Recipe

Yield: About ¾ cup

Ingredients

  • 1 cup olives, such as Niçoise, Kalamata, or green, pitted
  • ¼ cup capers, rinsed
  • 2 small garlic cloves
  • 2 teaspoons chopped thyme leaves or ½ teaspoon dried
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Freshly milled pepper
  • Fresh lemon juice

Directions

In a food processor, make a smooth paste of the olives, capers, garlic, and thyme if using dried. Add the olive oil while the machine is running. Season with pepper and add lemon juice and thyme if using fresh.

Notes

Spread on croutons, pungent olive paste sets off all kinds of foods—fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, roasted peppers, grilled eggplant, and hard-cooked eggs. Olive paste keeps more or less indefinitely in the refrigerator.
