Meatless Monday: Roasted Red Bell Pepper Artichoke Tapenade

We’re featuring this tapenade as a tasty appetizer, served on unsalted melba toast rounds, which have little to no sodium. (When buying crackers, bagel chips or pita chips, choose the whole-grain types and check the nutrition labels to make sure you’re buying the lowest sodium available.) It also can be eaten as a healthy sandwich spread.
