    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a medium-sized saucepan, simmer the figs in the water for about 30 minutes, until very tender. Drain, reserving a few tablespoons of the liquid.
    2. 2
      In a food processor or with an immersion blender, pulse the pitted olives, drained figs, lemon juice, mustard, garlic, capers, and fresh rosemary to create a thick paste. Pulse in the olive oil until you’ve achieved a chunky-smooth paste. Season with black pepper and salt, if necessary. (The spread can be thinned with a bit of the reserved fig poaching liquid.).
    3. 3
      Serve tapenade with slices of baguette or pita triangles that have been lightly brushed with olive oil and perhaps sprinkled with salt and fresh thyme, or a dusting of chili powder, then toasted on a baking sheet in the oven until nice and crisp.

      Yummy! I really liked the fig addition. The rosemary worked perfectly with the rest of the flavors. I scaled the recipe down and made a small amount for just me. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT9 and the Soup-A-Stars.

      I used a variety of imported olives from France, Greece, Morocco, etc. Easy to make and was delicious on homemade French-style bread! Will eat the rest tomorrow morning on my eggs! Thanks for posting. Reviewed for Veg Tag/December.
