  1. Extra virgin olive oil is part of the Mediterranean diet, so yes, for us it’s vital to the flavour of the dish!! 🙂 Anyway, you can replace it, but it would be better to use an olive oil…

  2. @MrHomeChef I’m not the vegetarian, I made it for my friend who just had surgery and can’t get out of bed. She just doesn’t like meat, that’s all. Y U SO IGNORANT??
