CalPure™ California Extra Virgin Avocado Oil & Fig-Glazed Pork Tenderloin with roasted Brussels sprouts and carrots

I received product samples for review purposes. All opinions stated are 100% mine.

I joined a meal delivery service called Home Chef. Every week I get to select new meals that I want to try and they send me everything I need to fix the meals from the meat, veggies right down to all of the scrumptious sauces I’ve been trying. All of the meals call for Olive Oil but this time I decided to use Avocado Oil instead. I received some in the mail this week and I’ve been waiting for the perfect opportunity to try it. I’ve been hearing great things about this healthy, tasty and versatile alternative to other cooking oils so it was time for me to try it for myself. I started with a delicious Fig-Glazed Pork Tenderloin that I served with roasted Brussels sprouts and carrots. It was one of my weekend meals that I selected from the Home Chef subscription service I mentioned. You’ll hear more about them so be watching. But let me get back to the CalPure™ California Extra Virgin Avocado Oil. It was so delicious, Alyssa and I scarfed down our meal in less time than it took for me to take photos, lol.

I started by searing my pork loin on 3 sides in hot Avocado Oil. I added a little salt and pepper but kept it simple. While that was cooking, I roasted some carrots, Brussels sprouts and scallions which I drizzled with Avocado Oil as well. At this point, my home was starting to smell amazing and Alyssa and I were ready for our meal to be done. It didn’t take long to cook it but when we were smelling the delicious aromas, it seemed like an eternity. I’ve been told that in addition to a delicious, buttery taste which I can absolutely vouch for, CalPure is also naturally gluten-free, sodium-free, and high in cholesterol-lowering beta-sitosterol. Hows that for a healthy alternative?

This was one of the best meals I’ve cooked all week and I’m sure it’s due in part by the flavor of the Avocado Oil. If you’re ready to try CalPure Avocado Oil to replace your current oil, it’s available online at www.CalPureFoods.com for only $9.75 for a 8.5 FL OZ bottle.

    I’ve never seen avocado oil before. I will look for it next time I’m in the supermarket because avocado has so many nutritional benefits.

    I LOVED pork tenderloin. I buy many if it is on sale in our local market. I LOVE to make adobo or mix it with noodles and makes pancit canton which my kids loves to eat.

      I buy it when it goes on sale as well. For this meal, I ordered it from Home Chef a meal delivery service I’ve recently signed up for. They do my shopping for me.

      I wasn’t sure if it would change the flavor of my foods but it didn’t. I’m happy to have found a healthy oil to cook with.

    I haven’t tried using an extra virgin avocado oil. This sounds so strange to me, I am used to my avocado milk shake!

      I’ve never tried an avocado milk shake before. Sounds interesting.

      Roasted is the only way I can get Alyssa to eat Brussels Sprouts.

    Because I don’t eat pork, I’ll swap it out with chicken breast. I can’t wait to try this. It looks so good.

    1. Terri Beavers

      September 22, 2016 at 4:44 am

      That sounds delicious as well. I use a lot of chicken because beef makes me ache.

    I haven’t tried eating brussels sprouts, I can’t find it in our local supermarket. I think this is a delicious dish.

      The grand kids aren’t fond of Brussels sprouts unless I roast it. They love it fixed this way and the Avocado oil makes it taste all the more delicious.

    This is the first time that I’m hearing an avocado oil and I’m definitely interested. I think it’s a healthy alternative to vegetable oil. It’s definitely worth a try!

    A healthy and fun dish to try on tonight. Though I need to grab some fresh veggies to go with the meat. Thanks for the recipe.

    My stomach is growling now after reading this. Absolutely beautiful plate and the oil looks like something my husband needs to get for the kitchen!
