I adore basil! Fresh basil leaves, onion, and garlic blended with butter is great on breads and vegetables. Refrigerate leftovers.

Cook's Note:

I prefer to use 3 to 4 fresh garlic cloves in this recipe but when I run out of fresh, I use 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder.

As a fellow basil lover I have to say that this was fantastic! I did need to add a bit of olive oil to the blender to get everything to combine but that was my only change. This is great on bread steak corn on the cob and even pasta! This is a definite keeper YUM!!!!!! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More
