After 3 minutes of pulsing, this is what the Artichoke Olive Tapenade will look like.

Throw the garlic cloves into the food processor and mince.  Then add the drained artichoke hearts, black olives, Spanish green olives (I measured the green olives by spooning them from the jar into the empty black olive can), capers, parsley and black pepper and pulse a few times. Squeeze the juice of a half lemon in and drizzle in some olive oil.   Pulse a few more times or until the ingredients in the mixture are the size of a popcorn kernel.

Add some crushed red pepper if you want to kick it up a notch.

This is the easiest appetizer that you will ever make. If you want to add some heat, add some crushed red pepper flakes, but it tastes mighty good with just the black pepper. The recipe makes about a quart, so you’ll have plenty to serve a crowd.

I served the Artichoke Olive Tapenade scooped onto some French baguette slices on a silver tray with a doily at a fancy party.

OR if you want to plate it up right away, use a small scoop to scoop it onto some French baguette slices. Add a tiny parsley leaf if you want to be fancy.

French Baguettes

If you get really ambitious, you can make your own French baguettes too with my one-minute baguette dough!  Let it rise, bake it fresh, your house will smell amazing and you will have a super delicious appetizer to bring to your next party.  However, if I’m in a rush, I go to Panera Bread and purchase their baguettes and ask them to put them in the thin slicer machine.
