Basil smells so clean and refreshing! We had good luck with basil this year. Here is what we created inspired by http://laylita.com/recipes/2013/09/29/basil-oil-sauce/:
We will call it…hmmmmmmmmmmmmm…….
Basil Olive Oil Dipping Sauce for Bread
A bunch of basil leaves (2-3 cups packed)
1 -2 cups of olive oil depending how thick you want it
2 cloves of garlic
1 tsp of crushed red pepper
1 tsp of oregano leaves
1 tsp Herbes de Provence
The last three herbs are optional. If you are a basic kind of person eliminate the last three and cut back on the garlic. 😉
Combine ingredients in your food processor or blender. I have a Ninja. Eat right away or refrigerate until use. Fresh! Yummy! The freshness is good for a few days, so eat up and enjoy!
