African Oils’ Extra Virgin Basil Olive Oil is made, using the traditional Italian “Agrumato” method whereby whole olives are crushed along with the freshest basil leaves. This method produces a rare, unique basil Olive oil which captures the full flavours of the olives and leaves in perfect balance. This formula was developed through craftsmanship and dedication, enabling us to produce the hearty natural goodness we are known for.

Size: 250ml

Here are a few ideas for using basil extra virgin olive oil:

  • Use it as a marinade for meats and fish. The basil flavour will infuse into the dish and add a nice depth of flavour.
  • Drizzle it over a salad for a flavourful dressing. It pairs well with tomatoes, mozzarella, and balsamic vinegar.
  • Use it as a finishing oil for pasta dishes. It adds a nice, fresh flavour to pasta with tomato or cream-based sauces.
  • Use it as a dip for bread. Simply pour a small amount of the oil into a dish and dip bread into it.
  • Use it to make a homemade pesto sauce. Simply blend basil leaves, Parmesan cheese, garlic, pine nuts, and basil extra virgin olive oil together in a food processor.
  • Use it in a recipe for homemade vinaigrette. Mix it with balsamic or apple cider vinegar, honey, mustard, and a pinch of salt and pepper.
