– Northern African Tapenade –

This tapenade is so good!!! First you get the hit of green olive and then the slight nuttiness and texture of the pine nuts, then along comes the hint of cumin. Its recommended to be served with seafood or on it own on some bruschetta but I’m sure there is more you can do with it. This recipe is a conversion from a Family Circle Cookbook called Deli food to make at home, you can make it in a TM5 or food processor.
