Our Favorite Superfood Recipes

By now you must have heard people talking about the virtues of superfoods, but do you know how to prepare them? We have chosen a few of the most versatile superfoods to combine with Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain, a double dose of health benefits! Continue reading to discover the benefits of these foods and learn about ways to enjoy them.

Whole-wheat toast with eggs fried in EVOO with asparagus 

Asparagus are full of Vitamin K, which is important for strong bones and to prevent blood clots, while eggs are a source of omega-3 fatty acids, a key ingredient to our health. Of course, Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain is also high in omega-3 fatty acids and it’s the secret ingredient to tying together this supermeal!

Remember to use our frying technique: add Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain to the pan, wait until the oil is hot, then add the egg. Using a spoon, drizzle the Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain over the egg and remove it from the pan once it is cooked to your preference. We recommend leaving the edges crispy and the center runny. Then, sauté the asparagus in Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain until they turn bright green. Top the warm whole-wheat toast with the egg and asparagus, and enjoy your superfood meal!

Grilled salmon with broccoli 

Salmon and Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain have more in common than you’d think: both help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, thanks to their high omega-3 fatty acid content. Plus the healthy fats in these foods reduce your bad cholesterol levels, another heart-healthy benefit. We recommend our Grilled salmon with EVOO recipe served together with broccoli sautéed in Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain. Sprinkle with some salt and serve with lemon: viola!

Kale chips and Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain

Kale is packed with antioxidants and high in Vitamin C and beta-carotene. As with other superfoods, it has a lot in common with Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spainl. Like EVOO, it can help improve prognosis in cancer patients, and helps prevent cardiovascular disease and the likelihood of developing Alzheimer’s. Our favorite way to combine these two superfoods is by making crunchy kale chips! Preheat the oven to 350 ºF, wash and dry the kale, cut it into large pieces and toss it with generous amounts of Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain. Season as desired – we like adding some salt. Place the kale on a tray and bake for 15-20 minutes, checking how it looks from time to time. Once the kale is crunchy, remove it from the oven and enjoy!
