A light dinner solution with crunch and nutty flavor, this easy recipe for pecan-crusted tilapia can be made in less than 10 minutes. Serve with a side of roasted or steamed vegetables and a drizzle of your favorite extra virgin olive oil.
This pasta recipe is loaded with grilled seasonal vegetables in a no-tomato sauce base. (When it’s too chilly to roll out the grill, simply roast the vegetables instead of grilling them.) Just add extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, fresh basil, and a touch of Parmesan cheese. Tip: Try with whole grain pasta for an extra boost of fiber!
Cozy up with a hearty, satisfying recipe that’s made without the usual rich ingredients you’ll find in comfort foods. Our recipe for butternut squash and lentils is creamy, soothing, and made with just a few basic kitchen staples. It’s one recipe that shows vegetarian food can still be substantial.
We couldn’t get enough of Brussels Sprouts in 2012, and we created this recipe to highlight the versatility of this wonderful green veggie. Thinly sliced Brussels Sprouts are gently sautéed with ginger in extra virgin olive oil, then finished off with a splash of our true-cherry Black Cherry Balsamic Vinegar, chopped nuts, and a hint of spicy chives.
Whether breakfast, dessert, or a midday snack, these sautéed apples are spiced, sweet, and so scrumptious! Sliced apples are sautéed in our citrus-infused Clementine Olive Oil with warm winter spices. Finish this homey dish off with a dollop of crème fraiche or whipped cream for a hint of indulgence.
