With Kalamata Olive Paste, you will never run out of ideas for appetizing dishes. This spread is flavorful and healthy at the same time since it is made from famous Greek olives – Kalamata olives.

You can use this paste with so many dishes, and below is the top 7 in Hanoli’s list.

Fig Kalamata olive paste stuffed brie (15 minutes)


  • Olympias Kalamata olive paste
  • 1 round brie cheese
  • 1 x recipe fig olive tapenade see below
  • Crackers for serving


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Slice the round of brie in half crosswise and place the rounds on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  3. Put 2 tablespoons of Kalamata olive paste (more or less to taste) on the bottom half brie round and top it with the other half round of brie.
  4. Place another 2 tablespoons of Kalamata olive paste on top and bake the brie for 8-12 mins depending on how melted you want your brie to be. Serve with crackers.

Recipe Notes

I like my baked brie super melty. It remains liquid and warm for a while after serving but as you can see it also loses that perfect round shape.  If you wish to keep that perfect round shape, bake the brie for 3-4 mins less and serve it right away so it’s still warm.

Kalamata Olive Paste Linguini with Prosciutto


  • Hanoli – Olympias Kalamata olive paste
  • 450g linguini

  • Fresh parsley, for garnish


  1. Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain well, reserving some of the pasta water; set aside.
  2. Toss pasta with Kalamata olive paste and a bit of extra virgin olive oil and reserved pasta water, breaking up the noodles and creating a thin, light sauce.
  3. Serve topped with prosciutto, Parmesan, and fresh parsley.

Grilled Eggplant and Halloumi Sandwich

Thick slices of eggplant and halloumi are grilled up and slathered with tapenade mayonnaise in this open faced grilled eggplant sandwich. Great for lunch or for dinner! | justalittlebitofbacon.com


  • 2 tbsp Hanoli – Olympias extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 inch large eggplant cut into about 12 1/2 slices, or 2 small
  • 4 slices thick of crusty artisanal bread
  • 8 oz halloumi cheese cut into 8 slices
  • 1 leaves bunch fresh basil
  • 2 tbsp pine nuts optional
  • 1 recipe Kalamata olive paste


  1. Preheat the grill or heat a grill pan on medium.
  2. Brush the eggplant slices with olive oil and grill, covered, on medium heat until tender and cooked through, about 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer the eggplant to a serving platter. Then brush the bread with olive oil and lay it on the grill. Grill on both sides until you have nice grill marks on the bread, 1-2 minutes per side. Lastly, grill the halloumi until it’s browned and a bit soft in the middle, 30-45 seconds per side.
  3. Lay a slice of bread on a cutting board. Spread with Kalamata olive paste. Layer on basil, eggplant, and halloumi. Add some more tapenade mayo on top if you wish. Sprinkle with pine nuts. Cut the sandwich in half and transfer to a plate. Repeat for the remaining sandwiches.


  • Some brands of halloumi are softer and more difficult to grill than others. You can test if the cheese is easily grillable by putting one slice on to see how it does.
  • However, a grill pan is a great way to get the halloumi really brown and soft for the sandwiches. If you are looking for a nice, brown crust on the cheese, skip the grill entirely and use the pan instead.
  • For the grill pan the times are about the same as for the grill, though you may need to cook the ingredients in batches depending on the size of your pan.

Sweet Potato Toast with Kalamata Olive Paste

Sweet potato toast topped with a savory tapenade of olives, capers, garlic, and fresh herbs. Healthy holiday party appetizer! Vegan, Gluten-Free.


  • 1 medium sweet potato cut lengthwise into 5-6 (¼”) slices
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon black truffle extra virgin olive oil optional
  • Hanoli – Olympias Kalamata olive paste


  1. Toast sweet potato slices in toaster oven or toaster for 10-15 minutes or until cooked through (I made 5 slices at once using my toaster oven). Set aside.
  2. Transfer toasted sweet potato slices to a serving dish. Spoon Kalamata olive paste on top of sweet potato slices. Drizzle with truffle oil and more salt and pepper (if desired) before serving.

Cheesy Kalamata Olive Paste Stuffed French Bread



  • 1 large loaf French Bread
  • 1 heaping cup Hanoli – Olympias Kalamata olive paste
  • 1/2 cup sliced black olives
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 ounces cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 2 ounces herbed goat cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • 3 tablespoons mayo
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl mix together Kalamata olive paste, sliced black olives and chopped green onions. Set aside.
  3. In a separate, smaller bowl, beat together the cream cheese, goat cheese, butter and mayo. Fold the cheese mixture with the tapenade olive mixture and add the shredded mozzarella.
  4. Using a large bread knife, carefully slice off the very “top” of the French bread loaf (slice it in half lengthwise). To make more room for the olive cheese mix, I scooped out a little of the inside soft bread – not too much, we still want some bread with the dip 
  5. Spread mixture thickly onto the sliced French Bread and sprinkle with a thin layer of mozzarella cheese, if desired.
  6. Bake at 325 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until cheese is melted and golden.
  7. Remove from the oven, slice and serve. Best served immediately, or leftover and heated for up to 2-3 days.
