These Mediterranean Baked Olives are inspired by tapas, a fun topping for baguettes I only barely got to enjoy before I was diagnosed with Celiac disease. While gluten-free baguettes might be possible, this version was intended to top salads or fish. With so much rich, herb-and-lemon flavor, they’re a wonderful accompaniment to mild meats and vegetables like chicken, whitefish, celery, and cucumber. But most of them time when I make it, it doesn’t get that far. I wind up eating them by themselves straight out of the oven–they’re just so tasty!
Looking for high-quality meat?
The great nutrition conundrum of our times is how to make a healthy diet sustainable, not just for us and our families, but for future generations. It’s no secret that factory farming has been disastrous for the environment, never mind the welfare of us or our food. So I try to prioritize ethically-harvested, sustainably-raised, grass-fed or pastured proteins. US Wellness Meats not only fits the bill, but they also have a huge variety of other products: Seafood, game meats, jerky, bone broth, sausage, tallow, pork rinds… there’s a lot to love. Free shipping combined with bi-weekly deals from their newsletter can make them more affordable than your local supermarket for meat that’s antibiotic-free, humanely-raised, and really, really good.
