You know this food you can not enough of but forget about it for a while, then feel so surprised that you can forget about something that tastes so good when you have it again?
That was a long sentence! I hope you understand that I mean.
That’s how I feel about food like tapenade. I always wonder why I don’t eat it more often beside it’s easy to prepare and taste so damn good!
It’s perfect as a snack with fresh cut veggies and crackers. Tapenade is great on toast and makes any leftover grains like rice, quinoa taste great again! I even put it on sweet potatoes for a quick and nutritious meal! It’s a great condiment for sandwiches too, way healthier and more flavorful than mayo!
What is tapenade?
Tapenade is originally a puree consisted of olive, capers, and olive oil. It’s very popular in France as a spread for bread for hors-oeuvre. Like hummus, tapenade comes in different flavors. My favorite is the roasted bell pepper tapenade.

one reason is that I was halfway through eating it when I thought about it, second, it was way too dark to take pictures and I was already in my PJs. Hail to artificial lighting! 🤓🤡
