Red Pepper Pesto
Westfalia’s delicious range of avocado oils are healthy, versatile and a perfect substitute for any other cooking oil – especially if you’re swapping out seed oils on you LCHF lifestyle. It is suitable to use for a range of cooking methods and other uses, from frying, roasting and braaing to drizzling, dipping and even baking. The Plain Avocado Oil has a wonderful neutral flavour, without the taste of a fresh avo as many may think. The oils work equally well in a stir-fry or salad dressing, added to a marinade or poured over green veggies, like green beans, broccoli or spinach, and any meat, fish, chicken and seafood dishes.
Another benefit is the high smoke-point (up to 250 ˚C) of the oil. This means that the health structure of the oil remains intact, even when heated. With the stamp of approval from the Heart and Stroke Foundation of South Africa, you can be sure that it is one of the healthiest oils on the market. Westfalia Avocado Oils are certified Halaal and Kosher, suitable for vegetarians, and available in a variety of flavours. The flavours include Plain, Garlic, Lemon, Chilli, Basil, Herb and Butter.
Westfalia Avocado Oil is made exclusively from locally grown avocados and is proudly 100% South African.
