TOMATO TAPENADE

This had to be my favorite part of dinner! This spread had a deep, complex flavor that was perfectly complimented by the basil. If I had nothing else to eat, I would have been a happy person.

Ingredients:
1 pint of cherry tomatoes
4 regular tomatoes, quartered
2 tsp. garlic chopped
1 tsp. herbs de Provence
2 Tbs. olive oil
½ tsp. salt
1 Tbs. honey
4 Tbs. fresh basil, chopped
Thinly sliced herbed foccacia bread, cut into small slices

Directions:
Place tomatoes, garlic, herbs and salt into a medium sauce pan over low heat. Cover and cook for 18 minutes. Remove cover, add oil, and turn heat up to high and let cook until the liquid has fully evaporated (about 10-15 minutes). Add honey, stirring constantly for about one more minute. Remove from heat. I Place a dollop of tomato spread onto each piece of bread and top with fresh basil. This was unbelievably good. Enjoy!
