Infused with real garlic flakes, Zucchi’s Garlic Flavored Olive Oil has a medium intensity with all the flavors of roasted garlic built-in. In other words, you get two ingredients with one (and none of the mess of chopping up and roasting garlic by hand!).

Ready to give it a try? Here are a few of our favorite dishes to pair with garlic olive oil.

Bread & Crostini

Ah yes, garlic bread. Does it get any better than that? With our Garlic Flavored Olive Oil, you can whip up a batch of homemade garlic bread or crostini simply by drizzling on a few drops of Garlic EVOO and toasting the bread in the oven, grill, or stovetop.

For homemade garlic bread, mix a little bit of garlic-flavored olive oil with Italian herbs, salt, and grated parmesan. Cut a fresh loaf of bread in half lengthwise and brush with the seasoned olive oil. Roast in the oven for 10-15 minutes, until the edges are golden brown.

To make crostini, check out our Cannelini Bean & Olive Tapenade Crostini and Whipped Ricotta Basil Crostini recipes.

Salad Dressings

While storebought is convenient, nothing beats the flavors of a homemade salad dressing. With flavored olive oils you can easily prepare your own dressing in fewer steps since much of the flavor is built right into the oil.

Instead of peeling and mincing fresh garlic, try using our garlic-flavored olive oil in your vinaigrettes. Our Farro Butternut Squash Salad & Pine Nut Raisin Garlic Vinaigrette is a great place to start. For a creamy alternative, head on over to our Avocado Garlic Salad Dressing recipe.

Marinating & Cooking Meats

Flavor your chicken, steak, and fish within by making a quick and simple marinade of garlic olive oil, salt, and pepper. Or, skip the marinade and head straight to the cooking by adding a little bit of garlic olive oil to the pan first, then searing your chicken, steak, or fish on both sides. The garlic olive oil will not only prevent your meats and fish from sticking to the pan but will also flavor them throughout.

We recommend trying this Skillet-Roasted Grape Chicken for a sweet and savory autumn main. Or, for a no-cook vegetarian option, try marinating feta or mozzarella with garlic olive oil and fresh herbs.

Roasted Potatoes

Simply toss your cut-up potatoes in a little bit of Zucchi garlic olive oil, salt, and pepper, and roast away until soft on the inside and crisp on the outside. Don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone you didn’t chop the garlic!

For a fancier potato dish, try our Garlic, Rosemary & Parmesan Hasselback Potatoes.


From Spaghetti Aglio, Olio, and Pepperoncino to Pasta with Walnut Sauce, there are countless pasta dishes that call for some combination of garlic and olive oil. The next time you go to make one of these recipes, simply combine the garlic and olive oil into a single step and drizzle in the garlic-flavored EVOO.
