Chorizo Stuffed Olives

A unique flare to a simple formula
2 serves

12 Queen olives, pitted

4 ounces Sobrasada (spreadable chorizo)

1 cup flour

3 eggs

1 cup panko bread crumbs

2 - 3 cups olive oil for frying


Preparation time: 30 minutes

Fill a piping bag fit with a medium size tip with Sobrasada and pipe the mixture into each olive, being careful not to overfill the olive.

Dredge the olives lightly in flour. Pour the other two beaten eggs into a shallow bowl. Place the stuffed olives — a few at a time — into the bowl and spoon the egg over them. Remove olives from the egg, roll them in the breadcrumbs, and then repeat the process. The breading should be thick. Set aside, and bread the remaining olives.

Pour the olive oil into a medium-sized frying pan and heat to 350 degrees. Fry the olives until the breading is golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel. Serve the olives while warm.

Quick olive hummus

A stunning dip
3 serves

(3-1/2 cups) chickpeas, rinsed, drained and skins removed

½ cup tahini paste

½ cup water

¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

¼ cup fresh lemon juice

3 tbsp white vinegar

3 garlic cloves, peeled and smashed with the side of a knife

¾ tsp salt

⅓ cup chopped spanish black olives

¼ cup chopped spanish green olives


Preparation time: 15 minutes

Place all the ingredients except for the olives in the bowl of your food processor. Process until smooth and creamy, about 4-5 minutes. Stop the motor to scrape the sides, as needed. Also, feel free to add more water, a few tablespoons at a time, until your hummus reaches the desired consistency.

Add the chopped olives and process on pulse until they are well incorporated; 5-6 short pulses should do the trick.

Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving; garnish with a splash of olive oil, more chopped olives and a pinch of chopped parsley at the moment of serving, if desired.
