Marinated Olives with Garlic, Herbs and Gochugaru


Marinated Olives with Garlic, Herbs and Gochugaru

A super simple recipe for a delightful and versatile dish. These super flavorful olives can be enjoyed as a delicious snack or side dish and they can be a perfect addition to any charcuterie or cheese board.


If you've seen some of my other recipes, you will notice that I love garlic and gochugaru and I try to incorporate both as much as I can in my cooking. With this dish particularly, I think they complement each other quite well.


You will need:


Marinated Olives with Garlic, Herbs and Gochugaru

  • Olives (vacuum-sealed, stones in)

  • Olive oil/ sunflower oil/ vegetable oil

  • One or two garlic cloves, crushed and diced

  • Gochugaru (Korean pepper flakes) or chilli flakes

  • Dried Herbs - sage/rosemary/oregano/basil/parsley


How to:


Marinated Olives with Garlic, Herbs and Gochugaru

  1. In a bowl, mix the olives with the garlic, herbs and gochugaru

  2. Put the seasoned olives in a jar

  3. Slowly add the oil of your choice to the jar

  4. Cover with a lid and store in the fridge for one or two days at least. The longer you leave them, the more time garlicky they become.

  • When serving, you can add squeeze some lemon juice on top

  • Olive oil condenses at low temperatures so make sure to let the olives warm up at room temperature before serving them

  • They last in the fridge for up to 2 months

  • You can use green olives as well, as long as they are vacuum-packed and not in brine if you want to marinate them for longer

  • If using olives in brine, drain them and follow the same steps, just make sure to use them sooner, as they will keep for less in the fridge than the vacuum-sealed ones.

  • You can add some cracked black pepper or some chilli flakes to the mix as well

Before serving you can take the olives out of the fridge, add a few cubes of feta cheese, give them a stir and keep them at room temperature for a few minutes, you will not regret it.
