always so handy to have in the store cupboard - great for those quick mid-week meals when you want the flavour, but don't always have the time to be pfaffing around peeling and sauteeing garlic.ReplyDelete
I'm so glad you enjoyed my Garlic Oil! It's a great little condiment to have hanging around - you'll be surprised at all the ways you'll use it! Thanks so much for the kind comments :-)ReplyDelete
Happy Reveal Day and Great pick:) LynnReplyDelete
Garlic oil and other infused oils can be so convenient to have around in the kitchen...ReplyDelete
This would be sooo dangerous to have in my house :) Happy belated reveal day!ReplyDelete
I haven't made infused oils yet either. Garlic oil seems simple enough and will be used often too.ReplyDelete
great pick this month!
Oh my gosh that's so much garlic! But I bet this oil is fantastic - I'd spread that baby on bread and toast it up for garlic bread the easy way.ReplyDelete
