I love so much olives that I wanted to make a easy vegan recipe with them for festive periods, so I made this yummy marinated mediterranean olives with pomegranate.
I choose three different types of olives, you can choose your favourite ones.
This olives have so much flavour due to the marinated, I left them overnight in a jar with the ingredients that you´ll find below, the taste is absolutely delicious.
To get even more flavour I decided to bake them and it really works! It helps to release all the oils and flavours from the olives.
The pomegranate seeds really helps to bring some freshness to this delicious recipe, I really enjoyed both of the flavours together.

1 cup green olives
1 cup black olives
1 cup brown olives
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
3 garlic cloves
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1/3 tsp Himalayan salt
1 cup of pomegranate seeds
preparation time: 5 minutes
total time: 15 minutes
serving size: 4 serves
Use a pestle and mortar to crush all the ingredients, just a bit, don´t get mad, it will help to mix all the flavours, then pour it in a jar and leave it overnight to marinate.
You can serve it at room temperature or as I did put them in the oven for 10 minutes at 200ºC, it will help to release all the flavours.
Then mix with with the fresh pomegranate and enjoy!
