Recipes with Canola Oil

We are slowly heading towards the colder months of the year. Winter is the time when our taste buds crave the luxury and comfort of a hot home cooked delicacy. But giving in to these temptations would also mean exposing our bodies to excessively damaging fats.

With Canola oil, we can indulge our taste buds without compromising on our health. Being rich in beneficial fats like plant based Omega-3 and Omega -6 fat, Canola makes for a heart-healthy oil. Moreover, its neutral taste and light textures makes it a suitable and beneficial ingredient, for almost every dish.

Why Canola Oil ?

  •    It’s healthy. Canola oil contains the least saturated fat – about half that of olive, soybean, corn and sunflower oils – and the most plant-based omega-3 fat of all common cooking oils. Canola oil has a qualified health claim for reducing the risk of heart disease* and research also shows it may help control blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes. With vegetable oil, you just don’t know.
    •    It’s neutral. Canola oil has no taste and a light texture (unlike olive or coconut oils), which is what you want when preparing a spicy Mexican feast, tart lemon cake or an herb-laced dressing. The flavors of your ingredients, not your oil, take center stage. Other oils have heavier textures than canola oil.
    •    It can take the heat. Broil, sear or even deep-fry to your heart’s content. Canola oil has one of the highest heat tolerances of any cooking oil (smoke point of 468° F), so it’s an ideal kitchen partner. Smoke points vary with the type of oil.
    •    It’s affordable. Canola oil costs about the same as vegetable oil, but canola is superior nutritionally with guaranteed performance.

The portal, canolainfo.org has a wide range of recipes of mouthwatering delicacies, from across the globe, made with Canola oil for the readers to try. Here is a list of some of these recipes which would be a perfect match for a cold winter day. These include savory meals like Creamy Mac and Cheese, Carrot cake, Vegetable Hot and Sour Soup, Shredded Chicken Tostadas with Spicy Tomato Salsa and Golden Pancake.
