Quick Fix | Tapenade 
Tapenade is a dark, velvety, rich olive paste. This simple ProvenÁal concoction traditionally contains anchovies, which Iíve omitted because Iím not a big fan of fishy flavors Ė feel free to throw in some anchovy fillets if you like.

ingredients
1 can black olives
1 large clove garlic
2 tsp capers
3 tbsp olive oil
time 5 min
serves --


1. Drain the olives. Peel the garlic.
2. Combine olives, garlic, capers and olive oil in a blender or food processor (donít overblend Ö it should have a slightly chunky texture).
3. Serve it as a spread on crusty bread, as a dip for crackers, as a sauce for pasta and couscous, or as an accompaniment to fish/seafood.
