What a lovely tapenade, so versatile and creamy! I’ve had it as a condiment for mushroom/chèvre burgers as well as a spread on rye crackers for afternoon fika. This recipe is very useful 👍🏼
I make it easier for myself by using a food processor and I prefer the resulting creamy texture.

This recipe is amazing! Sometimes I serve it with Hummus over sliced baguette for my guests. They absolutely loved it.

I can't spell how amazing this is! 🤤 I used it in a stewed mushroom and tofu sandwich.
