Who doesn’t love a warm bowl of comforting oatmeal? Making homemade oatmeal is a great choice, because one can control exactly what goes in it and adjust according to their preferences. Fresh fruit is always a healthy and sweetening add-in to oatmeal. Try this easy recipe with diced pears and toasted walnuts… what a combo!
It’s summer and that means it’s picnic time! Instead of using mayo, like a classic tuna salad, @IWillNotEatOysters opted for our avocado oil because of its fruity, delicate flavor. She also used our garlic oil for the mustardy dressing, to add a perfect garlic flavor without the harshness from the fresh kind. Pack these sammies up in some parchment paper and throw them in a cooler to bring to the park! Grab a nice bag of chips or some fresh crudités and I'd call that a perfect summer picnic plan! Who’s coming!?
Confit can be anything. It aids whatever-the-thing-being-confited-is to retain its juiciness as it mellows in a soft, slow poach in oil. This tomato version is infinitely versatile!Add the confit to soups or sauces, spoon it atop eggs, legumes, over fish or chicken, onto toast, and more - and save the confit oil! It is a magical flavor booster. Use it to make vinaigrettes, add it to cook rice or beans, to sear fish - the list goes on. This is a smart recipe to save a bounty, and you two great things in one.
