Panier Gourmand (Christmas Hamper)

Christmas holidays have been busy cooking all sorts of goodies to offer to my family. I opted for a savoury spread, a few seasonal jams, condiment, homemade chocolates and a totally natural cleaning product. I will post one recipe per day. Today is the Sundried Tomato Tapenade…

Sundried Tomato Tapenade

100g sundried tomatoes (or sunblushed)
100g green olives, stoned
80g pine nuts
50g capers
1 slice of white bread (crust off and torn apart)
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp vinegar (I used balsamic)
1/2 garlic clove, grated
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp ground fennel seeds (I didn’t have any so I omitted it)


  1. Soak the bread in the olive oil
  2. Put all the ingredients in the TM bowl or a food processor/blender and mix 30 sec, speed 8 until it has the consistency of a paste (you might need to stop every so often to scrape down the food from the side of the bowl).
  3. Put in sterilised* pots, pour olive oil on the top and refrigerate**.

* To sterilise pots, either put them in an oven at 150C for 10 minutes or pour boiling water into them and leave for 10 minutes then drain and let to dry.

**This will keep for 2 weeks in the fridge.
