I fucking hate this, at my school they had a "greek fest" and i tried some of this and it was terrible. They probably didnt make it with the best stuff but the taste of it almost made me vomit.
I always have a baguette and some olive oil on hand
i put paprika and a sprinkle of vegeta in mine.
My bro mixed garlic with olive oil and we ate it with a baguette, Gouda cheese, and tilapia fillets
Just had some of this with some damn good steaks seasoned with fresh time, lemon zest, and olive oil. The side dish was a few mushrooms with a slight glaze of balsamic vinegar. The steak dressing was made of olive oil, English mustard, sea salt, pepper and arugula.
I love to eat it with baguette bread,a sip of olive oil and oregano,i eat it Everytime i cook some italian food,Great stuff.
This sounds gross, the calories and fat, urrrrggghhhh
My family is greek, its a really common mediterannian dish. Tomatoes, chives, oregano and virgin olive oil. Perfect snack.
Also, I hate olives!
I hate olives too. I buy massive tubs of Olive Oil though.
Last time I had this it was actually pretty good.
There are ways of baking the olives in too.
I mix olive oil into my butter.
I still swear by this as a great little snack when I've got a good loaf of bread around.
Having an herb garden outside doesn't hurt either... Little bit of fresh rosemary, little bit of garlic, some shallot if you're feeling adventurous... Doesn't get much better.
I eat this whenever I can, it's quite good.
I had no idea that people had such strong reactions against olive oil, I guess I've been eating it for a long time, but when I was growing up I always hated olives for some reason. Definitely different for olive oil, not sure why. I used to eat this quite a bit but somehow forgot about it.
And someone earlier asked how olive oil was different from butter, oils are flexible fats whereas butter is solid, it takes more energy to break the bonds on butter, and thus is more difficult to transform to energy making it a bit easier to gain weight from.
gotta make some pesto with that olive oil
The town I live in is very "foody" as described my cousin, I found a really nice gourmet olive oil/balsamic vinegar shop that had some really exotic and very good stuff, bought a really nice bottle of olive oil and got some stuff to make a loaf of french bread. I usually just put fresh cracked pepper into my olive oils but there are some interesting things here that I'll have to try when I finally get around to making some bread.
Rosemary garlic bread and olive oil with cheese, pepper and paprika is equivalent to the age old bread and butter.
I always love a bit of baguette and olive oil with an Italian dinner. Always good.
delicious,i never ever eat ...what a pity.
Seriously, bread and olive oil is a great combination and a great snack food if you have people over, or if you're just in a snacking mood.
I spread the olive oil on the bread and toast it in the oven.
It's good as is, and it's great for sandwiches, especially pastrami.
I'm eating a piece of bread right now with a little bit of thyme and rosemary on it, and some cheap and fairly nasty supermarket olive oil, and it's godly. I'm thinking about going to the store tomorrow and getting a bottle of GOOD olive oil, a loaf of good bread, and trying this with better ingredients. Also, i have a little question, would saffron be a good thing to add as a spice to this? i found a little bottle of it that's nearly empty on the spice rack, just wanna make sure if it's for cooking only or if it can be eaten on something.
Tried this stuff few days ago. My new favourite kind of bread.
I remember when I was younger, we would go to my grandparents place and they would have really crusty ciabatta bread and we would dip the bread into the herbed oil that was used to cook our meal. My Grandmother called it 'Dippa dip'
This is quite interesting.. love my Italian food but when it came to bread, only really gone for the usual Italian bread, no olive oil. I'll have to try it.
Make Ciabatta. Fresh, warm Ciabatta and the aforementioned olive oil has no alternative.
It generally takes a bit of time to rise, but actual preparation and cooking time is pretty small considering the tastiness of it.
