Pronounced Basil Roo-ee, this wonderfully flavorful dish is the perfect summer appetizer. Basil and tomatoes are seasoned with jalapeno, garlic and sea salt. I received this recipe from a wonderful woman in our toddler playgroup. Serve with your favorite dippers such as baguette slices or pita chips.

Great Recipe for a dip for parties and for using up all that basil I grew this summer! It is about the consistency of hummus so you might be able to add some chick peas in place of some of the bread crumbs. Read More

This is very edible but as I have many times made a "Rouille" (pronounced the same) I find that this version fades in comparison. Read More

very good on crackers. I didn't add the Jalepeno (didn't have one) and instead added crushed red pepper. My husband loved it! Read More

I used this as a topping to baguette slices which I then broiled. As per other suggestions I cut back on the bread crumbs. Next time I will cut back on the garlic a bit too; it was a bit overpowering. Read More

It should be spelled "rouille" - though it's still pronounced "roo-EE." Read More
