Aromatic pumpkin seed oil has long been a staple in countries like Austria; we love that Stony Brook makes this domestic version—from upstate New York's Finger Lakes region—using a special Styrian pumpkin seed varietal prized for its excellent nutritional value. It has a pronounced nuttiness and roasted squash flavor, with a subtle sweetness and balance between fruity and vegetal notes—you'll love the extra botanical depth compared to supermarket versions.
Use this oil instead of sesame oil to make a variation of our Pan-Roasted Asparagus with Sesame-Lime Dressing
; the vegetal notes in Stony Brook's oil pair wonderfully with the grassy asparagus. Or take advantage of the oil's fruity quality and use it instead of sesame oil in our Ginger-Soy Steak with Pear-Cucumber Salad
to complement the crisp, refreshing cucumber and pear. You can also swap out the olive oil in our Hot Smoked Salmon Salad with Arugula, Avocado and Pumpkin Seeds
for added dimension alongside the pepitas, or dip our Pumpkin Seed Rolls
in the oil for extra depth of flavor.
