What's your recipe? Also, can tapenade be used in pasta the same way as pesto?
Mine is the same, (except for amounts) but I add shallots and I don't use the food processor.
I can't find my recipe at the moment but I remember I put in pitted Kalamata olives, garlic, anchovies, capers, lemon, extra olive oil if needed. Whirl in the food processor.
I don't have exact amounts off the top of my head but mostly olives with the rest for flavoring so I think of them as to taste.
So near as I can remember
Olives 6 cups.
Garlic Fresh 2 Tbsp
Capers 2 oz.
Lemon Juice and zest of one lemon
Anchovies 4 each.
It can absolutely be used like pesto with pasta. Also good on toast with eggs for breakfast or as in an omelet with roasted red peppers and pesto on top.
