Green olive paste

2 comments Mar 3rd, 2010 | By | Category: Dips, Recipes

Olive paste allways comes in handy. I spread it on crackers but also use it with pasta dishes or vegetable dishes. It allways adds a nice touch to the meal. Here I present a green olive paste.

preparation time: 10 minutes

very simpe recioe


  • a small glas of green olives (300 gram)
  • 3 Anchovies (canned)
  • some thyme
  • some oregano
  • some lemon peel
  • a clove of garlic
  • 4 ts olive oil
  • salt and pepper


Pit the olives and put them into a blender. Add the other ingredients. Process them until you have a fine paste. You may want to add some olive oil it the paste seem too dry.

Store in a jar in the fridge. It stores well fro up to two weeks, though it rarely lasts for that long.

  1. Perfect as a starter on crackers!



  2. Green olives need to be made into ‘pasta elies” more often. This will be scooped up with bread in no time.
