Appetizers/ Vegan


Yes, it’s still winter…  The sky is not blue and the sun is not shining!! So what do we do now??

Well, let’s make a tapenade!!

You know me well now, I’m a huge appetizer fan!! To share with friends or family, on friday nights it’s always appetizers for a dinner to share!! 😉

It was obvisous that I had to give you some day the famous tapenade recipe… Obvious, right?

5 minutes of preparation, no cooking, just a few seconds with your hand mixer and that’s it!! So don’t even bother to buy industrial tapenade anymore if you did, or if you didn’t it’s time to make your own!! Aprons on!!

Let’s learn a bit about tapenade: it’s a Provençal name for a dish consisting of puréed or finely-chopped olives, capers, and anchovies. Its name comes from the Provençal word for capers, tapenas. It is a popular food in the south of France, where it generally is eaten as an hors d’œuvre spread on bread, but sometimes it is used to stuff poultry for a main course.

Taste wise, homemade is much better for sure… And how to preserve it? Simply in a jar with lid in your fridge and you’ll be able to enjoy the tapenade for 3 to 4 weeks! See… you have absolutely no excuse…

The utensils:

A small cutting board,

A sharp knife

And a hand mixer or your blender.

    Bonjour Emma, as tu une suggestion car je suis fan de la tapenade mais sans anchois…. Comment puis je réaliser cette recette dans anchois? La même? Merci d’avance ?

      Alors je ne sais pas trop. Je ne suis pas fan non plus des anchois, mais en prenant la crème d’anchois le goût est beaucoup plus doux. Une fois mélangé avec le reste, on ne sent pas le goût des anchois. Sinon essaie sans. Belle journée !

    J’ai pris donc 5 filets d’anchois comme indiqué dans la recette, malheureusement nous avons trouvé que cette tapenade était beaucoup trop salé :/ Etait-ce peut-être à cause des câpres ?

      C’est possible. Il est recommandé de les rincer. l’aviez-vous fait ? Je vais le préciser dans la recette
