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