Olive Oil

Updated: Jan 2



Yes, OLIVE OIL! I’ve got the most amazing olive oil in stock here at the Vintique

and I’m using it for everything, literally- crackers, grissini (breadsticks) cookies,

and more. This tasty recipe with Gordallia Olive oil, one of the flavors of Laguna de Fuente de Piedra extra virgin olive oil, available at Lynnes

Add in the water and olive oil, mix thoroughly until the dough comes together into a ball. (Note that the dough may be sticky, but should come together after you knead it with tapioca floured fingers)

Grain-Free Italian Breadsticks (grissini)

These grain-free breadsticks are crunchy and so wonderfully full of flavor


Ingredients

  • 2 cups of almond meal (or almond flour)

  • 1/2 cup of tapioca flour (or arrowroot powder)

  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon of salt + extra for sprinkling

  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup of room temperature water (depends on how dry your dough is)

  • 2 tablespoon of olive oil + extra for coating

  • 2 tablespoons of sesame seeds for sprinkling (you could also use dried herbs, chia seeds or flax seeds)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 deg Fahrenheit (175 deg Cel)

  2. Line a large baking sheet with a silpat or baking paper

  3. Combine almond meal, tapioca flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Mix well.

  4. Add in the water and olive oil, mix thoroughly until the dough comes together into a ball. (Note that the dough may be sticky, but should come together after you knead it with tapioca floured fingers)

  5. Divide the dough evenly into 18 portions, and using olive oil-greased hands, roll each portion of dough on a piece of silpat of a greased counter to make 12-inch long breadsticks

  6. Place the breadsticks on the silpat-lined baking tray (leaving 1/2 inch apart between each)

  7. Brush the breadsticks lightly with olive oil, and sprinkle with sesame seeds (or whatever topping you like)

  8. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until crispy and slightly golden brown.

  9. Remove and let cool for 10 minutes.

  10. Serve with cream cheese or your favorite dipping sauce

It’s here at the vintique! *From Spain! *Laguna de Fuente de Piedra Extra Virgin Olive! mY RECIPES ARE Featuring THEIR GORDELLIA cold pressed olive oil. ITS AN exceptional olive oil MADE from early olive fruits. tHE OILS ARE harvested and cold pressed, by 7 generations of the Lopez-Montero family!!!. REVIEW: Dearest Lynne, The olive oil is delicious - such a hearty taste, with a beautiful bitterness and a viscosity that allows the taste to linger and be cherished. I tried it this late morning with beautiful lettuce leaves (Jessy discovered a company called Gotham Greens and we have been enjoying their lettuce mixes). Olive oil is on my beneficial list of foods I need to eat for inflammation control and with me not having a sweet tooth at all, this olive oil tastes even more magnificent. Thank you so much for this recommendation - just superb.
