Decadent vegan black olive, walnut, and garlic tapenade

Submitted by: BINGHAM37

Introduction

This is decadent, use with lots of veggies and in moderation. Toss with hot pasta instead of pesto, try it as an elegant and rich spread on whole grain crackers, thinly spread on bread instead of mayo for a lush addition to a sandwich, or crumble on a vegan pizza as a rich topping instead of the standard cheese. Add hot pepper to taste (be careful if you plan on cooking the mixture later because the heat seems to concentrate) or a fresh herb if you have it... basil is nice but I bet thyme or marjoram would be great too.

Notice that the ratio is 1 to 1 to 1/10th for the olives, walnuts, and garlic respectively. I know weights are more accurate so I went with them here but feel free to experiment. I remembered this "recipe" from a Moosewood cookbook.that I used to have a long time ago... I'm not sure if I changed it or not.
