Aioli
Chipotle-Lime Aioli
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup SOOC Chipotle Olive Oil
  • 2 large egg yolks at room temperature**
  • 2 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
Directions:
  1. In the bowl of a food processor or blender jar, add the egg yolks, salt, garlic and lime juice.  Process until well combined.
  2. VERY SLOWLY, drop by drop, begin to drizzle in the Chipotle Olive Oil while the machine is running. Extreme patience must be taken with this slow process, as too much olive oil poured in at once will cause the sauce to break.
  3. Once the olive oil is completely poured in and emulsified, remove the aioli to a sealed container and refrigerate.

**This recipe contains raw egg yolks.  If you have a compromised immune system, you can use pasteurized eggs for this recipe.

1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup sour cream

Hummus and chips
Ingredients:
  • 1-2 Jalapeno pepper, roasted & seeds removed
  • 1 1/2 Cups chickpeas (if using canned, drain & rinse)
  • 1/4 cup tahini (sesame paste)
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1/3 Cup SOOC olive oil (suggest either the Harissa or Chipotle Olive Oil)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons ice water
Directions:
To roast peppers: remove core and seeds from peppers and slice. Lay on a baking sheet and preheat the broiler in your oven. Place under the broiler skin-side up until skins are completely charred and black- this took about 10 minutes. Just check every 2 minutes or so. Immediately remove peppers from oven and using kitchen tongs, quickly place them in a Ziploc bag then seal it. Set aside for 20-30 minutes. Remove peppers from the bag and peel the skin off to discard. It is okay if a little bit of char remains as it adds to the flavor.
Add the chickpeas to the bowl of your food processor and blend until they are pureed. Add the tahini, honey and jalapeno, and blend until combined, scraping down the sides if needed. Stream in the olive oil with the processor running and continue to blend until the hummus is smooth. Add the salt and pepper, blend a bit more. With the processor running, stream in the ice water and blend until smooth. Serve with tortilla chips.

loafIngredients:

  • 4 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup potato flour
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt or kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon light amber honey or granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons + 3 tablespoons SOOC Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast

Directions:

If using a bread machine, add all of the liquid, honey/sugar, salt, and 3 tablespoons of olive oil to the pan.  Then add both flours, followed by the yeast last.  Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for your bread machine if you intend to bake it in the machine.

If using a stand mixer or mixing kneading by hand, mix and then knead the dough for about 6 minutes.  The dough should be very soft, but not sticky.  Add more flour, in small amounts as needed to keep the dough from sticking.  Allow to rise in a warm spot for about an hour.  Lightly punch the dough down, transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment and gently reshape in to a rustic loaf.  Cover the dough with plastic wrap lightly greased with olive oil.  Allow the dough to rise for 45 additional minutes

Preheat the oven to 375 and adjust the rack to the center of the oven.

Drizzle the loaf with two tablespoons of olive oil, and bake for about 40 minutes, until golden brown. Remove the loaf and immediately drizzle with remaining tablespoon of olive oil.  Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.  Best served warm!

One of our employees found this recipe on Pinterest, originally from http://www.bakerbettie.com and modified a few things. Of course we had to add some olive oil to it! This recipe is gluten free and vegan, too!

Ingredients:

– 2 1/2 cups gluten free rolled oatsDSC_0668-770x550
– 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (2-3 bananas)
– 1/2 cup peanut butter
– 1 tbs brown sugar
– 1 tbs honey
– 2 tbs SOOC Butter EVOO
– 1/2 tsp cinnamon
– 2 tsp baking powder
– Almond milk or water (if needed)
– 3/4 cup chocolate chips
– Rice flour to coat pan

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Pulse rolled oats in a food processor or blender until a flour-like consistency.
3. Combine the rest of the ingredients to the blender or mixing bowl, except the chocolate chips. Save one tablespoon of butter EVOO to grease the pan. Blend or mix until consistent and thick. Almond milk or water may be added if the mixture is too dry. The batter should be thick, but not crumbly!
4. Fold chocolate chips into the mixture.
5. Use the remaining tablespoon of butter EVOO to grease a 9×5 pan. Sprinkle rice flour into the pan and shake to coat the pan evenly. Dump out the remaining flour.
6. Pour the batter into the pan and spread evenly. Top with chocolate chips, if desired.
7. Bake for 30 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
You can also substitute SOOC Butter EVOO with SOOC Butternut squash seed oil for a richer flavor!
