You love adding olive oil while stir-frying, roasting or tossing salads. However, you’re tempted sometimes to try out some other types of oil available in the supermarket. After all, it’s good to vary your options from time to time!
If you like creating exotic and tasty salads, then you’ll love creating with all the different oils available in the market. To change from your usual olive oil, you can try sesame oil. You only need a few drops when preparing a salad. If you want your sauce to have a subtler flavor, choose something like sunflower or canola oil that has a milder taste.
You can use coconut oil or any cooking vegetable oil when cooking, especially because of its mild taste and is available in a solid form. It’s perfect for cakes and for frying or sautéing in non-stick pots and pans and you can use it to cook over high heat without any problem.
And finally, if you need something with a little twist for your oriental dishes, then nothing beats sesame oil. Perfect for a vegetable stir fry with soya sauce!
Top tip: each type of oil has a different heat resistance. For example, never deep fry in olive oil but instead choose a highly resistant oil for that task such as sunflower or canola oil.
