A standing O-vation for olive oil the ultimate kitchen all-star

A little olive oil goes a long way

What’s nutritious, delicious, and has the power to evoke excitement for healthy eating? Olive oil, of course! Whether you want to switch to better-for-you cooking oils or create healthy dishes that you crave (not cringe), olive oil is an almighty, all-purpose essential in home cooking. Dive in to discover all the ways olive oil can complement conscious eating and transform a healthy diet from dull to dreamy.

Turn to extra virgin olive oil for healthy home cooking

Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) is an excellent alternative to solid fats such as butter, margarine, and lard, as well as tropical vegetable oils such as palm and coconut, which tend to be high in saturated fats. Plus, it can take the heat in most cooking scenarios with a moderately high smoke point of 350⁰ – 410⁰ F.

  • Cook with EVOO — EVOO is a safe and stable cooking oil for sauteing, stir-frying, and pan-frying foods on the stovetop.
  • Bake with EVOO — Swap canola, vegetable oil, butter, or margarine with EVOO for enhanced flavor and health benefits when baking. Generally, you can replace other oils with a 1:1 ratio or a 3:4 ratio (solid fat:oil) for butter and margarine.
  • Grill with EVOO — Brush proteins and veggies with EVOO to prevent sticking and use EVOO to create marinades, sauces, and condiments to elevate grilled goodies.
  • Veg out with EVOO — Whisk EVOO with your favorite vinegar, a pinch of salt, a dash of freshly cracked pepper, perhaps another spice or herb, and voila — vinaigrette! Making vinaigrettes from scratch offers a quick, easy, and healthy way to perk up your favorite salads and vegetable dishes.

O’s EVOOs are 100% California grown and crushed within hours of harvest for high-quality, nutrient-dense deliciousness. Fresh, fragrant, and favored by professional and home chefs alike.
