Tips and Recommendations

  • Feel free to use your favorite variety of stuffed olives for this recipe, such as garlic-stuffed, almond-stuffed, or blue cheese-stuffed olives.
  • If you prefer a thicker stew, you can mash some of the cooked potatoes against the side of the pot to help thicken the sauce.
  • Serve the stew with crusty bread or cooked rice for a complete meal.


1. Can I use fresh tomatoes instead of canned diced tomatoes?

Yes, you can substitute fresh tomatoes for canned diced tomatoes. Simply peel and chop about 3-4 medium-sized tomatoes and add them to the stew in place of the canned tomatoes.

  • 1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic, and sauté until softened and fragrant, about 5 minutes.
  • 2. Add the diced potatoes to the pot and cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 3. Stir in the diced tomatoes, vegetable broth, tomato paste, oregano, basil, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a simmer.
  • 4. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and let the stew simmer for about 25-30 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.
  • 5. While the stew is simmering, prepare the stuffed olives. Use a small knife to carefully slit each olive open and remove the filling. Stuff each olive with a small amount of the removed filling.
  • 6. Once the potatoes are tender, add the stuffed olives to the stew and gently stir to combine. Let the stew simmer for an additional 5-10 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  • 7. Taste and adjust the seasoning with more salt and pepper if needed.
  • 8. Serve the stew hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley.
