Method

 
Roughly blend the olives, garlic, bokkoms and herbs in a food processor, using the ‘pulse’ function.
If you don’t have a food processor, use a sharp chef’s knife to finely chop all the ingredients.
Aim for a spreadable paste, without mashing it up too much.
Taste for salt (seems superfluous, but trust me - the olive bitterness can be overpowering sometimes), black pepper and lemon juice.
