We like the variety here--the same toast spread with two different toppings. The green-olive tapenade, which uses pre-pitted olives, can be made in minutes with a blender or food processor. The sauteed mushroom topping is equally savory hot or at room temperature.
8 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons butter
3/4 pound mushrooms, chopped fine
3 cloves garlic, 2 minced, 1 smashed
1/4 teaspoon salt
Fresh-ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried sage
1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley, plus 1/3 cup lightly packed leaves
1/2 cup pitted green olives
1/2 teaspoon anchovy paste
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
Bruschetta Duet Recipe at
In a large frying pan, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil with the butter over moderately high heat. Add the mushrooms, the minced garlic, the salt, 1/8 teaspoon pepper, and the sage. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are golden, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in the chopped parsley. Remove from the heat.

In a blender or food processor, put the olives, parsley leaves, smashed garlic, anchovy paste, the remaining 6 tablespoons olive oil, the lemon juice, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Blend or process to a coarse puree.

Spread the mushroom mixture on eight of the bruschetta, and the tapenade on the rest.


Bruschetta can be topped with endless combinations of ingredients. Some of our favorites to try:

*Chopped tomato and basil
*Diced roasted bell peppers with crumbled goat cheese
*Drained canned tuna and capers
*Strips of Parmigiano-Reggiano
*A split garlic clove rubbed over the toast, followed by a generous drizzle of olive oil

Missing a step
I may be missing a step in the preparation of this green-olive tapenade. The recipe does not tell you to add the saute ingredients to the olives etc. in the food processor or blender. I assume you do but this step should be included.
