Let’s face it; many kitchens worldwide always have a bottle of olive oil in stock. While it has many uses for cooking, flavoring, and even salad dressings, plus its extensive health benefits, it isn’t one of the most affordable options on the market, making you look for alternatives.
So, which cooking oils should you consider in place of olive oil?
This Vitamin E-packed oil is proven to reduce total cholesterol while giving any dish a flavorful touch. You can also use this for salad dressings, soups, and pasta.
This is excellent for cooking and with several baked goods. Also, when kept at room temperature, coconut oil is an excellent alternative to butter on toast.
The Omega-3-rich flaxseed oil may burn so quickly, but it still gives a flavorful touch to salads or a dish plating garnish.
This has the same versatility as olive oil but is now produced commercially with a cheaper price tag.
This is thicker than olive oil, so this is an alternative only for meat garnishing or salad dressing.
