Ingredients

2 cups fresh basil leaves

3 T chopped fresh garlic

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

sea salt to taste

Directions

Wash and dry basil leaves and put in food processor. (This sauce can also be made with in small batches in a mortar and pestle if you’re feeling ambitious.)Add garlic and salt and process until basil is finely chopped (close to a minute, depending on your food processor.)Add oil and process only a few pulses (or remove the chopped basil to a bowl and stir in the oil, which is what I would do if I was only making one batch.)Place pistou into individual freezer-proof plastic containers with a tight lid.Drizzle a small amount of olive oil over the top of the pistou in each container.
