Have you ever had roasted olives? Sometimes, the simplest modifications can elevate a dish or an ingredient in a way that is, frankly, unbelievable! I recently tried roasting olives and served them as part of a smörgåsbord dinner (like a cheeseboard), and they were one of the top two favorite components of the dinner spread. Olives are delicious on their own, but when you add a few herbs and a bit of olive oil, and then roast them, the results are spectacular and astounding!
So here’s the world’s simplest recipe, for Herb-Roasted Castelvetrano Olives. If you like olives, you won’t be disappointed!
Herb-Roasted Castelvetrano Olives
makes about 5 cups
– About 5 cups olives
– 1/2 cup olive oil
– 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
– pinch red pepper flakes
– 6 small sprigs thyme
– 3 sprigs rosemary
– 2 head garlic, separated, peeled, and smashed a bit
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Toss all ingredients in medium-sized mixing bowl. Spread on baking sheet and roast for about 25-30 minutes, or until olives are blistered. Stir once halfway through roast time. Keep a jar (for a few weeks) of these in your refrigerator to put out when unexpected guests stop by!
