Not all olive oils are the same, so it's important to select the right one for your next dish. The most common type is extra virgin olive oil, which is the classic style. This is made from cold-pressed olives and is not processed or refined, so it retains a unique olive flavour. Use extra virgin olive oil to sauté vegetables, marinade meats or create a healthy salad dressing.
Pure and light olive oils are more refined oils. The processes used for refinement filter out some of the distinctive olive taste, so they're a good choice for recipes that require a more neutral flavour. For example, they're commonly used as a butter substitute when making vegan cakes or cookies. They also make a good, versatile cooking oil to help prevent eggs, meats and vegetables from sticking to your pots and pans. Some are even available in a convenient spray form.
Regardless of which type of olive oils you buy, you can add them to a wide variety of dishes. Try adding a dash of olive oil to gazpacho, tomato soup or tomato-based Italian sauces to help reduce the acidity and create a smoother texture. Use it to make your own hummus by mixing olive oil with crushed chickpeas, tahini and your favourite herbs and spices. If you lightly brush fish, beef and other meats with olive oil before cooking, it can help seal in the juices and flavours for a more delicious meal. It's also a classic salad dressing ingredient. Mix it with other sauces and herbs for a bold flavour, or use it alone with a dash of balsamic or red wine vinegar for a light, healthy dressing. High-quality olive oils also taste delicious by themselves, so serve a bowl of olive oil with gourmet bread as a snack or appetizer.
