Product of the Month - Basil Rapeseed Oil

rapeseed oil, basil rapeseed oil, flavoured rapeseed oil

This month our product of the month is basil oil. Its an easy choice for Summer as this flavoured rapeseed oil is so delicious with so many light and fresh summery dishes. 

One of our favourite ways to use this oil is with this super speedy pasta dish. A great meal to whip up if you have unexpected guests. This dish is a simple, healthy and fresh tasting and works great as a meal on its own or even better with the addition of fish or chicken. We think this would also work brilliantly at a barbecue. Below is the recipe so that you can have a go yourself. It literally takes 15 minutes, so give it a try tonight. 

Ingredients:

  • 250g wholemeal pasta
  • 3 table spoons of basil oil
  • A handful of pine nuts
  • A table spoon of green pesto.
  • 100g grated parmesan / or shredded mozzarella .

Method:

  • Cook the pasta as per the instructions given on the packet.
  • Once cooked, drain the pasta and toss through the rest of the ingredients.
  • Serve on its own or accompanied by fish or chicken. 

We also love this flavoured rapeseed oil as a dressing on salad and pizza. It also works brilliantly as a dipping oil with some beautifully handcrafted artisan bread. Perfect for any alfresco dining occasion this summer.
