  • Food processor


Spicy Olive Tapenade

  • 260 grams chilli garlic green olives Note 1
  • 350 grams pitted green olives Note 2
  • 4 anchovies drained, oil blotted
  • 4 garlic cloves skins peeled
  • cup capers drained
  • 1 tbs lemon juice Note 3
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup flat leaf parsley
  • toast points to serve


Spicy Olive Tapenade

  • Add spicy olives, pitted green olives, capers, garlic, anchovies, parsley, olive oil and lemon juice into the food processor.
  • Blitz for 5 -10 seconds
  • Transfer to serving bowl and serve with toast points or crackers.



  • Note 1 I purchase my spicy olives from the deli at the local grocery store. They are pre-marinated and you can literally throw them into the mix without any extra fuss!
  • Note 2 These will be in a jar at the grocery store. We drain and discard the brine. For tapenade we always use pitted olives as we throw them into the food processor as is and it blitzes them up! 
  • Note 3 Bottled or fresh lemon juice is fine, whatever works best for you!
