Spicy Basil Oil

This is an oil that we like to use pretty often. Make preferably in small batches.
Basil adds an aromatic sweet yet savory taste and then the red pepper flakes adds a nice kick to the oil. 

It can be drizzled on garlic bread, pizzas, soup, grilled meats or used in salad dressings, on sandwiches, mixed in mayonnaise…the options are limitless.

You need:
4 ounces olive oil
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
7 large basil leaves
salt (optional)
Olive Oil, Basil and Red Pepper Flakes
Put all ingredients in a small food processor and liquefy. I used a plastic cup and a hand held immersion blender.

Use other herbs as well. The sky is the limit.

This yields ½ cup. VoilĂ . How easy was that! Really!
