What will you do with this?

There are a gazillion uses for this tapenade. Yes, I said gazillion.

Here are a few suggestions:

  • use it instead of mayo (hello kelbeaudion!)
  • on a cracker as we've shown in the photo's
  • with pasta
  • on top of veggies -like asparagus, yum!
  • make bruchetta and add warmed goat cheese
  • in an omelet
  • for ease of use freeze the tapenade in 1 TB portions. when you want it on pasta or veggies just toss in a tablespoon.


    • Sundried tomatoes (not in oil), 6 ounces (175 grams)
    • Capers, 3 TB (20 grams) -drained
    • Fresh basil, 1 TB (15 mL)
    • Fresh parsley, 2 TB (8 grams)
    • Garlic, 2 TB (5 mL) -chopped
    • Parmesan, 1/4 cup (20 grams) -grated
    • Extra virgin olive oil, 1 TB (10 grams)


    Rehydrate sundried tomatoes in boiling water for about 20 minutes. Make sure water covers the tomatoes.

    Place tomatoes, capers, and garlic in a blender or Cuisinart (with metal blade) and mix until almost smooth -you want there to be some texture to the dish.

    Place the tomato mixture in a bowl, then stir in the basil, parsley, parmesan, and extra virgin olive oil.

    15 servings.

    So how will you serve your tapenade?
