Olive Tapenade!

March 4, 2018

Hey everyone, so this week we share with you something super yum and easy to make; an olive tapenade!


If you love a hummus spread or smashed avocado on your toast, you will love this fresh alternative to all of that good stuff, it's also a great additional spread/dip for dinner party's with nibbles or as part of a starter.


What you need / ingredients:


• Olives (I used dried black Moroccan olives and Kalamata olives from my local olive dealer (",) )

• Handful of fresh parsley 

• 2 teaspoons of fresh lemon juice

• 2 - 4 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil

• 1 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar 

• 1/4 of a red chili pepper (I used half of the one pictured)

• 1/4 of a red onion (I didn't actually use all of this) 

•  2 garlic gloves (I got mine with the olives) 

• Black pepper 




Feel free to add more / less of the lemon juice, vinegar or olive oil depending on the taste and texture. I didn't add any salt as olives are already quite salty.





The Method:


• Remove the pip's from the olives 

• You can chop up the ingredients so they are easily processed in the food processor (I started with 1 & 1/2 tsp of the olive oil & added until I got the desired consistency).

• Add all of the ingredients into a food processor and whiz / pulse your mixture up.

• You may need to shake/scrape down the sides and add any extra olive oil / lemon / vinegar depending on your taste buds, so play with it and taste as you go along and you're done! 


Place your olive tapenade into a dish and sprinkle with some extra parsley on top, enjoy with some.... errrm, warm bread!? - because why not :)



If you do try this recipe be sure to share your dish with us, we'd love to see them!  We hope you enjoy it, all the love !
