Olive oil or vegetable?Watch
Google suggests olive generally but my mum says vegetable is better.
Anyone have some real clarity over it?
I'm a simpleton. Just cooking meats and eggs in the pan. Potentially some veggies. That's about it.
Low temp cooking (e.g light sauteeing, sweating etc): Olive oil
Don't worry about which is healthier if all you're using a reasonable quantity of it, the important thing is using the correct oil for the type of cooking you're doing at the time. Olive oil cannot handle high temperature cooking without tasting acrid, while veg or sunflower oil doesn't have the same pleasant taste as olive or rapeseed oil for preparing dressings or sauces.
