Two New Cookbooks To Liven Up Your Holiday Meals

2 tbsp olive oil

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

2. Prepare the za’atar black olives: In a baking dish, combine olives, za’atar, garlic, and olive oil. Bake, uncovered, for 40 minutes.

3. Prepare the rosemary green olives: In a baking dish, combine olives, rosemary, garlic, and olive oil. Bake, uncovered, for 40 minutes.

You can serve the olives separately, or combine them in one serving dish. These olives turn into a perfect spread for garlic bread or challah if you smash them up a bit.

Can’t find za’atar? Make your own: Combine ¼ cup sumac, 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, 1 tablespoon thyme, 1 tablespoon oregano, and 1 teaspoon salt in a food processor or mini chopper and blend.

AHEAD: You can prepare these olives up to one week ahead. Keep refrigerated and serve at room temperature.

Yields about 4 cups
