7 ways to use Cwrtau Bach’s Ravenous Red Pepper & Olive Tapenade

At markets and other events, I often am asked how I would use our Ravenous Red Pepper & Olive Tapenade. So instead of simply telling people and hoping they’ll remember, I thought it best if I put in print my favourite ways to use our award-winning product.

The No-brainer  

Dip with crusty bread or crackers: the obvious choice and best starter for a dinner party (or late night snack!)

Fantastic Fish  

Bake or grill any white fish or salmon, then simply add a healthy dollop of tapenade for an instant gourmet dish

The Creamy Dip  

Mix tapenade with mayonnaise or Greek-style yoghurt for a vegetable platter, with breadsticks or a decadent sandwich spread

Best Salad Dressing 

 Add one or two teaspoons to a vinaigrette, either homemade or store-bought. Make your own 1 part red or white wine vinegar; 2 parts extra virgin olive oil; salt and pepper to taste. I store mine any leftover dressing in a jam jar in the fridge.

Give Pizza some Oomph

If you make your own pizza, smear tapenade on the pizza base before adding your toppings. Even quicker pizza? Slice a baguette lengthwise, smear on tapenade, add mozzarella and parmesan (or cheddar is you must) and place under grill for a couple minutes. Delicious!

More Pizza (and Pasta) Oomph

If you don’t think the kids would be too keen on pure tapenade, mix a couple teaspoons with tomato passata and a teaspoon of tomato puree to make your pizza (or pasta sauce). Take it a step further with a good dash of balsamic vinegar, if you like a super rich flavoured sauce.

The Vegan Love

For a filling vegan meal, toss tapenade into cooked pasta and/or grilled vegetables such as courgettes (zucchini), aubergines (eggplant), red onion slices, red peppers, artichokes, and fennel. Devine!
