Carrot & Basil cream

This is a lovely golden puree or cream that can be eaten warm or cold as a complement to other food items. One suggestion would be to serve roasted asparagus garnished with the Carrot & Basil cream – both colourful and delicious!

Ingredients:

  • 2 carrots
  • 1/2 butternut squash
  • 1 potato (medium size)
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 4-6 basil leaves
  • 1 TBS olive oil
  • 1 TBS sea salt

 

Peel and cut the carrot, squash and potato into small cubes. Pour the oil into a pan and fry the garlic until golden. Then add the carrot, squash, potato and sea salt and fry until golden, then add water and boil everything together.

When it is soft, put everything into a blender and add the fresh basil leaves and blend it.

Serve in a bowl and done! You can eat it warm or cold as you like!

Enjoy, feel & eat!

Blue Basil & Lemon Fish Sauce

Ingredients (2 minutes preparation):

  • 6-8 Blue Basil leaves
  • ½ Cup Olive Oil
  • ½ Lemon
  • 2 tsp Himalayan Salt

Cut the basil leaves and add the cut leaves and olive oil to a small pan and heat together for a minute or two to infuse the oil. You can let it cool a bit and then, in a bowl, combine with the juice of the 1/2 lemon (squeeze the lemon) and Himalayan salt, mix together.

Pour on top of your cooked fish and accompanying sides.

This is a fresh, easy and healthy fish sauce I used for a meal of grilled sardines and vegetables.

Basil is known as:

  • Immune system booster
  • Hear health promoter
  • Antibacterial protector
  • Health GI tract promoter

And many more health qualities…

Enjoy, feel and eat!
