Tapenade & Goat Chèvre


Lorraine, a metabolic balancer® in California, shares one of her favorite recipes using the goat cheese that she makes. Tapenade is simple and quick to make and delicious with goat cheese.


  • 1/2 cup olives chopped
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 small sprig Rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon zest of a lemon*
  •  1 Tablespoon coconut oil**


Combine olives, thyme, rosemary and lemon zest in a skillet and heat mixture in a pan with coconut oil over high heat until the herbs release their fragrance. Cool. Keep refrigerated in a sealed glass container until ready to use.


  • 1 portion goat chèvre
  •  prepared topanade***
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 small sprig Rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon zest of a lemon
  •  1 Tablespoon coconut oil**
  •  Lettuce***
  •  Rye Cracker

Spread chèvre cheese on cracker and top with the 1/2  of the topenade. Toss remaining tapenade with lettuce and arrange on the plate beside the chèvre.

Yum! Great for Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner…

NOTES: *Zest of lemon is suitable if lemon is on your metabolic balance® meal plan or for Phase 3 or Phase 4. For Phase 2 plans without lemon, substitute lemon thyme. **Strict Phase 2, Omit the oil. ***Phase 2, Olives + lettuce should equal 1 portion of vegetables/lettuce. Divide according to taste.  If olives or chèvre are not on your plan, remember  deviation meals are allowed in moderation after Strict Phase 2. A deviation meal is where you enjoy foods that are not on your list but maybe on somebody’s meal plan. If you are not certain about deviation meals, ask your coach. If you don’t have a metabolic balance® coach, find a coach.
