  • Asparagus Gruyere Tart

    May 12, 2011

    Serves: 4
    Prep Time: 15 minutes
    Total Time: 45 minutes
    · Flour, for working with the dough and surface
    · 1 sheet frozen store bought puff pastry
    · 2 cups Gruyere cheese, grated
    · 1 ½ pounds medium asparagus
    · 1 tablespoon Lucero Manzanillo Olive Oil
    · Sea salt and freshly ground coarse black pepper
    1. Preheat oven to 400°F. On a flat floured surface, roll the puff pastry into a 16-by-10 inch rectangle. Trim off any uneven edges to shape a rectangle. Transfer puff pastry to a baking sheet. Lightly score pastry dough with a knife 1 inch from edges to outline a rectangle. With a fork, pierce dough inside the rectangle outline at ½ inch intervals. Bake pastry dough until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
    2. Remove pastry shell from oven, sprinkle with grated Gruyere. Trim the bottoms of asparagus spears to fit horizontally across pastry shell. Place asparagus in a single layer over cheese. Brush entire pastry shell and asparagus with Lucero Manzanillo Olive Oil. Season with sea salt and coarse pepper. Bake until asparagus is tender, 25 to 30 minutes.

  • The Best Chocolate Chip Olive Oil Cookies

    April 6, 2011

    Chocolate Chip Olive Oil Cookies

    Developed in the Edible Shasta-Butte “test kitchen” in honor of some of our best local ingredients.  Thanks Earl!

    3 ounces good dark chocolate

    ¾ cup Lucero Chocolate Olive Oil

    1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

    ½ cup granulated sugar

    2 eggs

    1 teaspoon vanilla

    1 ¼ cups whole wheat flour

    1 teaspoon baking soda

    1 teaspoon cinnamon

    ½ teaspoon salt

    3 cups rolled oats

    ¾ cup chopped walnuts

    Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly hammer the chocolate into large chunks. (This is most easily done with the chocolate still in the bar wrapper) Set aside. Beat together olive oil and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt, and then add to the olive oil mixture, stirring well. Stir in the oats along with the chocolate chunks and chopped walnuts. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet and then remove to a rack. Enjoy one while they are still hot! Makes about 4 dozen
