Frizzled spring onion dip from Anna Jones

Frizzled spring onion dip from Anna Jones

Homemade dips are so underrated. They are usually super easy to put together and they add SO MUCH flavour to your weekday meals. 

Give this one a go and we promise—you’ll be making it on repeat.

It’s take on the traditionally Chinese spring onion oil, but with a hit of chilli and turmeric, sitting on top of a thick lime yoghurt. 

It comes from the delicious mind of Anna Jones and her new cookbook “Easy Wins” where she delves into 12 flavour hits such as mustard, lemon and, obviously, EVOO!

So this recipe you want to make sure you are choosing the right *extra*. If you’d like to ramp up the pepperiness, go for vibrant oils like a new harvest Croatian or Spanish. And for those buttery, rounded aromas, choose a Greek oil.

    Here's the method:

    Serves 4

    • Trim and then thinly slice both the white and green parts of 1 bunch of spring onions.
    • Then pop them in a small pan with olive oil and chilli flakes and cook over low-medium heat until you can hear everything begin to sizzle.
    • When the edges of the spring onions are beginning to brown and crisp, add sugar and turmeric and cook for another minute.
    • Take the pan off the heat and allow the oil to cool in the pan. Once cool, season with salt and pepper.
    • Mix the strained Greek yoghurt with the juice and zest of 2 limes, season well with sea salt, then put into a shallow bowl or on a plate.
    • Finally, swirl in the oil and serve with warm bread or raw veg for dipping.

    Introducing a small-batch EVOO from Northern Portugal

    It seems like everyone in the olive oil world knows Marije. Ambitious, but decidedly artisan, she represents a new wave of olive oil producers who are increasingly improving the whole industry while keeping it small. This is a story about friends. In the early days of our olive oil adventures, we stumbled around Portugal meeting some of the most exciting women coming up in the space. That led us to Ana, our second producer ever and one who makes multi-award winning, high-polyphenolic extra vi...

    Meet Ana: our olive oil producer from Alentejo, Portugal

    Meeting this producer actually changed the course of our business. She became the goal of what an “ideal” producer looked like and established a level of quality that’s truly a rare find in the olive oil industry. As we turn down the roads to get to the farm, the path turns from pavement to dirt. This was our very first “sourcing” trip, after only having worked with our close family friends in Greece. We didn’t really know what to expect or what we were getting into.... But nevertheless, we t...
