Savory Tapenade Palmiers

These tapenade palmiers are a savory version of the traditionally sweet palmiers. They are a delicious vegetarian option for party snacks/appetizers. Or you could have them for brunch.

Even though they’re easy to make (a bit of chopping and assembling) they look so pretty and delicate, everyone will be impressed by your amazing cooking abilities! They actually require little effort, but let’s keep that a secret!

And if they end up not looking so pretty, they’ll still taste delicious. You can enjoy them warm or cold.

Can it be made vegan?

These tapenade palmiers can easily be made vegan, by using vegan puff pastry, and by omitting the cheese or using vegan mozzarella. I used the vegan puff pastry from Lidl and was really pleased, and a bit surprised, by the results!

You could also swap any ingredient in the filling for others you either prefer or have at hand. This recipe is, usually, very forgiving!

  • It doesn’t matter whether the puff pastry is round or rectangular, use whatever you have. I used a round vegan sheet of puff pastry from Lidl.

  1. These palmiers make a nifty appetizer. Have made it 3x. Here is what I learned: triple the filling measurements (at leasth. It’s 350° for 20 minutes otherwise they never bake. An egg wash is also a nice idea.
