Bruschetta Duet

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


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Spread the mushroom mixture on eight of the bruschetta, and the tapenade on the rest.
