So, what is olej?

Olej, also known as oil, is a versatile food ingredient that plays an essential role in cooking and baking. This viscous liquid is extracted from various sources, such as seeds, nuts, and fruits, and comes in different varieties, each with its unique flavor and health benefits. Olive oil, for example, is well-known for its heart-healthy properties, while sesame oil adds a distinct nutty flavor to dishes. Besides adding flavor, olej also functions as a cooking medium, helping to distribute heat evenly and preventing food from sticking to surfaces. With its many uses and benefits, olej is a crucial ingredient in many cuisines worldwide.
