This easy herbed Olive Rosemary Focaccia is such a simple recipe, but the flavor is delicious! This quick vegan focaccia bread is light, airy, and moisture and tastes great on its own, with butter or other spreads.
When it comes to food, I especially love dishes where the table is filled with a variety of delicacies and everyone can create their own small selection on their own plate. For me, different dips, fresh vegetables and marinated delicacies shouldn’t be missing. Of course, feasting is twice as much fun with a delicious and freshly baked bread. For bread, I don’t need a selection of different types of bread, but I want a simple, tasty, not too dry, tasty bread, which makes me happy and which tastes delicious even without butter and spreads.
When I was looking for a simple recipe for this type of meal, I came up with this olive and rosemary focaccia, which convinced me from the first bite. The olives, the rosemary, the olive oil and the sea salt create a wonderful Mediterranean taste and the bread is also a pure a true delight. In the past few weeks, this recipe has been my go-to solution for many situations. Whether for a brunch with friends, for dinner or as a weekend snack – this focaccia has been baked very often 🙂
The dough has to rise in the fridge for about 12 hours. But this actually has never been a problem me to prepare. Whether I make the dough the night before or in the morning before work – it’s not a problem to find 5 minutes kneading the ingredients. You can also let the dough rise for up to 24 hours if that suits you better.
I hope you like the focaccia just as much as I do! Enjoy 🙂
