Can you substitute olive oil for vegetable oil for cooking?
A qualified YES, if you are cooking vegetables, meat etc - things that the taste of olive oil won't interfere with.
However, in sweets - cakes etc. the taste of the olive oil is too overpowering, so I wouldn't recommend it.

Any cooking oils can be used in place of Canola oil, without any noticeable difference.
Yes, you can substitute olive oil for vegetable oil, but not for all dishes. Olive oil has a strong taste. You would probably not want to use olive oil in most Indian cooking and definitely not in baking. Make sure that the taste of olive oil is compatible with your other ingredients.
You can substitute vegetable oil for olive oil. With veg oil, you won't get the desired taste you may be lookingfor such as salad dressing or garlic and peppers with bread. Also veg. oil will break down much faster if using it for frying.Olive oil will heat at a higher temp without burning.
Olive Oil Brawl . Yes, you absolutely can -- it will taste the same. . Actually, you can NOT substitute olive oil; they'll taste TERRIBLE. Trust me, I've tried it :( .
I personally substitute vegetable oil with canola oil. It is low in saturated fat and healthier for you. Some canola oils also contain omega 3, which many doctors recommend to their patients. *** Any other oil, corn, canola , olive , can be used as a substitute.( Even melted margarine or butter wi…th limits) . Its mostly the flavor the fat brings to the dish or recipe that will be the difference. I'm over simplifying , but with out more info as to what you are preparing .. that's about it. Another good substitute for vegetable oil is apple sauce. It is healthier, but it does surprisingly taste very good and as it would with the oil. We didn't have any types of oil, and I found that apple sauce answer on yahoo answers. Cool! (: Enjoy... (MORE)
Yes indeed. The taste may be a little more nutty though but in pancakes and waffles its fine.
Olive oil is made from Olives. Vegetable oil is made from Canola (formally called Rape but the marketing boys changed its name.)
Yes canola oil is a type of cooking oil, there is a slight taste difference but your not likely to notice that in the final product.
To replace one cup of margarine one may use 1 cup shortening plus 1/2 teaspoon salt OR 1 cup butter OR 7/8 cup vegetable oil plus 1/2 teaspoon salt OR 7/8 cup lard plus 1/2 teaspoon salt.
No, you can't. But if a recipe calls for vegetable oil, you can substitute it for Canola Oil.
Yes, many Italian cakes call for olive oil. The best type would be plain olive oil, not extra virgin because it will have a milder taste.
Never heard of that one. A common substitute though is Apple Sauce. Replace apple sauce for the vegetable oil and you will get a much moister cake. The proof is in the taste ... try it, you'll like it.. You can definitely do it however: I'm eating a piece of cake made with it right now!
You could ... but it would taste really weird. Olive oil has a strong flavor (of olives) that does not go well with sweet flavors. Think sphagetti sauce.
It depends on what the oil was for. If it is a recipe, especially for baking, you can use butter as substitute for oil. It is not recommended to substitute butter to fry something because it tends to burn in a hot pan, you should use oil to fry. Yes is can! Just don't use as much oil as butter. B…utter is thicker than oil so don't make it too sloppy. (MORE)
Only in meat or vegetable recipes. You wouldn't use it to fry eggs or make pastry.
not for creaming sugar or for making a laminated dough. In general vegetable shortenings aren't that healthy and should be replaced by butter.
You can use them interchangably, particularly canola oil. There may be a slight change in flavor, particularly when using olive oil.
The term "vegetable oil" is generic--it encompasses all oils derived from plant sources, including olive oil. However, products labeled "vegetable oil" for cooking are typically blends containing canola, palm, soybean, sunflower, safflower, corn or cottonseed oils. Such vegetable oil blends typicall…y have less flavor than olive oil, but they have a higher smoke point, so they are better for frying. (MORE)
There is less flavor to your ingredient if you use vegetable oil for a substitute, but definitely works. The texture of what your making will come out the same with vegetable as in olive oil.
Yes, but be aware that olive oil has flavors that most vegetable oils don't have. You are likely to have a touch of olive flavor in your pancakes!
I have found that a good substitute for Olive Oil is butter. Also vegetable oil works well. It depends on the recipe you are using.
Your best guess is to subsiitute in another form of an oil, like canola oil or corn oil, for example.
I have substituted olive oil (evoo) for vegetable oil and never had a problem. Not sure if you should but I have with no problem. I use the same amount as I would with vegetable oil.
Yes. Your cornbread will probably taste better if you don't use olive oil. Olive oil is probably too fragrant and strong to put in a cornbread.
Olive oil will burn at low;er temperature than vegetable oil, andit will alter the flavor, but it would work in a pinch. YA GURL AK WAS HERE :) ALSO.. OLIVE OIL IS GROSS.
You can try canola oil, instead of vegetable oil. That would probably be your best bet.
