How to cook with Flax Oil?
Flax Oil has a very low smoke point and because of this reason, it's not meant for cooking. So, most of the uses for this oil will be as a finishing oil for things like toasts, boiled vegetables, cooked meat, salad dressings, a bowl of soup, or even smoothies or shakes.
Omega Nutrition's Flax Oil has a mild, smooth, and crisp flavor which makes it easy to mix with ingredients like apple cider vinegar or balsamic vinegar if you’re looking for a bolder flavor.
Try swapping it out for olive oil in this recipe:
- 1 slice sourdough bread
- Omega Nutrition Flax Seed Oil
- 1/2 medium pitted and peeled avocado
- Freshly squeezed lemon juice to taste
- 4 to 5 tablespoons high-quality ricotta
- Micro greens or basil leaves for garnish
- Flaky sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Toast sourdough to desired level of doneness. Spread ricotta in dollops across the surface. Top with avocado (you can mash with a fork to cover entire surface or slice thinly). Squeeze lemon juice with drops of Flax Seed Oil and sprinkle with garnish of choice, sea salt, and pepper. Serve.
