Fig-Sweetened Honey-Olive Tapenade Recipes
Servings: 1 cup
The honey here serves to sweeten the savory flavor of the olives and capers and bring life to the figs. It also helps thicken up the tapenade and make it more paste-like.
In a medium saucepan with Teflon™ nonstick coatings, simmer the figs until they soften, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a food processor and add the olives, lemon juice, mustard, honey, garlic, capers and thyme. Pulse a couple of times. Pulse in the olive oil until you have a chunky, paste-like finish. Remove and season with pepper, if desired.
