Can you substitute olive oil for vegetable oil when cooking stir fry?
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 prevalent in Mediterranean food, but never in Asian food.

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.
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 :( .
Yes indeed. The taste may be a little more nutty though but in pancakes and waffles its fine.
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.
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 can, but you have to be much more careful with olive oil than many other types of oil when deep-frying, and the type of olive oil also matters. Extra virgin olive oil, for example, is not generally a good choice for deep-frying because it has a fairly low smoke point (374 F), which means that… it will start to smoke and acquire unsavory flavors fairly easily if you don't control the temperature very carefully. Refined or "extra light" olive oils do have a higher smoke point, but do still have a much stronger flavor than most oils typically used for deep-frying and some of that flavor will inevitably be picked up by the food. For some foods this may be acceptable or even desirable, but for others it may simply make the result taste "strange", so it will depend on exactly what you are cooking whether this is a good thing. Olive oil is also not typically used much for deep-frying because it is usually much more expensive than other forms of oil (corn or peanut, for example), which also do not have any of the above disadvantages.

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.
Only in meat or vegetable recipes. You wouldn't use it to fry eggs or make pastry.
You can use them interchangably, particularly canola oil. There may be a slight change in flavor, particularly when using olive oil.
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.
Yes, However, Olive oil (especially virgin olive oil) is spoiled by the high temperatures when frying and it is therefore better to use corn oil or groundnut oil for frying and adding a little olive oil at the end just before serving the dish/food - this way the olive oil flavor is fresh.
Olive oil CAN be used for frying, but you must have a HIGH quality, Virgin or Extra Virgin olive oil before attempting to cook with it. Various industry sources tend to place the Smoke Point of High Grade olive oil at around 400 degrees Fahrenheit and most frying is done somewhere UNDER 375 degrees,… so this shouldn't be an issue. There are two main methods of frying and the relative merits of each method as it pertains to Olive Oil is as follows: 1) Saute'/Pan Frying. Pan frying requires a relatively small amount of oil and therefore is a rather economical method of frying food. Since E.V. olive oil tends to have a strong (but pleasant) flavor, this method works well with strong flavored foods such as onions, garlic, peppers, asparagus etc. 2) Deep Frying. While it's COMPLETELY possible to deep fry in High Grade olive oil, it's Pure Lunacy to do so. Virgin and Extra Virgin olive oil tends to cost ( I'm guessing here... ) about 3-5 times as much as decent vegetable oil and in general, would leave battered and/or breaded foods with WAY TOO MUCH oil flavor. On the other hand, if neither of those characteristics is an issue for you, then... ( Full Answer )
If you're deep frying, no- olive oil burns at a lower temp than canola. If you're pan-frying you could, but keep in mind that olive oil will impart flavor that is likely undesirable for your shrimp cakes.
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.
\n"Light" olive oil will smoke less than "Virgin" olive oils and be fine for most frying purposes. If you want more flavor, you can use mid grade (virgin but not extra virgin), but be careful with the temperature. The highest grades are usually used for direct consumption such as in salad dressing…s. ( Full Answer )
I guess the best thing shud be butter atleast I use it. But butter melts and IS oil.
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.
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. ( Full Answer )
Yes. Many people are choosing to do this, as opposed to using oils which aren't as healthy.
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.
For frying the best oil to use is one with a high smoking point; oils like sunflower oil, peanut oil or grapeseed oil is best to use.
any other oil will be fine ; so like canola oil, rice oil, peanut ect. you can also use margerine or butter. hope that helped
Yes, but I wouldn't try it unless your up for something good OR bad.....never know
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.
Yes you can fry in olive oil, but you must take care as olive oil burns a lot easier than vegetable or sunflower oil. you must not use extra virgin olive oil for frying or cooking as it burns far too fast and will turn into bad fats, keep extra virgin olive oil for salad dressings or coating potatoe…s, vegetables or pasta for an extra yummy taste before serving. You can use it but I recommend sunflower. ( Full Answer )
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 firstname.lastname@example.org ( Full Answer )
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.
CANOLA OIL This oil originated in Canada and has became known as the Canadian oil, or canola. Canola oil is second only to flaxseed oil as the highest vegetable source of the essential omega-3 fatty acids. Like flax oil, it contains both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, but in a different ratio. Ca…nola oil contains an omega-6 to omega-3 ratio of 2:1. Flax oil is 0.3 to 1. Because it contains one of the highest ratios of unsaturated to saturated fats, it is one of the most heart-healthy oils, reported to reduce cholesterol levels, lower serum tryglyceride levels, and keep platelets from sticking together. Because of the high omega-3 content, heating canola oil above 120? may change some of the fatty acids into trans fats, which raise total cholesterol and lower the levels of good cholesterol. Be sure to buy organic canola oil, since the rapeseeds are often sprayed with pesticides. . OLIVE OIL . Olive oil is made from the flesh of olives rather than the seeds. This means it requires less pressure and lower temperatures during the pressing process, which preserves the nutritional qualities of the oil. Olive oil contains 90 percent unsaturated fats, most of which are the cholesterol-lowering monounsaturates. Olive oil, which by its very nature doesn't need to be processed, is the only oil that can be obtained directly from the flesh of the vegetable and not the seed. This makes olive oil a good choice for your heart. Because it is high in oleic acid and low in linoleic fatty acid, it is slow to spoil. It has a pleasant flavor and can be used both in salad dressings and in cooking. Olive oil is a favorite in Mediterranean cuisine, since olive groves and olive presses are plentiful in that part of the world. Its only drawback is that it contains little omega 3 or omega 6 essential fatty acids. "Virgin" olive oil means that the oil is from the first pressing and has not been refined or chemically processed in any way, such as being bleached or hydrogenated. "Extra virgin" is the highest quality olive oil (for which you pay a slightly higher price). It has a richer, less acidic taste. High temperature cooking destroys the flavor of olive oil, but it is excellent for dressings and the "wet-sautÃ©" method. Avoid olive oil that does not say "virgin" or "extra virgin" on the label, but instead boasts of being "refined" or "pure." "Refined" means that the oil has been chemically processed. "Pure" means nothing more than the oil came from an olive. Even though olive oil is slow to spoil, store it in a cool, dark place in the cupboard. Olive oil is medium in omega 6, but low in omega 3 fatty acids. A combination of flax oil and olive oil in the diet strikes a healthy balance. ( Full Answer )
"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. ( Full Answer )
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. ( Full Answer )
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.
You absolutely can! There are even some turkey fryer oils that are already a peanut blend that are much cheaper. The only downside to veg oil is it will breakdown faster, meaning you may not get more uses out of it as you would peanut oil.
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. ( Full Answer )
