It’s all about tapas this week on #SundaySupper. Tapas are appetizers, finger food, or small plates that are shared, all perfect for watching football or just gathering with friends. Many thanks to Constance at the Foodie Army Wife for hosting us this week.

I could have gone all complicated with something tasty but requiring 10,000 steps, but in the interest of simplifying my life, I chose this very simple but killer-delicious spread. I like it so much I think I’m going to add a little ricotta cheese and try it in a lasagna. Or spread on the bottom of roasted red pepper galette. But for now, because of that whole simplifying thing I’m trying, I think I’ll just slice up a baguette, slap some Humboldt Fog cheese on a board, and dish up this amazing spread that took all of 10 minutes to make.


Artichoke Heart and Manchego Cheese Spread: #SundaySupper

Cook time: 

Total time: 

Serves: 2⅓ cups

Pimentón de la Vera is a distinctive spice made from chiles harvested in the La Vera region of Spain and dried over smoldering fires of local oak.
  • 2 cups marinated artichoke hearts in a jar, drained
  • 6 regular sized pitted green olives
  • ½ cup grated manchego cheese
  • ¼ cup minced parsley
  • 1 tablespoon pine nuts
  • ⅛ – ¼ teaspoon Pimentón de la Vera
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 baguette, thinly sliced
  • 1 - 2 glasses of your favorite wine

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor, except the oil. (Also excepting the baguette, wine, and friends.) Process until blended. Drizzle in the oil while processing to a fairly smooth consistency.

    Your ingredient list is brilliant, Susan…It’s a delicious recipe for living! Thank you for the tidbit about the chiles from the La Vera region of Spain…They sound pricey but divine =)

  2. Amanda @ MarocMama says

    Tapas are totally a simple comfort food – nothing complicated. This sounds totally delicious, love it!

  3. says

    Yumm! You used artichokes hearts that were not marinated, right? And of course pitted olives.

    I’ve developed several tapas recipes and make them fairly often, esp as appetizers when I have guests for dinner.

    I know I just stopped by here….. but when I saw that title of artichoke hearts and manchego spread I had to stop by again. Talk about two of my favorite ingredients! Looks great for a party or potluck! And I see the nod to Humboldt Fog, as you know we both love that one.
