Delicious and versatile, Olive Oil, king of the Mediterranean diet
If there is a food that is very much ours and versatile, it is extra virgin olive oil. Healthy for frying or for making delicious raw dishes, such as gazpachos, salmorejos, salads…also, we encourage you to try them in the most unknown areas such as desserts, cocktails, ice creams or smoothies. In summer, the Mediterranean diet offers a rich range of possibilities that we encourage you to explore. With 10 varieties and 3 blends, the eco biodynamic EVOO Cortijo el Puerto multiplies the possibilities by giving those sweet, spicy, almond or bitter touches that will surprise the most demanding palates. Multiple rich nuances for each palate expanding the uses of extra virgin olive oils in a healthy and nutritious way.
For those who are more athletic… especially in summer, before starting physical exercise we must prepare our body by eating foods rich in antioxidants. Do you know that Cortijo el Puerto Biodynamic Eco EVOO is a source of natural antioxidants?
No pesticides or synthetic herbicides, we bet on natural biological control, on the farm, herds of black and white merino sheep graze and browse among the olive trees to eliminate weeds. The biodynamic agriculture from which these olives are result implies a philosophy of life: understanding the soils and the interactions of the ecosystem, producing food in a healthier way and with higher quality as well as long-term sustainability.
To speak of Cortijo el Puerto EVOO is to speak of Ecology and Innovation, Biodiversity and Quality, Green Economy and Environmental Sustainability. Recognized and positioned internationally in recent years, it is among the top three positions in the EVOO World Ranking, demonstrating that ecology is fully competitive.
But let’s go to those summer recipes…
We suggest you start with a starter of salmon and avocado with walnuts emulsified with our green coupage, a great way to face the day loaded with omegas and healthy fatty acids. Healthy and quality ingredients are for us the basis of a good dish.
Practically without cooking (the salmon is grilled) you have ready a delicious meal. To accompany it, an exquisite red pepper salad that we recommend accompanying with hojiblanca, if you are lovers of polyphenols and strong emotions, or with oliana, if you like mild flavors that leave an aftertaste of fresh grass.
and for dessert, we leave home….a “gastro-ice cream” made by Quique Sirvent, ice cream maker of Lora del Río, with our Arbosana variety Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
how about? has it whetted your appetite?
