Ingredients chive oil

  • 200 g chives

Preparation chive oil

Mix everything together in the Thermomix for 8 mins. at 50°C on the highest setting. Drain through a Superbag or cloth. Separate the oil from the liquid. CHEF'S TIP: A piping bag is good for this. Suspend the bag with the oil and, after a while, the unwanted liquid settles at the bottom. Then all you have to do is cut a small hole in the bottom and carefully release the liquid.
