Warm olive and tomato sauce

Description

This warm olive sauce goes well with boiled or steamed meat and fish. It also goes well with pasta, as it may remind of a marinara sauce.

 

Ingredients

2 T olives (black olives, pitted)
1⁄4 c tomato (chopped)
2 T olive oil
2 T oregano (fresh leaves)
2 T water
  salt

Instructions

  1. Put olives, tomato and oregano, water and olive oil in the blender jar. Process until smooth. Season, if needed, and stir.
  2. Microwave on high (800-850W) for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Stand for 1 minute.

Notes

Substitute chopped tomatoes with the same amount tomato passata, or half the amount tomato puree + half amount of water.

Substitute 1 tablsepoon fresh oregano leaves with 1 teaspoon dried.

Less salt and pepper are needed when cooking in the microwave. Salt and pepper do not disperse in the food as in traditional cooking.
