SİYAH ZEYTİN EZMESİ




BLACK OLIVE PASTE

When we talk about Turkish breakfast, the first two elements come to our minds are olive and cheese. We do like to eat them plain. However, it is possible to make variety of dishes with olive and cheese.
One of them is this paste. You can spread it on crackers or bread, use it as a seasoning agent for salads and soups. Its uses are unlimited.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups of black olive
  • 2 tbs of olive oil
  • 2 tbs of thyme
  • 1 tbs of basil
  • 1/2 of black pepper
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • salt( optional)
Remove the pits from the olives and discard. Place all of the ingredients in a bowl of food processor and process to a spreading consistency. It takes around ten minutes.

Take the paste in a jar. Spread olive oil on the surface of paste to keep it fresh. Store it in the refrigerator.

These ingredients make two cups of paste.

Enjoy...
