Olive and Walnut Spread Recipe

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 0

Yield: serves many

Ingredients:

3/4 cup walnuts, lightly toasted and chopped, divided*
2 cups pitted kalamata olives, finely chopped
1/4 cup walnut oil
Pinch of black pepper
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh sage leaves, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh oregano, chopped
3 teaspoons coarse-grained mustard
Baguette bread

*  Toasting walnuts will crisp their texture and brings out their rich aroma and taste.  Toast whole walnuts before chopping them into smaller pieces.

 

Instructions:

To toast walnuts, preheat oven to 350 F.

Place walnuts in a single layer in an ungreased shallow pan or rimmed baking sheet.  Bake 5 to 10 minutes, stirring once or twice during toasting to aid in even browning, or until they are golden brown. Remove from oven and remove from pan; let cool.  The first time you try toasting walnuts, it's better to error on the side of under-toasting than over-toasting.

In the bowl of a blender or food processor, add 1/4 cup walnuts, olives, walnut oil, pepper, garlic, thyme, sage, oregano, and mustard; process until coarsely pureed . Stir in remaining 1/2 cup chopped walnuts.

Serve with sliced baguette bread and enjoy.
