To make sure that you are able to derive these health benefits to the fullest in your daily life, here are a few recipes made using olive pomace oil. Have a look.

 

The basic mayonnaise

Now who doesn't like a good rich mayo? Of course, we have gotten used to the store-bought kind, but trust us, making one equally delicious, if not better, is not all that hard. Here is all you have got to do!/



Ingredients:

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice, preferably fresh

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • 1 cup pomace olive oil

  • Salt to taste

 

Method

 

  • For the basic method you need to have either. A hand blender or a food processor

  • Place all the ingredients in a tall jar, and let them get settled for sometime

  • Now using the hand blender, start blending.

  • After sometime, you will start to see mayo forming and this is when you need to create tension by gently moving the blender up and down.

  • Stop doing this when the oil is beautifully emulsified in the mayo and it forms a nice and thick consistency.

  • Adjust the salt if needed and store in an airtight jar in the refrigerator.

  • Stuffed bell peppers the Indian way
