Cooking with Essential Oils

We had fun chatting about how to use essential oils in our culinary efforts! Also covered: WHY you might want to consider using oils instead of dried (or even fresh) herbs and spices, cost analysis, and other tidbits! Enjoy!

4-Ingredient Mayo Plus Ranch Dressing



MAYONNAISE
Put the following in a quart jar:
  • 1 cup extra light tasting olive oil (I've also used sunflower oil)
  • 1 farm fresh egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt 
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
RANCH DRESSING
Start with the same 4 ingredients listed for the Mayo! Then add the following to the jar:
  • 2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper (or a drop of YL Black Pepper Vitality Oil)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder (or use fresh garlic)
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder (or use fresh onion--I like green onions here)
  • 1 Tablespoon(ish) dried parsley (or a drop of YL Parsley Vitality Oil)
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
Use an immersion blender to emulsify mayonnaise/mix salad dressing. Refrigerate and enjoy!
