60 Second Vegetarian Tapenade

This post is brought to you by Mezzetta.
60 Second Vegetarian Tapenade-so easy to make!I am constantly surprised by how many seemingly innocent foods aren’t vegetarian. Tapenade, one of my favorite spreads, is typically made with anchovy paste. To be clear, I’m totally not that vegetarian. I’m sure I’ve had more than my fair share of animal products in the last 18 months. I just try to cut them out when I can. A lot of times that means making things yourself. In the case of this tapenade there’s no reason to buy it in a store. It’s far too easy to whip it up yourself. It’s deceptive simplicity makes it a shoe-in for your holiday entertaining.

Mezzetta OlivesI’m starting with a trio of my favorite Mezzetta olives. I personally recommend going heavy on the Kalamata and light on the Garlic Stuffed, but do as you please. This is a recipe that you can’t get wrong.

Add a splash of lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil. Pulse until you get the desired texture. I wanted a chunky tapenade with lots of texture. Prefer something smoother? Just keep pulsing!
