Ways to use Olive Oil

Any cooking tips for ways to incorporate olive oil into common foods such as green beans, chicken, broccoli, and rice? How do you cook with it?

I think olive oil is DELICIOUS drizzled on cooked veggies. It is very flavorful. You can also get a Misto olive oil sprayer to use it as a cooking spray.

Maybe one of the greatest ways I like olive oil is to take a nice warm crusty piece of French bread and dip it in a little dish of olive oil, salt and Parmesan cheese. This is like a treat, not a super-healthy way to enjoy it. But everything can be enjoyed in moderation.

A caveat: it is high in calories, so measure it out. 1 TBSP = 120 calories.

I always broil my veggies...just enough so that they're still crunchy...what I do is.

put veggies in a baking pan
drizzle olive oil
sprinkle sea salt

broil until slightly cooked....this is extremely good with sweet potatoes.
