I love hummus and most recipes call for olive oil. I was wondering if anyone has used any other oils such as canola and how it turned out.
sort by best latest
The reason I ask is that I find oo has a waxy aftertaste that I find displeasing. I also thought canola was one of the better super market choices since it is high in monounsaturated fats?
it is ok for frying, i will not use it ,I use sunflower oil, but you should not eat it. Try sunflower oil it has almost no taste and is light
Canola = Canada Oil. Pure Garbage. Genetically Modified RAPE SEED oil. Works good as an industrial lubricant though.
i forgot about one other good one you might try avocado oil
Actually, organic or expeller- pressed coconut oil (not hydrogenated), is also excellent. It's health properties are similar to olive oil, only better. The expeller-pressed has little taste. The organic gives a Thai flavor to foods, raw or cooked.
