Recipe: Argan Oil Goat Cheese Balls with Thyme, Lemon Zest, and Black Pepper

Culinary Argan Oil recipe

Culinary Argan Oil is a new discovery for me.  I have already adopted Argan oil as my nightly moisturizer - I believe in its healing properties as some sort of elixir of youth.  When I found out recently that the health benefits of Argan can also be eaten, I had to get my hands on a taste.  Victoria Gaynor, one of the women pioneers of culinary argan oil in America, gave me the opportunity pair her oil with cheeses.  You can read more about the healthy benefits of oil in her interview here.

The flavor profile of Culinary Argan Oil is surprisingly complex.  The body of the oil is light, but the flavor is nuanced and is reminiscent of popcorn, flaxseed, sesame, and sunflower seeds.  Its nuttiness is distinct and signature to the Argan fruit.

You can use Argan Oil in similar applications as olive oil.  One tablespoon of the oil in this herb-y goat cheese appetizer goes a long way.

We ship Mondays only each week, and orders must be placed by Thursday the week prior to be included in Monday's shipments.  If you purchased a cheese subscription with a set shipping schedule (Meet the Makers or any Gift Subscription), please refer to the respective product page for the fixed shipping schedule.

We are sorry, but we aren't legally allowed to ship cheese across the US border!  We can, however, ship our hardware from our Grotto collection worldwide.  Please note that the shipping costs options you see at checkout do not include customs, duties, and taxes which will be billed to you upon reaching the border, and will be an additional expense.  Those costs vary from country to country, but we recommend calculating at an additional 20% charge. If you refuse the package due to these additional fees and the hardware is returned to us, we will be able to issue a refund minus the outbound and return shipping costs.
