Can I use canola oil to make hummus?
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.
You can use canola oil, but the flavor won't be as good. Canola is pretty tasteless.
If you don't want to use oil at all, you can use tahini (sesame butter) which has some sesame oil in it.
nothing matches olive oil for heath or taste. you should never eat soy, canola and many other oils. Stick with oo its worth the difference even if you have to buy cheaper ones
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.
Why would you want to it's made from Genetically Modified RAPE SEED. It's pure garbage. There is not such thing as a "Canola Plant".
Canola Oil however does work great in your paper shredder to keep it lubricated and working properly.
I am a nutritionist as well as a self-proclaimed health nut. Bottom line is if you're going to make hummus please please please use olive oil if you can't afford the extra virgin olive oil any kind of olive oil would be great and you must use fresh garlic you can incorporate some powder and some other forms of garlic but you have to have some fresh garlic and make sure you add some fresh lemon juice and then of course your tahini butter and then whatever. My mother and I have just eaten some hummus from the store tribebrand will usually get Sahara and why we're watching Anthony Bourdain eating fresh foodt from Singapore and what a disappointment with a canola oil. You're also not going to get the health benefits from the canola oil the whole point of eating hummus is for the health benefits. Plus it tastes amazing. I hope this helps. Sincerely dr. Carla polins
