I love it when I find versatile recipes that are both tasty and easy to make. I had some basil and parsley lying in my fridge and was looking for something to flavour my cherry tomato and hummus salad. Hence came the idea of doing this Basil and Parsley oil. I was not disappointed with the luscious green and beautiful smell coming out of the bowl after everything was blended together. A great way to preserve your herbs!
A handful of basil leaves
A handful of parsley leaves
1 pinch of salt
150ml Extra virgin olive oil
- Place all the ingredients in the TM bowl and blend a few seconds speed 6.
- Scrape down the sides and continue blending at speed 6, scraping the sides until all the herbs are blended smoothly.
- Pour out into a jar.
- Use in salads, on pizza toppings, bruschetta, anything you fancy really!
