    I got me some evoo the other day to help get some extra easy calories. The thing is though, what do i do with it? Do i add to pasta/rice when cooking? Or pasta sauce? Or do I add it cold when food is cooked?
    I eat scrambled eggs every day, should I replace butter with evoo?
    Sorry im not the brightest lol
    Thanks in advance


    A google tells me you probably mean Extra Virgin Olive Oil?

    As to how you use it - that would depend how expensive it was and how good it tastes. My missus is a bit of a foodie and we have a bottle of expensive olive oil and then a cheaper one too.

    We would use the expensive one sparingly on bread or possibly on salad or on pasta that didn't already have a strong sauce. I mean, with the good stuff - there is no point unless you can taste it. If you are cooking with olive oil, use a cheaper one since you won't notice any difference.

    You could try it with scrambled eggs but tbh - butter probably tastes better.

    If it is a good one, try dipping or spreading a bit on some nice bread instead of butter - tastes amazing.

    Thanks for the reply,
    I got a cheap one from morrisons but I will still try dipping some bread in it then. If bread goes well with it do you think you could use it on the outside of a toastie?
    I only buy the cheap pasta sauces so I will add it to that then, will have to go by trial and error though
