Bread Dipping Olive Oil (Similar to Bravo)

Bread Dipping Olive Oil (Similar to Bravo) created by januarybride

This is a recipe very similar to the bread dipping oil they give you at Bravo (an Italian chain restaurant in the USA). My hubby loves it. Serve with rosemary foccacia as they do at Bravo or with your favorite bread (I love french bread or sourdough bread with this). If you like things spicy, feel free to add some crushed red pepper.

ingredients

directions

  • Pour olive oil in a bowl and add sun dried tomato paste.
  • Pour basil, thyme, and rosemary into the palm of your hand and then crush the spices by rolling them in between your thumb and pointer finger. Add to the oil mixture.
  • Add the garlic and pepper (and salt if you are using it).
  • Using a fork, stir/mix the spices into the oil.
  • Allow to sit at room temp for about 4 hours for the flavors to start to blend if you have time. Otherwise, go ahead and serve it right away.

    Very nice oil. I added more of everything and sat it overnight, as suggested by others.

    We loved it! Our guests raved over it! I used plain tomato paste because I couldn't find any sun-dried and it turned out fine. Thank you for the recipe!

    I scaled this recipe down and used sourdough bread to dip. I ended up just placing the bread in the bowl and swirling it around to soak up every last drop! Yum! Thanks. Made for Zaar World Tour 2011 by a Food.Commando.

    We LOVED this recipe! It tastes fantastic and is so easy to make! I had never made a dipping oil with sundried tomato paste but it absolutely made this dish, so I was probably a bit generous with the paste! Mine sat for about 24 hours before being used. I'll make this very often! Made for ZWT7.

    When I first made this and tasted it I was not impressed. But after sitting for a few hours the flavors blended together and it was very good. I often substitute fresh rosemary for the dry and I always make it the day before now. Thanks for the recipe.
