I use a lot of infused oils some of my favorite to use in salads, dippings for bread and cooking in general. Infused oils are wonderful as it can add a lot of flavor to your cooking.
I am a cilantro fan and thought why not try making a cilantro oil.
To use as an accent for many of my Mexican food recipes.
Tthis is so easy to make.
2 cups of fresh cilantro
1 cup olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
I use almost all of the cilantro with the exception of the thicker ends of the stems. Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend till quite smooth. The mixture will be runny not like a paste. Place the mixture in a fine sieve and place the sieve over a glass container. If plastic it will probably stain your container. Sore in the refrigerator and will keep for about 2 weeks.
The above recipe makes about one third cup or so. But you do not need much because the flavor is quite intense.
Drizzle oil in a spicy tortilla soup, on carnitas for soft tacos, or maybe on a salad. Try making an infused oil yourself – you’ll be glad you did.
