Roasted Fennel with Parmesan

December 15, 2016 Olive Oil Boutique

This dish makes a wonderful side for holiday dinners.  It's not only delicious & festive but it's quick & easy to make & can be prepared ahead to free your oven up for the main event, that big bird or roast! The original recipe was inspired by Giada di Laurentis but we've added our own spin!

These muffins are simply the best, most tender & moist blueberry muffins that I have ever had. The recipe comes from Daphna Rabinovitch's recently released cookbook "The Baker in Me" and Daphna has graciously given me permission to share it. While the original recipe calls for using butter I substituted EVOO with fantastic results. For more delicious recipes from "The Baker in Me" get the book here & while you're at it check out Daphna's Facebook page for "The Baker in Me" here

When rhubarb is in season this tasty tea cake is a great alternative to banana bread. The original recipe for this cake comes from Chatelaine magazine & can be found here.  In our recipe we used EVOO instead of vegetable oil.

This tuna sandwich uses no mayo but is probably one of the tastiest we've tried! Cannellini beans & evoo help to act as a binder & give it that extra health boost!

Tuscan Sausage, White Bean & Kale Soup

February 03, 2016 Olive Oil Boutique

This wonderfully hearty soup is actually best served the next day so if you have time, prepare the soup a day ahead & allow it to cool overnight.  When you are ready to serve it, bring it back to a boil & allow it to simmer for 5 minutes before serving. It's fantastic served with slices of good bread with melted gruyere cheese. Just drizzle the bread with good evoo & salt. Bake at 350 degrees until the bread is toasted (about 5 minutes). Top with grated cheese & broil for 2-3 minutes until cheese is melted. Serve alongside steaming bowls of the soup.
