    Bread dipping oil/spices

    Sun Jan 30, 2005 5:01 pm Groupie
    I can only find a few recipes on Zaar for bread dipping oil. I had some at my mom's this past weekend using a 4-sectioned canister of storebought spices (similar to this) that was really delicious, but I'd really like to make it myself. I tried an internet recipe that was pretty good but not as good as the storebought stuff.

    Any recommendations? I make french bread to use with the oil.

    I've never seen this or a similar product and it does look interesting. I generally just use a very fruity olive oil, although sometimes I'll pour into the dipping dish some balsamic vinegar. I think you will need to experiment with the ingredients shown for the various flavors. One suggestion is to make some flavored oils as your base -- you might want to try steeping the herbs in olive oil for a week or so (dry herbs can stay on the counter, fresh need to stay in the fridge - rosemary, basil, thyme) and then stir in the other ingredients just prior to serving- finely minced sundried tomato, parmesan cheese, etc. This sounds like quite a lot of fun.

    I think I've seen one like it at Bed, Bath & Beyond, or Target, or somewhere..... maybe I'll just buy one next time I see it. They really were good; better than I expected to be honest.

    I posted this recipe: Parmesan Dipping Seasoning for Bread
    For Zewbiedoo... =) This is an effort to copycat an excellent mixture of spices found in a commercial mixture. It\'s not exact but it\'s pretty close.

    I just posted a recipe you might want to try, I'll copy it below as it hasn't posted yet. It's different than most dipping oils, as it doesn't have alot of spices. It's very simple, yet very delicious! icon_biggrin.gif

    Italian Dipping Oil (for Bread)
    I love the dipping oil served at my two favorite Italian restaurants. Both restaurants vary slightly in ingredients. Here is my version that brings the best of both worlds. Serve with warm bread fresh out of the oven and enjoy!

    Time to Make: 10 minutes preparation; 0 minutes cooking

    Yield: 4 servings
    Nutritional analysis will be done on: 1 serving

    Categories: Appetizers, Dips, Italian, Simple, Beginner Cook, 3 or Less Steps, Dinner Party, Vegetarian

    1/2 cup olive oil
    1/4 cup fresh basil, washed, dried and chopped
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    1/8 teaspoon black pepper

    1. Pour olive oil into a shallow bowl.
    2. Add basil, garlic and pepper.
    3. Stir with a spoon to evenly distribute ingredients.
    4. Serve with warm bread.
    5. ~NOTE~ Use a good quality olive oil and fresh basil and garlic for best results.
    6. More garlic can be added if desired.

    I just mix olive oil, minced garlic, fresh parsley, red pepper flakes, some montreal steak seasoning and just before serving it add freshly grated parm cheese. I didn't post it because I never measure I just throw it all together. I love dipping oil and bread.

    Sounds great! Do post if you can even guess at the measurements! I'd love to add it to my cookbook.

    500 grs sesames , roasted and ground
    250 grs whole coriandre , roasted and ground
    125grs de cumin powder

    Originally it's is with Pita or Egyptian Flat breat, but since
    I lived in Europe I tried it with all different kind of bread and it works perfectly well specially with Foccacia . If you like, you may add a little of ground almonds or nuts if you like but I prefer the simple version Enjoy!
