Sammy's Savory Granola
This weekend we flew to LA to hang with our dear friend and private chef Samantha Beech. Naturally, we asked if she could show us a few simple secrets in the kitchen. Here is Sammy's savory, semi-sweet, and truly addicting granola recipe she tops on salads, over yogurt, or tosses in her fanny pack for a mid hike snack!
Of course, the recipe features Sizzle Olive Oil from our friends at Graza. Thanks to the super stable picual olive, sizzle was born for the heat. It’s 100% extra-virgin, but made with mid-harvest olives that give it a more mellow flavor.
The recipe also calls for The Salt by Pineapple Collaborative from our #Jonesin Pantry. Produced in partnership with Sarela Herrada of SIMPLi and Yolanda Acurio Mendoza of the women-run co-op Comunidad Salinera de Maras, this blush pink salt from ponds high in the Peruvian Andes is harvested by hand to retain superior mineral content (calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, and potassium).
Its mild taste and medium grind size – between fine kosher salt and crunchy finishing salt – make The Salt a versatile addition to any pantry, enhancing the flavors of all your favorite things to bake! Okay and now for the recipe...
