Black Olive Pate – Phase 1

We love this black olive pate. It’s simply great as is and it also makes a solid ‘base’ if you want to do more with the seasonings or add other nuts and veggies. Black olives have a certain hearty, salty and satisfying texture that makes them uniquely delicious in pates. Diverse enough for a creamy side dish with your favorite chips and veggies or served as a dollop of flavor in a simple miso-based soup. The possibilities are as endless as this pate’s savory simplicity.
