* 2 cups of fat black olives, de-pitted and roughly chopped
* Handful of parsely, roughly chopped,
* 1 sprig of rosemary, off the stem and roughly chopped
* 1 large clove of garlic, you guessed it, roughly chopped
* 1/3 cup of olive oil
* 1/4 teaspoon of salt and
* 1/4 teaspoon of pepper
For a paste, chuck everything in a food processor and blitz it. Taste it and see if you think its lacking anything and adjust accordingly.
Or for a more chunky dip, put everything except the olives in the food processor and blitz. Once everything is finely chopped up and combined, add in the olives and give them a tiny blitz then a slow pulse for a second or two to combine properly.
Put your result in sterile glass jars, make them sweet labels and give them away as gifts, or y'know put it in a bowl, grab some crackers and cheese and get dipping!
We turned our paste into pizza topping, we just spread it with a squirt of tomato paste over the pizza base, added toppings et voila, delish!
