A coulis is a great way to add flavor to your dish whether it’s a dessert or something savory. You know when you go to restaurant and you get a slice of cheesecake and it has 3 to 4 little dots of strawberry liquid. It’s puree’d strawberries aka strawberry coulis. Today, I’m making a basil coulis from fresh basil leaves. Great for chicken (put a little squirt on the chicken then drizzle around the plate), tomato soup, pork….make your food fancy and delicious. Let’s Cook!
Ingredients. Basil. Salt. Garlic. Olive Oil.
Step 1. Pick off the basil leaves from the stems and add 1 cup to the food processor
Step 2. Add a few pinches of salt.
Step 3. Add 2 tablespoons of your favorite olive oil.
Step 4. Add a few crushed up garlic cloves. The amount of everything totally depends on what flavors you like. If you’re not a huge fan of garlic don’t add garlic.
Keep pulsing until you get your desired consistency. Some people like a little texture and some people like it to be smooth.
