I’m so very excited to be sharing this awesome giveaway with you today! When the folks at Mountain Rose Herbs contacted me and asked if I would be interested in trying a few items from their Epicurean Organics collection, I jumped at the chance.
But there was a slight problem…there’s no way I could choose! And after you take a peek at their amazing line of gourmet oils and spice blends, you’ll know exactly what I mean. Every single product looks so, so good!
Luckily for me, and now for you too, they sent me two bottles of oil and three different spice blends to try out!
So, what did we get? First, we got to try two of their fabulous oils. Avocado oil and macadamia nut oil. I’m seriously in love with both of them. Avocado oil has a strong flavor, rich green color, and is absolutely delicious with savory dishes. My favorite way to use it is a simple vegetable and quinoa saute (like this) and replace the olive oil with avocado. It brings a very unique, but lovely flavor to the dish.
If you’ve never seen it (and I hadn’t), macadamia nut oil is out of this world. It has a very mild, but decadent buttery flavor, and a beautiful golden hue. It is excellent with baked goods or as a finishing oil to fresh pasta dishes. I used it in my Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins and Chocolate Raspberry Waffles and honestly, if you bake with canola oil (which I don’t), once you try this macadamia nut oil, you’ll never look back. It makes your baked goods moist, tender and delicious!
And then there’s their spices. Oh the spices. The aromatic spice blends that add a depth of flavor to my dishes that is out of this world. I’m a huge fan of international cuisines which is one of the reasons I was excited about the blends they sent me. Each one gave me the chance to explore cuisines and play with new ingredients. The three different blends I tested were Caribbean, Thai Curry and Mediterranean.
The Caribbean was delightful mixed with oil and spread on fish as a marinade. The Thai curry blend was perfect with my go-to curry soup and the Mediterranean was just what my meatballs needed.
To say that I’m in love with Mountain Rose Herbs is an understatement. Their products are delicious, their mantra is pure and organic, and they’re an all around awesome company. I can’t wait to share these goodies with you!
