Herbes de Provence Warm Olives

Herbes de Provence Warm Olives

When we lived in Victoria one of our favourite places to eat was Be Love Restaurant. One of our favourite items on the menu was their , whose flavour changes with each seasonal menu. I have been missing the island of late and was inspired to make these olives, as a way to bring that west coast experience to the east coast. I have included a link for a simple recipe if you are unable to source it at your local grocery store. There are varieties with and without lavender, however, I find a bit of lavender really makes the blend. The leftover oil and seasoning can be mixed with some balsamic vinegar and used again as a bread dip. Enjoy!

Herbes de Provence Warm Olives


1/4 cup Olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
Zest from 1 Lemon
1/2 tsp Tarragon
1/2 tsp Herbes de Provence
1 cup Olives
Cracked pepper


Warm olive oil in a small pot over medium heat. Add crushed garlic and saute until fragrant, about a minute. Add lemon zest, tarragon, and Herbes de Provence to the pot, stirring to combine. Add olives and stir for a minute or two more, until olives are warm and coated in the oil and herb mixture. Remove from heat, top with black pepper and serve. Leftovers can be kept in a mason jar in the fridge.
