We use all different types of oils in cooking, with olive oil being the most commonly used. Whether you’re quickly marinating, making a salad dressing, or using a small amount to cook with, oil gets used a lot.
Spice up your oil regimen and try incorporating this new kind of oil into your diet: chive oil. Chives are an onion type vegetable that is low in calories and high in vitamins A and C.
Making your own chive oil will add a different, enhanced taste to your food without packing on unnecessary calories.
The recipe is as follows:
1 bunch of chives, roucghly chopped
1 cup of blended canola or vegetable oil
1 tsp. of salt
Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth.
Voila, now you have an added mild but unique taste to your usual foods!
