Today we’re cooking with Pompeian Varietals Extra Virgin Olive Oil! The great thing about olive oil is that it is a very versatile cooking oil, which can be used in a variety of recipes, from seafood and other meats to pasta.  The new Pompeian Varietals Collection is a premium line of mono-varietal extra virgin olive oils.  These are made with only the highest quality of olives, and they come in three great varieties:

  • Arbequina – a mild-bodied extra virgin olive oil with a mature fruitiness and a delicate sweetness of almonds, great for vegetables and seafood.
  • Picholine – a medium-bodied extra virgin olive oil with a green fruitiness, hints of herbs and a pleasing balance of bitterness, great for meats and sauces.
  • Koroneiki – a full-bodied extra virgin olive oil with robust fruitiness and a sensation of fresh cut grass leading to a peppery finish, perfect for soups and salads.

Olive Oil

Typically I associate olive with salad dressings and the cooking of meats and pasta dishes, but it actually has a number of applications.  For example, have you ever made any desserts using olive oil?  I checked out the Pompeian website for a little recipe inspiration, and I was very happy to find some great desserts like Absolutely Outstanding Pound Cake, Banana Cake with Cinnamon Chocolate Swirls, Black Forrest Brownies, and even Chocolate Whoopie Pies!  It was great to find some of these traditional favorite recipes, made just a little bit healthier with the help of Pompeian Olive Oil.

As I set out to write today’s post, I wanted to make a recipe to showcase Pompeian Varietals, and I really wanted to make a dessert, as that is my favorite thing to share. But I also wanted to do something simple.  So I chose a fruit and yogurt parfait.  I was inspired to create this by an Apple Crisp recipe I found on the Pompeian website.  I just took their recipe for the “crisp”  and used it for the crumble and then layered it with yogurt, and some dried berries.
