Sundried Tomato, Brocolli, Kale & Chia Tapenade (Healthy Pesto)

sundried tom 5

This sundried tomato paste is great as a tapenade or pesto & is full of flavour. It is deliciously sweet from the tomatoes, savoury from the parmesan & luxuriously thickened with ground nuts & ground chia seeds. It makes a lovely homemade gift, is easy to make & healthy too !

Eat on toast, with pasta, with cold meat in a salad or an antipasti condiment. I love mine on toast to accompany soup or as brunch along with smoked salmon, eggs & avocado mash.
