olive oil recipes
We've split our olive oil recipes into three sections - Swap, Swap, Start! Because these sections describe the three different ways you can use olive oil.
I'll explain each here - because it will also help you think about news ways you can introduce olive oil into your favourite recipes too.
Swap - these recipes are tried and trusted favourites where you simply swap butter for olive oil - with fabulous consequences for both flavour and your health.
Add - these are recipes that benefit from adding olive oil - such as adding Serriana Olive Oil to your shop bought hummus, or a salad, will just lift the flavour and aroma of your recipe.
New - lastly, the 'New' recipes includes recipes that you may not have tried yet. They all use a healthy amount of olive oil, and you can be sure they will be good for you too!
An olive oil diet is great for lowering cholesterol and building a healthy heart. However, make sure you buy premium olive oil from a quality artisan producer. You want your olive oil cold processed and not mixed with any cheaper oils (which is starting to happen quite a lot).
