Recipes using B & B Farms Canola Oil

Bonnie’s Pie Crust

2 ¼ cups flour

1 t. salt

2/3 cup B&B Farms canola oil

¼ cup very cold water

Combine flour and salt. Mix well. Add canola oil and stir until resembles coarse meal. Add water. Stir until well moistened. Roll into two balls.

Roll out crust between two pieces of wax paper. Place bottom crust in pie plate. Add filling. Prick top crust with fork in several places before placing over filling. You may need to do some patching in places. I always pinch the edges to make it look pretty.

Dan’s Roasted Almonds

¼ cup granulated sugar

In medium bowl, toss the almonds with the canola oil until evenly coated. Sprinkle the sugar mixture over the almonds, then toss until well coated. Spread the almonds in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes. Serve warm or allow to cool and transfer to an airtight container. Makes 4 cups.

1 t. dried parsley flakes

Put canola oil in the bottom of large covered container. Add garlic and parsley. Stir until well mixed. Place bread in container, cover, and shake well until oil coats all the bread.

Beet hummus

1 roasted beet, about ¾ cup*

1 cup garbanzo beans, cooked and drained

3 – 6 cloves of garlic, pressed

¼ cup tahini (sesame paste)

2 teaspoons cumin

Juice of one freshly squeezed lemon

1 – 2 teaspoons of B & B Farms Canola Oil (to desired consistency)

¼ teaspoon sea salt

Blend beets, garlic, and garbanzos in food processor until smooth. Add tahini, lemon juice, cumin, and salt, then process again. Add canola oil, a little at a time, until you reach the right consistency for dipping. Serve with pita or tortilla chips or fresh vegetables.

To roast beets (I roast more than one, then save the rest in freezer containers) – Wash beets, cut off stem. Wrap in foil, leaving the beet wet so the steam keeps it moist. Roast for 45 to 70 minutes or until soft when poked with a fork. Remove from oven, cool, then cut in small chunks for processing.

Best Baked Potatoes Ever!

Several medium size potatoes

B & B Farms Canola Oil

garlic salt – coarse ground with parsley

Aluminum foil

Set oven temperature to 375 degrees. Tear foil in pieces large enough to cover potato. Poke potato with fork. Coat potato with oil by rubbing it on with your hands. Place in middle of foil, then spriinkle with garlic salt. Wrap potato in foil. Repeat until all are wrapped, then place in oven for 1 – 1.5 hours. Enjoy!

Added bonus is that the oil makes your hands incredibly soft.

If you have any leftovers, cut up potatoes and fry in B & B Farms Canola Oil. Makes a great batch of breakfast potatoes! (I always make enough so we have leftovers.)
