Need a quick & easy delicious appetiser? Look no further than this Olive Paste…
I’ve always loved olive paste & fresh herby bread as an appetiser but I had never tried to make it myself & I didn’t realise how easy it was to make. Until now…
You can whip this up at a moments notice, no long preparation here…It took me a grand total of 10 minutes to throw the ingredients into a blender, whizz it up, pop it into a cute little bowl and Bob’s your uncle – it’s ready to serve.
This is a delicious appetiser that you can serve with fresh bread, melba toast or crackers. It is especially yummy paired with cream cheese.
I like to serve this olive paste alongside a plate of healthy snacks like carrots, cucumber & celery with an avocado dip. It’s perfect for this time of year if you have guests coming over and you need a quick & easy, delicious combo to serve up. Your guests will love it!
For more recipes perfect for this time of year, take a look at my ginger treacle loaf with yoghurt raspberry frosting, and my spiced festive ginger & syrup cookies.
Just double or triple the recipe depending on the size of your gathering.
