Recipe from: 11 June 2015
Preparation time: 10 min


  • 2
    dried olives
  • 1
  • 6
    cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 4



If the olives are very dry, steep them in olive oil before making this.

Blitz all ingredients in a food processor until you have a fairly smooth paste. Don’t overwork it as you do need some texture. This is an alternative to a traditional anchovy-driven tapenade but you can add a tablespoon of chopped anchovies if you like.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

Tip of the day

Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
