  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt

  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper

Provence Grilled Asparagus
Ingredients:
  • 2 lbs. jumbo asparagus

  • 2 Tbsp. Herbes de Provence Olive Oil

  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions:

Heat grill or a grill pan until medium hot. Snap off and discard the tough ends of the asparagus. Place asparagus in a bowl. Drizzle Herbes de Provence Olive Oil over asparagus; season with salt and pepper. Grill, turning every few minutes, until tender, about 12 minutes.

Garlic and Artichoke Pasta
Ingredients:
  • 4 oz. small uncooked seashell pasta

  • 2 1/2 Tbsp. Garlic Olive Oil

  • 3 Tbsp. butter (or use Butter Olive Oil)

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 1 sprig of fresh basil, chopped

  • 1 - 8 oz. can artichoke hearts, drained and quartered

Instructions:

Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add seashell pasta, cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente, and drain. Heat the olive oil and melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Mix in the garlic, basil, and artichoke hearts, and cook 5 minutes, until heated through. Toss with the cooked pasta to serve.

Garlic Roasted Artichokes
Ingredients:
  • 3 lemons, quartered

  • 4 large artichokes

  • 1/3 c. Garlic Olive Oil

  • sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Instructions:

Fill a large bowl with water. Squeeze the juice from the quarters of 1 lemon into the bowl. Working with 1 artichoke at a time, remove the tough outer leaves to expose the light yellow core. Peel the stem end of the artichoke, keeping about 1 inch of the stem intact and exposing the pale, tender core. Trim 1 inch off the top of the artichoke and cut the artichoke in half lengthwise through the center. Using the tip of a spoon, scoop out the furry choke. Add the cleaned artichoke halves to the lemon water. Keep the artichokes in the water until ready to cook; they may be stored in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 days. Just before cooking, spread the artichokes on paper towels, sliced side down, to drain and pat dry.
In a large sauté pan over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil until nearly smoking. Sprinkle the pan generously with salt and pepper. Carefully place the artichokes, sliced side down, in the pan, making sure they lie flat. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, shaking the pan occasionally to keep the artichokes from sticking, until they are evenly browned underneath, 6 to 10 minutes. Using tongs, lift 1 or 2 artichokes up to check for done-ness.
Add the quarters of 1 lemon to the pan, place a piece of foil over the pan and cover with a lid. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 5 minutes more. Remove the pan from the heat and keep covered. Let the artichokes cool to room temperature, 30 to 45 minutes.
Transfer the artichokes to a serving platter. Squeeze the juice from the cooked lemon wedges into the pan and whisk to scrape up any browned bits stuck to the pan bottom. Pour the juice over the artichokes, garnish with the remaining lemon quarters and serve.

Blood Orange Roasted Beets
Ingredients:
  • 4 beets, trimmed, leaving 1 inch of stems attached

  • 1/4 c. minced shallot

  • 2 Tbsp. minced fresh parsley

  • 4 Tbsp. Blood Orange Olive Oil

  • 1 Tbsp. Honey Ginger White Balsamic

  • 1 Tbsp. Traditional Balsamic Vinegar

  • sea salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Rinse beets, toss in 2 tablespoons Blood Orange Olive Oil. Wrap each beet individually in aluminum foil, and place onto a baking sheet. Bake beets in preheated oven until easily pierced with a fork, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Once done, remove from oven, and allow to cool until you can handle them. Peel beets, and cut into 1/4 inch slices. While the beets are roasting, whisk together shallot, parsley, remaining Blood Orange Olive Oil, and both Balsamic Vinegars in a bowl until blended; season to taste with salt and pepper, and set aside.

Cinnamon-Pear Balsamic Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Ingredients:
  • 4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and each cut lengthwise into 8 wedges

  • 1/3 c. Cinnamon-Pear Balsamic Vinegar

  • 2 Tbsp. Butter Olive Oil

  • 3/4 tsp. kosher salt or sea salt

Instructions:

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the bottom of a half sheet jelly-roll pan. Thoroughly shake or whisk together the Cinnamon-Pear Balsamic and Butter Olive Oil. In a large bowl toss to liberally coat the sweet potato wedges with the emulsified Balsamic Olive Oil mixture. Arrange the potato wedges on the parchment paper lined pan in a single layer, without over-crowding. Sprinkle with sea salt and roast for 45 minutes until tender and the balsamic glaze has caramelized.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Brush a 9 x 13 x 2 inch baking dish with Olive Oil. In a medium sauté pan, heat 2 tbsp of Olive Oil and cook the onions over medium-low heat for 8 to 10 minutes, until translucent. Add the garlic and cook for another minute. Spread the onion mixture on the bottom of the baking dish. Slice the potatoes, zucchini, and tomatoes in 1/4 inch thick slices. Place them alternately in the dish on top of the onions, as tight as possible in a single layer. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, thyme and
drizzle with 2 more tbsp of Olive Oil. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until the potatoes are tender. Uncover the dish, sprinkle the cheese on top, and bake for another 20 to 30 minutes, or until browned. Serve warm.
