Can I use olive oil instead of vegetable oil?
If your recipe calls for vegetable or canola oil, you should definitely substitute those oils with gourmet extra virgin olive oil. Any dessert recipe that calls for vegetable oil as an ingredient is a perfect choice for olive oil. In these recipes, the swap would be a one-to-one ratio.
What do you use vegetable oil for?
Vegetable oil and others like it (canola oil, grapeseed oil, and peanut oil) have a higher smoke point, making them a great fit for high-temperature cooking, like searing meat and vegetables. Their flavors are also less assertive and are a good use for making mayonnaise or popping popcorn.
Which is the healthiest cooking oil?
Nutrition and cooking experts agree that one of the most versatile and healthy oils to cook with and eat is olive oil, as long as it's extra virgin.