Any neutral-tasting oil can be substituted; canola oil, soybean oil, corn oil, etc. If you want a richer taste (and more saturated fat), you can try clarified butter (ghee), depending on the dish.
yes it can be substituted, you might want to use a little LESS of the olive oil, as it is heavier and has a stronger taste.
Yes, you could, but it would give it a definitely different taste. Actually, you can substitute unsweetened applesauce for oil amounts in most recipes except cookies, pie crusts or any type of pastry dough.
You can always do this. Extra Virgin Olive Oil is very expensive. Vegetable Oil is a cheap substitute of lower quality.
Yes chemically the oil will work great and the recipe will succeed; but the oil might have a taste that is slightly different and the result could taste differently.
yes it wont make a difference ................................ There will be a difference in flavor. Olive oil has a distinctive olive flavor, mild to strong depending on the grade of oil, which will be noticeable in the finished dish. Vegetable oil typically is neutral in flavor.
Yes, to some extent. The taste of olive oil will be noticeable in the final product, so olive oil can only be used in products where that taste will be acceptable. Olive oil also has a lower smoke point than other oils, so it is not appropriate for frying at high temperatures.
yes you can but it completely changes and disrupts the taste of the dressing another response: Yes, but you need to consider the flavor of the salad dressing. Olive oil has a distinctive flavor, so if you use a different oil, your salad dressing will be less flavorful. Another response: The… health considerations of olive oil, vs vegetable oil are also to be considered. Olive oil is much healthier than vegetable oil. (MORE)
Sometimes. If you plan to fry with it it should work. You can't make salad dressings with margarine but olive oil is usually used for dressing. So it won't always work.
any other oil will be fine ; so like canola oil, rice oil, peanut ect. you can also use margerine or butter. hope that helped
Will the olive oil flavor be noticed in the cupcake? In a white or yellow cake it might. If there is any other flavor in the cake, probably not.
No, olive oil has a distinctive flavor and should not be used in cookies - try corn oil, canola oil possibly, but not olive oil.
No, both are entirely different by nature. And both gives completely different taste, smell, flavour when applied in any dish or preparation. For example take the case of mayonnaise. which if prepared by olive oil tasted great. but tastes funny and odourful if prepared with coconut oil. same way, ta…king the case of any Indian dish. In the flavour and aroma of any Indian dish, coconut oil has a major role to play. You can't achieve that taste with olive oil or any other oil. hope the answer is clear. if not call or mail me Deepu, 971-055-9593259 email@example.com (MORE)
Yes, you can substitute any oil for another oil however it does change the taste a little of what ever you are making.
Yes. It may give it a slightly different flavor, but it will certainly work all right.
Not chemically. Soy sauce can be substituted for salt in many recipes, but it does not contain the fats of butter or oil, which are often necessary for building textures or other chemical changes in the recipe.
"Cooking oil" is actually a broad term for purified fat derived from plants which is normally liquid at room temperature. "Vegetable oil," when used to label a cooking oil product may refer to a specific oil like rapeseed oil or to a blend of different oils. Not all vegetable oils are edible - some …are useful only as fuel oils. Not all cooking oils are vegetable oils - for example there are several nut oils and oils from gourds and melons that can be used in cooking. The non-vegetable cooking oils are seldom used in baking, so for the purposes of baking, the terms cooking oil and vegetable oil are pretty much interchangeable. Any recipe that calls for one can use the other interchangeably with the caveat that some oils are lower fat than others and some of them are more tolerant to heat than others. Olive oil can be substituted for cooking oil, but it changes the flavor a little bit. (MORE)
I have used olive oil to get rid of head lice. Instead of using the typical pesticides, I slathered on some olive oil and let it sit for 20-30 minutes. Then using a fine tooth comb to get rid of the lice and nits. Shampoo the oil out of the hair. It may take a couple of latherings. Hair will be supe…r soft. Repeat the process in a couple of weeks just to make sure the critters are not returning. The oil smothers the lice and makes the nits easy to remove. (MORE)

It's not a great substitution for stir fries, primarily because olive oil has a lower smoking point than vegetable oil, meaning it will begin smoking a lot before the pan would be as hot as you'd require it to be for a stir fry. The second reason is that olive oil has a distinctive taste which is pr…evalent in Mediterranean food, but never in Asian food. (MORE)
depends what you want it to turn out like. you can put anything in anything but no saying it would taste good. hope i helped :)
If the idea of chocolate-covered olives sends you into paroxysms of delight, by all means go ahead and use olive oil. Please label these sinister things, though, so that normal humans know to avoid them. I suggest "sediment of foul evil", though "olive oil brownies" is probably sufficient.
Yes, you can substitute any cooking oil in baking, as long as it isn't flavored.
It depends on the recipe. If the recipe requires a large proportion of vegetable oil and you're hoping to substitute it with coconut oil it is not a good idea since coconut oil has a distinctive taste which will overpower the whole dish. Generally, it is a good idea to substitute vegetable oil with …something like canola oil since it has no taste rather than coconut oil. (MORE)
