I was recently invited to enjoy a “flight” of new (to me) avocado oil: AVOCARE Extra Virgin Avocado Oil.

AVOCARE Avocado Oil

I have been an avocado oil fan for years, after first being introduced to it when I completed the Intensive Study Program at The Christina Pirello School of Natural Cooking and Integrative Health Studies four years ago. In addition to holding up to a high smoke point,

I love it as an alternative to extra virgin olive oil in salads and other cold vegetable dishes, as well as in baking. So I jumped on the chance to sample this “flight” of flavors.

Four AVOCARE Avocado Oil Flavors

I’ve used the garlic in tofu marinades and the chipotle is divine tossed with roughly chopped raw vegetables.

But today I want to show you two delicious things we did with the original and basil flavor: vegan Caesar dressing and basil bread!

This bread is wonderful for sandwiches. But it’s awfully good as toast, too.

Simply drizzle a little avocado oil with basil over toast, sprinkle with nutritional yeast and garnish with Italian herbs.

I’m a big fan of this oil and the variety of flavors!
