7 Top Chefs' Recipes Using Rapeseed Oil

10th May 2017

Try these delicious recipes from top chefs who’ve embraced rapeseed oil in their recipes. Not surprising – as rapeseed oil has many benefits, such as its flavour and nutritional properties. Rapeseed oil has an incredibly delicate flavour and is light, non-greasy in texture.  This makes it an excellent carrier, allowing flavours of other ingredients in a dish to shine through. We’ve put together a list of seven recipes from some top chefs:

Nigella, Chicken Traybake with Bitter Orange and Fennel

This roast chicken dish from Nigella is wonderfully fragrant, delicious and simple to make. Serve with some crispy roast potatoes and some spring greens for a meal that’s sure to impress.

Raymond Blanc, Bruno Loubet’s Bean and Veg Chilli

This tasty chilli recipe is a one-pot wonder – simple and delicious – sure to become a new family favourite. Serve with brown basmati rice for added texture and flavour, and a dollop of natural yogurt if you prefer your chilli a little less spicy.

Crispy, spicy chicken pairs brilliantly with earthy, salty noodles in this speedy stir-fry dish from Ching-He Huang.
