olive tapenade for lunch

Simple. Delicious. Healthy. Fast. Here was my lunch:

Olive tapenade:

1 can black olives
1 roasted bell pepper (didn't make it from scratch this time.. I have a jar)
3-4 cloves garlic
several sprigs of fresh oregano and rosemary
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp olive oil

I enjoyed it with some carrots, and spread on a piece of toasted China Black Rice bread, made by Food for Life. I love all their gluten free breads.


  1. Olive tapenade! I was just talking to a friend yesterday morning about how I had been craving a good olive tapenade. Usually I get it at Trader Joe's, but since the nearest one to Missoula is two states away, I've been tapenade-less. But now! Now I have a simple recipe that I can make myself! Thanks for sharing, it looks SO good!

  2. What a great black olive tapenade. I only ate a green olives tapenade before but I must make this one,..looks so tempting!
