Jazz up the humble olive with a stint in the oven and a spicy coating.
Place a flat tray in the oven, until heated through.
Pop your olive oil into the hot tray and coat the surface.
Place your olives into the tray. Shake the tray so they are evenly spaced and place back into a 200 degree Celsius oven for 45 minutes.
Once baked, remove from the oven and stir through your chosen spice mix. Matthew Hayden used one with dried Sicilian herbs, lemon, rosemary, garlic, and chilli flakes in episode 4 of his show.
Allow to cool and serve.
