Our Thermomix Olive & Rosemary Focaccia is the perfect side to a bowl of soup or pasta... or completely delicious all on it's own (with butter, of course!).
Our Thermomix Olive & Rosemary Focaccia is based on the fabulous recipe in the Thermomix EDC - it's brilliant and fool-proof. BUT!!! We think that adding olives, rosemary and sea salt takes it to a whole new level of yumminess!
This is a super simple recipe that is delicious served with soup (especially when the weather is chilly), but it's also delicious on it's own. You can use any type of olives you like - I generally use kalamata olives, but green olives (with chilli!) are soooo delicious too.
