Olive, Basil and Sunflower Seed Spread (tapenade) / Namaz od maslina, bosiljka i suncokretovih sjemenki (tapenada)

This spread is a tapenade and pesto lovechild and I just can’t get enough of it. Since tapenade on its own is pretty intense in flavor, I like it more as a salad dressing then as a spread. But mellowed down with some sunflower seeds and infused with fresh basil, it’s just right.

This spread will keep refrigerated in an airtight container for at least a week.

METHOD:

Wash the olives and capers under running water and drain. Throw all of the ingredients in a food processor and grind into a chunky paste. Taste to adjust the seasoning and serve chilled. Since most of the ingredients are already really salty, I found no need for additional salt in my own version.

Ovaj namaz je zapravo nekakav miks između tapenade i pesta, ali meni je savršen. Pošto je tapenada sama po sebi poprilično aromatična i intenzivnog okusa, meni je draža kao dresing za salatu nego kao namaz za kruh. Ali razblažena sa suncokretovim sjemenkama i obogaćena svježim bosiljkom, baš mi je taman.

Ovaj namaz će bez problema držati u hladnjaku u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi barem tjedan dana.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 teglice / 9,54 kn po teglici / 19,07 kn za sve)

1 šalica odkoštenih zelenih maslina (6,00 kn)

3 žlice kapara (3,00 kn)

4 slana fileta inćuna (2,00 kn)

2 mala češnja češnjaka (0,50 kn)

½ šalice suncokretovih sjemenki (1,00 kn)

4 žlice maslinovog ulja (1,32 kn)

2 žlice limunovog soka (2,00 kn)

Veliki pregršt svježeg bosiljka (3,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Isperite masline i kapare u cjediljci pod mlazom tekuće vode. Sve sastojke ubacite u multipraktik i pulsirajte dok ne krupno mljevenu pastu. Kušajte i prilagodite začine, te poslužite ohlađeno. Pošto je većina sastojaka već dosta slana, ja u svoju verziju namaza nisam dodavala više soli.
