Save your favourite recipes

We have thousands of recipes on the olive website, so this is a great way to remember your favourites. It’s really easy to save your favourite recipes in your olive account, so you can quickly access them when you next need them.

Create your own recipe collections

Sorting your favourite olive recipes into collections means you have plenty of inspiration at your fingertips for recipes and dishes you know work. Or if you’ve seen a recipe you fancy making the next time you have a dinner party or have leftover veg, you can thank your former self with plenty of inspiration. Create your own collections including ‘Healthy midweek dinners’, ‘Dinner party desserts’, ‘Quick vegetarian meals’, ‘Birthday cakes’ and more.

Rate and comment on recipes

Our users can now rate recipes as well as providing helpful comments for our cookery team and the olive community. If you have an ideas for twisting a recipe or suggestion for others in the olive community who are making the recipe, then leave a tip, or if you have a question for our cookery team, we will get back to you with expert advice.

Upload your own recipes

Have a recipe you’re proud of that you’d like to share? Upload your recipe to your olive account to share with others in the olive community. It’s quick and easy to do, you just need to upload the ingredients, method, image and how long it takes, then click save and wait for it to be published.
