The lovely people at Borderfields have sent me some of their infused rapeseed oils to try and giveaway to one of you guys. The pack contains 4 bottles of rapeseed oil with different infused flavours, including; basil, chilli, lemon and garlic. A wonderful gift idea for those who love to cook. Check out the giveaway at the bottom of this post!
Rapeseed oil has been hailed as the “British Olive Oil” and not only does it add a wonderful flavour, perfect for dressing salads and cooking but it also has a large range of health benefits. Compared to olive oil, rapeseed oil contains up to half the saturated fat – great for those wanting to lower their cholesterol, an impressive balance of omega 3, 6 and 9 and a great source of vitamin E.
I use infused oils quite a lot in my kitchen, particularly garlic. For the taste test, I tried the Borderfields Garlic Infused Rapeseed Oil with some bread (like a lazy person’s garlic bread) and loved it. Such a delicious, earthy flavour. I will also be using this oil to cook my roast potatoes this year – the great thing about using garlic infused oil instead of chopped garlic is that you don’t get those little burnt bits and the flavour is distributed more evenly. I also will be using the chilli and basil oils for drizzling on pasta and the lemon oil will be amazing on salads in the summer!
