Olives are a great low carbohydrate snack or starter. A great standby to have in your cupboard. They can be added to salads, lunch boxes and cooked meals. Olives have the added benefit of being good for blood pressure, heart and skin health.

A typical 330 g jar of olives gives you 163 g of drained olives. Measurements are not critical for this recipe, so feel free to change it around. You could make it spicier by adding some thinly sliced chilli pepper!

Steps

1
Done

Marinated Olives

Use a pestle and mortar to crush the coriander seeds, but don’t let them get too fine.

2
Done

Drain and rinse the olives. The salt in the brine we get in jars and cans is not good quality, so always drain and rinse the food in water before eating.

Place all the ingredients in a saucepan and heat over a gentle heat. Don't allow the oil to boil. Keep on the heat for about 5 minutes to allow the flavours to mingle and the garlic to cook a little.

3
Done

Remove from the heat and place in a serving bowl, keeping back most of the oil. The mixture will keep in a lidded jar for several weeks. Ideal for lunches.
