I have been entertaining a lot in my home lately, and sometimes it is on the spur of the moment. I like having items in my pantry that I can quickly grab to create a culinary masterpiece for guests on the fly. Canned goods are great for this purpose because they will last without perishing. The ironclad technology these days in canned foods helps to seal in the flavor, nutrition and goodness of fresh foods. In just 10 minutes, I was able to create a White Bean Tapenade Recipe using the ingredients I already had on hand. The can is a fantastic way to get food from the farm to my family’s table. Homemade food made easy that tastes great!
Olives of all varieties is one of my standard pantry items. There are so many fabulous dishes you can create, and I love the nutritious value that olives offer. Beans are another staple I keep on hand in many options as well. I created this White Bean Tapenade Recipe in a very short amount to serve when family showed up on short notice.
