Olive oil is seen to have one of the best fat profiles. It has only 2 grams of saturated fat per tablespoon. Olive oil is ideal for sauces, marinades, salad dressings, dips, or sauteing. We usually use it to saute our vegetables and stir fry’s.
This dinner was chicken, tofu, and mushrooms, sauteed in olive oil and drizzled with balsamic vinegar at the end. Served over rice. I thought it was delicious. The kids picked out the mushrooms, but didn’t notice the tofu.
Cereal boy LOVES rice and wants to have it every night for dinner. They add a tiny bit of saturated fat butter, and a touch of salt and pepper. The chicken and rice never touch, which is why they need the fat to flavor up their rice a bit.
Olive oil comes in different forms. Extra-virgin, virgin, and pure olive oil. The most intense flavor is in the extra virgin because it is only been through one pressing. For a less strong flavor, your pure olive oil is ideal. If you have loads of money to drop, besides sending it to me, you can also use olive oil as a skin softener.
