Two weeks ago we introduced Argania’s argan oil, where it comes from, and the fairness of it all. Since we know it’s a new concept for some of our culinary palates I have asked our friends over at Argania to share some ideas on how to use this flavorful oil.
Name: Argan oil made from kernels from Argan Trees (Argania spinosa L.)
Origins: Indigenous to Southern Morocco, these trees grow wild in semi-arid soil and have a deep root system protecting them from soil erosion.
Nutritional Value: Argan oil is rich in vitamin E, antioxidants and fatty acids. These properties are known to lower cholesterol, increase circulation and reduce high blood pressure.
Prep: Argan oil works fabulously as a finishing oil. Use it instead of olive oil in this roasted spring-garlic hummus recipe or drizzled on top of grilled veggies, or crostini. Try it in this delicious pine nut basil argan oil pesto or on a mixed greens salad with argan oil apple vinaigrette. Read More
