Ingredients

USMetric
  • 1 cup 225 ml fresh parsley or fresh coriander or fresh mint or fresh basil
  • 1 1 lemon, the zest
  • 1 cup 225 ml olive oil
  • 2 2 garlic clove, pressedgarlic cloves, pressed
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

Instructions are for 6 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Chop the herbs into rough pieces and place in a deep bowl. It's nice to use a combination of two or more herbs; go with your favorites.
  2. Rinse the lemon and grate off the zest with a fine grater. Be careful to remove only the yellow zest, leaving the white part of the peel intact. Add the zest to the herbs. Add the other ingredients.
  3. Blend with an immersion blender for approximately 30-60 seconds. Don't over-blend; too much processing can give the olive oil a bitter aftertaste.

Tip!

Although classically served atop Osso Bucco and other braised meats, don’t stop there. This oil compliments veggies of all sorts. And if you add some lemon juice or vinegar, it transforms into a delicious salad dressing or marinade.

    Canola oil? It is not real food.

    Could you please explain using canola oil in this recipe?
    I see controversial information on your website. In your article "How To Help Transition Your Children To Low-Carb Real Food" you wrote "Much of the oils used are highly processed seed oils such as canola oil or sunflower oil. Seed oils are inflammatory and easily oxidised causing inflammation within our body. Many modern diseases stem from the inflammation within us caused by the food we eat."
