Four out of five days this past work week, dinner started in my kitchen with the magical alchemy of three summer staples:
basil, garlic, and good quality olive oil...with generous pinches of salt and pepper, of course.
LC and I visited about it yesterday on 4 Your Garden.
Watch it here if you missed it. We created a puree out of the garlic and basil, then added a golden stream of olive oil...
with the addition of other simple, but heavenly ingredients.
The tiny-leaved boxwood basil
with some companionably small grape tomatoes,
a few glugs of Balsamic Vinegar,
transformed itself into crunchy mouthfuls of basilica, summery deliciousness.
With nothing more than a couple of pulses on a small food processor.
