Warm marinated olives, garlic, and capers with fresh herbs. Heat brings out rich complex flavors in this Spanish-inspired recipe!




  1. Heat olive oil in a hot pot or small pan over medium-low heat.
  2. Add olives, garlic, capers, olive oil, lemon juice, herbs, salt, pepper and red pepper and heat about 5 minutes, or until olives are warm and herbs have wilted.
  3. Serve immediately while still warm.


Notes // Tips: Keep heat low and don’t overcook olives. For more flavor, cook garlic first until starting to brown, then turn down heat and add other ingredients to finish before serving.

Leftovers & Storage: Olives will keep well in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days. However, after heating once I would not recommend reheating again or they may have a harder texture and will not be as soft with repeated warming.

Nutrition facts: Olives are high in healthy monounsaturated fats and are an important part of the Mediterranean Diet, named one of the most sustainable eating patterns!
