Olives are an amazing pantry staple that seriously can lift a dish just by existing! If you’re in need of powerful flavor, olives are the pantry staple for you.
Never fear surprise guests again if you have olives handy! All you need to do is blitz them in a food processor with capers, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, and fresh herbs if you have them. Serve with bread or crackers and you’re ready to party!
Don’t have enough time to whip up a tomato sauce from scratch? Olives are here to save the day. Simmer some store-bought tomato sauce or even just crushed tomatoes with some sliced olives and you will have a complex tasting sauce in no time. The best thing to do is to make sure you toss the pasta in the sauce while it’s on the heat so all the sauce is absorbed, and you have a gorgeous dish!
If you need a little salty bite to get you through seemingly boring salads, olives are here to save the day. Not only will they give you a bit of fat as well to keep you feeling full, but whenever you bite into one it feels like a little treat!
