Rustic Rosemary Olive Bread Loaf

Healthy Fact of the Day

This rustic rosemary olive bread is a flavorful and nutritious option. Olives are a good source of healthy monounsaturated fats, while rosemary adds antioxidants and a distinct aroma. The whole-grain flour provides fiber and essential nutrients, making this bread a satisfying and wholesome accompaniment to any meal.



  • 3 cups (375g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 package (2 1/4 teaspoons) active dry yeast
  • 1 1/4 cups (295ml) warm water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for brushing
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 cup (150g) pitted green olives, coarsely chopped




  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, sugar, and yeast. Create a well in the center and pour in the warm water and olive oil.

  2. Using a wooden spoon or your hands, gradually mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until a shaggy dough forms.

  3. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5-7 minutes, until smooth and elastic. Add the chopped rosemary and olives during the last minute of kneading, incorporating them into the dough.

  4. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a damp towel or plastic wrap, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until doubled in size.

  5. Punch down the risen dough to release the air bubbles, then shape it into a round or oval loaf.

  6. Transfer the shaped loaf to a parchment-lined baking sheet or a greased loaf pan. Cover and let it rise for another 30 minutes.

  7. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

  8. Brush the top of the loaf with olive oil and score the top with a sharp knife or lame if desired.

  9. Bake the rosemary olive bread for 30-35 minutes, or until golden brown and hollow-sounding when tapped on the bottom.

  10. Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack before slicing and serving.

Enjoy a warm slice of this aromatic rosemary olive bread with a drizzle of olive oil or your favorite dipping sauce for a delightful and comforting treat!
