Spicy Basil Oil

Recipe by Heaven on Hearth


4 ounces olive oil

¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes

7 large basil leaves

salt (optional)


Put all ingredients in a small food processor and liquefy. I used a plastic cup and a hand immersion blender.

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


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