One of the simplest and most elegant dessert recipes around, Strawberries with Basil is also one of the most refreshing and nutritious treats you’ll ever come across. No sugar, no flour, no butter and no cream are used. Only two basic ingredients: basil and strawberries! Taste the essence of fresh strawberries dressed in its own juice with a sublime basil flavoring that highlights the sweetness of the strawberries and gives it a minty and aromatic smell. You can easily make this after a busy day to treat yourself with a luscious dessert or whenever fresh strawberries are available.

You simply have to try this unique recipe at least once and prepare it for your family or guests. It only takes ten minutes to make and unbelievably easy to do.

Half of the strawberries are made into a coulis or sauce while the other half is sliced into halves or quarters to be served with the coulis poured over them. The coulis is made using a blender or food processor, pureeing the strawberries with the chopped basil leaves until you get a thick yummy sauce.

This red fruit and green aromatic herb are an exquisite combination that has the perfect balance of sweetness, tanginess, and minty flavor. Because no sugar is added in the recipe, it is best to get great quality sweet strawberries that are firm and are a bright luscious red. Make this when strawberries are in season, which is typically June until mid August. New farming methods, however, extend the strawberry season from April until December so there’s plenty of time to make and enjoy this gourmet dessert. Take pleasure in this simple luxury with a nice glass of dessert wine like Maury.

A very brilliant kind of recipe which is good for people who are in diet. Good to recommend for those who love to eat strawberries too. Strawberry is also an antioxidant.

Strawberry is my favorite fruit ever since I was a kid. I’m a fan of cooking strawberry recipes and I always keep on researching strawberry recipes. Until one time, by chance I got into this site and I was so pleased to have found this recipe. I cooked it immediately and prepared one for my mom and me. This was really easy to make, we all knew how delicious and nutritious strawberries are so this recipe will definitely be on our list.
