Do any of you cook a lot? Well, if you do, this review and giveaway is sure to please. I recently was sent a bottle of the Bertolli Classico Olive Oil to try out with some recipes. I was happy about it because I use olive oil a lot with my grilling, sauteing, etc. Bertolli is a brand I use often and this new oil sounded like it would be a good fit for many recipes. Check out what I made below and then make sure to enter the giveaway:)
To try this out, I decided to make steamed broccoli with an olive oil drizzle. No, it was not just olive oil. But that is the main ingredient and I couldn't wait to see how it turned out. So I started the broccoli steaming, an excellent way to get the nutrients from your veggies, and then went ahead with making my drizzle.
I used the olive oil, garlic and lemon juice. I put it all together and sauteed it in my little skillet. I let it saute just until I could smell the garlic really heating up. You don't want to do it too long but just right. Once the sauce was done, only took about 5 minutes, I waited for the broccoli to finish steaming.
I have to tell you, the house was smelling wonderful right about now. I had an asian chicken in the oven and the sauce sitting on the stove. Delicious!!
So once the broccoli was done I mixed it all together. As you can see from the pictures, the sauce was just enough to coat everything but I think next time I will use less sauce and more broccoli. I don't like it soaked but just lightly spritzed on. Now on to the taste testing. Out of the four of us who tried it, three of us loved it. The flavor was mildly intoxicating and the fourth one didn't care for it because she doesn't really like lemon. Of course she also brought up maybe doing a garlic and herb oil drizzle next time.
I am already planning another tryout:) The oil was bright and bold and I liked how it went well with the other ingredients. I will definitely be using it again and in many more recipes. Maybe drizzled over some chicken breast or in my next linguine. Who knows what recipe I will add it to as it is so versatile!
Now, for those of you who enjoy cooking or you know someone who does and would use this oil, I am going to be giving away one bottle of the Bertolli Classico Olive Oil to one winner.
