Our cold-pressed Basil Oil is heady & fresh, the perfect partner to any seafood, tomatoes, salads, pizza, pasta & more.
Make a simple dressing with a touch of balsamic or lemon juice and drizzle over anything for an incredible herby kick! It’s great on bruschetta or caprese and makes a great base for pesto if you’re running short on fresh basil! Because this is a cold-pressed, extra virgin rapeseed oil it’s beautiful on it’s own as a dressing or for cooking.
When tomato-based sauces are too heavy, drizzle this over cooked pasta & top off with a few toasted breadcrumbs for a deliciously light alternative.
Try adding a dash into a home-made mayonnaise for a delicious twist! We use a gorgeous, single-estate British rapeseed oil that’s cold-pressed, so it’s as good drizzled on salads as it is for cooking with.
Apart from supporting British farmers, we find the infusions taste ‘cleaner’ and are more defined using rapeseed oil. As well as having half the saturated fat than olive oil, rapeseed oil gets hotter before reaching its smoking point so it’s easier to get things crispy, like roast potatoes, with less effort.
