Equipment

  • Food processor
  • Spatular

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Greek Yogurt can use low fat
  • 2 cups basil leaves Note 1
  • 2-3 cloves garlic skin peeled and end removed
  • ½ tsp cracked pepper
  • ¼ tsp salt

Instructions

  • Add basil, garlic, salt and pepper to the food processor with dice blade, plus for 2-3 seconds to blitz
  • Remove the lid of the food processor, dollop in yogurt, place the lid back on and blitz for 2-3 seconds (or until consistently combined)
  • Recipe makes 1 cup of sauce and will keep in the fridge for 7-10 days (sealed air tight container) The sauce is not suitable to freeze

Notes

  • Note 1 If using store bought basil, I recommend using the stems and leaves of the basil. This is because the stems are very soft. When growing basil and harvesting regularly the basil stems get thicker and tougher. When I am using homegrown basil, I use the leaves and stems only if they are the thinner more soft stems (discard any thick stems).
