Making basil oil is so simple, trust me you’ll want to drizzle it all over your chicken, fish, tomatoes, vegetables or with some crusty bread!
  • ½ cup packed fresh basil leaves, stemmed and washed
  • ¼ cup DeLallo extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  1. Place the basil, water, garlic, salt and red pepper flakes in a mini-food processor and pulse a few times. Add the olive oil and blend until you have smooth sauce.
  2. Use immediately or refrigerate. Flavors are even more intense the next day. Refrigerate for up to 2 to 3 days.
