bored with the same ol' dips and party foods? Then try my Roasted Red Pepper
Tapenade with roasted garlic, onions, and chilies. It's scrumptious, it's
zesty, it's bold, and—best of all—it's vegan! It's super-healthy too, so you
won't feel guilty going back for seconds or thirds ... or even fourths. Filled
with the robust flavors of freshly roasted peppers and garlic, blended with a
bit of tahini and lemon juice, this tapenade is made with ingredients that you
may already have in the kitchen. Enjoy it with pita chips, crackers, and vegetables;
spread it on your favorite sandwich; or drizzle it over falafel!
