“Simple to do, and a delight to add as a garnish to other dishes. My favorite is to swirl it into my Roasted Tomato soup just before serving.”

Delightful! I had a chicken and pasta dish that looked a bit bland, whipped this up and... voila! Looked and tasted gourmet. I even made it simpler by pulsing in my food processor until it was the right consistency. Thanks Phil!

Quick and easy, yet tasty. This makes a very small amount and is perfect for add to slices of french or sour dough bread before I grill them. Also, this is great on pasta with or without marinara. Phil's suggestion of swirling it into tomatos soup is great. One of my favorite restaurants makes a hearty tomato soup and it is served with basil puree on top.

Basil puree saves the day! My kids were disappointed because I had no parmesan or nuts to make pesto, but then, I found this! We made it to fit the amount of basil I had (probably less than this recipe intended), and it was a great sauce for our home made spinach noodles! A little goes a long way for flavour, so it fed the whole family!
