Veg Confetti

Sprinkle it here and there… and be happy!

I love making variations of this tantalising veg confetti. (Also known as tapenade.) For my latest mix I used:

  • 1 red fajita chilli
  • 1 red hot chilli
  • 1 medium tomato
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 8 black olives (stones removed)
  • a drizzle of olive oil
  • a squeeze of fresh lemon
  • 1 small/ medium sized red or white onion chopped
  • A handful of spinach/kale leaves ( I used 3 small/medium sized cavalo nero kale leaves and 5 small/medium rainbow chard leaves as they are growing in the garden here at the moment – Kale grows very well in winter in England)

To make this tangy veg conffetti I add all ingredients to the food processor and blend until you get a chunky dip consistency. With all the raw garlic and fresh chillies, the mix makes for a very tasty, spicy, garlicky snack sensation!

Spread onto toast, or crackers or serve as a garnish with meals. If you don’t like chillies, you can make the same mix without them. Olives blended with garlic and soft green kale leaves makes a lovely addition to any meal.
