This is a super quick vegan supper if you are in a time crunch and the ingredients are super simple, you probably have most of them in your cupboard right now!
This was inspired by a recipe by Jamie Oliver. I made it a couple years ago when I first began experimenting with "meat-free" recipes and it was so yummy! I love the taste of the black olives with the oregano and tomatoes. It's a very tangy, sweet, herbal sauce that can be spooned on top of rice or gluten-free pasta.
1/4 red onion, finely chopped
1 clove of garlic, minced
1/3 cup kalamata olives, de-pitted and halved
1/2 tbsp green capers
1 tsp dried basil
2 tsp dried oregano leaves
6-7 whole tomatoes (from a can) chopped
A couple spoonfuls of liquid from can of tomatoes
Salt and pepper to taste
Saute onion, garlic, olives, capers and spices in a frying pan until soft. Add salt pepper, tomatoes and juice. Let simmer for about 5 minutes. Add more liquid if need be. Serve on rice or pasta!
