Add Flavor To Dinner With Benissimo Mediterranean Garlic Oil + Giveaway

**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

The roots of Hongar Farms date back 450 years ago to a farm nestled in the Austrian Alps, just east of Salzburg. Only the highest quality herbs, spices, oils, vinegars, produce and meats were used in the kitchens of Hongar Farms, and they were carefully sourced to please regional royalty, wealthy traders, and landowners. While their roots date back many centuries, their current flavor-infused oils developed into today's flavors between the 19th and 20th centuries. These beloved, time-tested recipes are available in the Benissimo product line.


These products are 100% natural and contain up to 800 milligrams of omega-3 per serving. Producing a great tasting, healthy product is the company's highest priority, and their products contain no artificial flavors, colors, preservatives or cholesterol.


.Here are just a few of the ways we used the versatile Mediterranean Garlic Oil in the kitchen:

The oil was wonderful for pan searing chicken breasts.  We also used it to saute fresh onion and garlic for our red sauce:


The flavors of this oil really popped in our roasted tomato/onion/mushroom side dish:


We used it to saute baby bellas and were very pleased with the results:


It was also great straight from the bottle as a bread dip, plain or mixed with a little basil pesto.  

 If you are looking for a little inspiration, Hongar Farms provide natural, easy, and delicious recipe suggestions and seasonal cooking inspiration daily on their Facebook and Instagram pages.  They also suggest recipes and announce giveaways on Twitter, and provide a recipe collection available on their Pinterest page. Their flavor-infused oils can generally be substituted for traditional oil in recipes containing similar flavors. Some great ideas are to drizzle the flavored oils on pastas and soups, brush them on garlic toast, blend them into salad dressings and sauces, and use them to marinate and season roasted meats and vegetables. 

Hongar Farms products make great gifts for foodie friends, home cooks, and even aspiring cooks who might enjoy a beautiful bottle of oil for a little inspiration. The price at the online store is discounted ($4.99 per bottle, discounted from up to $8.99 retail), so this is the perfect place to buy a sampling of different flavors for home cooking enthusiasts or a variety of bottles to give individually as hostess gifts, teacher gifts, housewarming gifts or extra items to have on hand for last minute gifts. For those who prefer to shop locally, there is a list of stores that carry Benissimo products on their website under the "Shop Now" link.

Up the flavor ante in your kitchen this summer with Benissimo Oils!
