Variety is the spice of life, and by our very nature, we tend to get used to things pretty quickly. That’s where our special infusion range of oils comes in – our delicious Extra Virgin Avocado Oil but with a twist! Six of them to be exact. Each one is different but incredible in its own way.
Avocado oil infused with garlic
In many cultures, garlic is the cure for what ails you.
Used as a home remedy for everything from high blood pressure to the common cold, garlic is a staple of cuisine around the world.
Belonging to the same family as onions, it is used in all types of cooking, with a little touch of garlic improving the flavour of everything from pasta dishes to soups.
If you find raw garlic too much, then our avocado oil infused with a touch of it is perfect. Just enough to add flavour, not enough to make your eyes water!
Avocado oil infused with rosemary
Rosemary has been a common ingredient all throughout civilisation, going back thousands of years. It’s been so ubiquitous, in fact, it has the nickname of “the herb of a thousand uses”, and it’s not difficult to see why.
A strong, beautiful fragrance, its distinctive aroma is so strong that it is used to flavour protein as it cooks, and you’ll often find rosemary stuffed inside a roast on a Sunday afternoon.
Rosemary was traditionally used to help alleviate muscle pain, improve memory, boost the immune and circulatory system, and promote hair growth. With modern medicine proving the herb is a rich source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, those old wives’ tales might be right!
Avocado oil and lemon
Lemon is a wonderful ingredient to have in the kitchen as you can use it in almost anything. Not only does lemon enhance fish, poultry and red meat, but it is a common ingredient in baking.
Containing many nourishing components like vitamins A, C, and E, and essential minerals such as copper, calcium, and iron, lemons were used to fight off scurvy by sailors, just one of the remarkable benefits of this incredible fruit.
Avocado oil infused with basil
Basil is, of course, used to make pesto, but it can be used in a variety of dishes. It’s used a lot in Southeast Asian recipes, with the unique flavour coming from its high percentage of vitamin K (98% of your Daily Recommended Allowance!).
Our Avocado oil infused with basil brings the best flavours out of stir-fries, especially those with cashew nuts, eggplant, and peppers, giving these dishes a Thai influence.
Again, just a slight change in your cooking oil can make you a better cook!
Avocado oil infused with lime
Limes are an important ingredient in Mexican, Indian, Latin American and South-East Asian cookery, adding plenty of zesty flavour to cooking.
Similar to lemon, but with a stronger, more bitter taste, limes also aid in digestion due to the high concentration of flavonoids that help to break down the macromolecules in the food.
Perfect for salads, vegetables, fish and chicken, our avocado oil infused with lime gives any dish a special hint of Mediterranean-style cuisine. Simply delicious!
Avocado oil infused with chilli
Let’s end with something a little spicy!
Our chilli-infused avocado oil is sure to turn a good meal into a great one. Perfect for anyone who likes a little kick with their dinner, and even suitable for those who don’t like spicy food, chilli adds flavour to any meal.
And chillis are good for you too! They contain up to seven times the vitamin C level of an orange and have a range of health benefits, from helping digestion to relieving migraines. They’re also a good source of vitamins A and E, beta-carotene, folic acid and potassium.
If you enjoy making Mexican food, then this will convince your guests you’ve been on a Mexican cooking course!
