New Orleans Muffaletta (Olive Pesto)
3 large cloves garlic, minced
1 cup chopped pimiento stuffed green olives
1 cup pitted and chopped black olives
1/2 cup roasted sweet red peppers, cut into chunks
1/2 olive oil
Make 24 hours ahead for best flavor, but not necessary. I use a small food processor for the olives, but peppers must be chopped by hand. Serve with a good Italian vegan bread or as a condiment for roasted Italian veggie sandwich.
