Ten ideas to get you started
Use it as a green salad dressing. It's especially good over strong flavoured lettuces such as rocket or watercress. In Slovenia and Austria it is very popular to mix it with a vinegar. You can also use it with lemon, olive oil, or even soy sauce.
Pour it over other salads. It goes nicely on tomato, potato and bean salads.
Make a pesto with it. Blend some seeds, pour in oil, add salt, lemon, and your choice of spices. Use the pesto as a dip or a sauce for pastas and noodles.
Use it as a dipping sauce for bread as an alternative to olive oil.
Make bruschetta with olive oil, tomato, onions, mozarella and basil then drizzle Bucino oil over the top.
Add to a creamy pumpkin soup.
For an intense flavour, try it with dukkah or strong, mature cheeses.
Bake it in to breads, cakes and muffins or really get creative and use it in a panna cotta.
Blend it into a banana smoothie.
Mix it in with vanilla icecream. Go on, try it!
