Mashed black olives make an excellent spread or a topping
for vegetables. They can also be used as a last minute stuffing for
already cooked poultry. Any leftover olive mash can be saved in the
refrigerator; it will keep for a few days in a covered container. Try
experimenting with the flavor by adding chili, coriander, or fresh
basil leaves.


  • 1 3/4 cups (400 gr) black olives (pitted weight), chopped very finely
  • 2 whole beefsteak or globe tomatoes, stems removed but with skins and seeds
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped finely
  • 2 tsp of unfiltered cider vinegar
  • 1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 handfuls of flatleaf parsley

Cooking Instructions

1) Combine olives, whole tomatoes, garlic, cider vinegar, and extra virgin olive
oil in a food processor and whizz until smooth.

2) Season with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, and
flatleaf parsley.
