Using Amore Pastes
We’ve already mentioned several ways to use Amore pastes. Here’s a recap, plus a few more we like. To keep things interesting, we’ll often mix a couple pastes together. Once you have a few tubes, you’ll be a happier, more creative cook. Just squeeze!
- Canapés: Spread lightly on crostini as a base
- Compound Butter: Blend in for flavored butters
- Flavored Oils: using pastes
- Garlic Bread: It’s instant with the garlic flavor; add others like Pesto &
Hot Chile for fun
- Marinades: Add one or more flavors
- Mayonnaise: Mix in to make flavorful mayos for regular salads (tuna, egg,
chicken), dips, sandwiches and hors d’oeuvres
- Pasta and Rice: Add a dab and toss; Pesto makes instant pesto sauce with a bit more olive oil
- Pizza: Use as a base, to flavor tomato sauce (see below) or as a topping
- Rubs: Rub on meat before cooking (and before applying breadcrumbs)
- Salads: Mix into salad dressings
- Sauces: Stir into pan sauces
- Seasoning: Use saltier flavors in place of salt, for more flavor
- Soups, Stews & Stir-Frys: Add more flavor instantly
- Spreads: Mix into soft cheeses and other dairy products (cream cheese, goat cheese, mascarpone, sour cream, yogurt) to make colorful spreads
- Tomato Sauce: Spark your sauce with one or more flavors
- Vegetables: Toss with sautéed vegetables just before they’re done cooking
All this from one little tube of paste? It’s the best little multitasker in town.
