strawberry olive oil and basil soup with a twist

First stawberries are back on the market !!

To celebrate their arrival I thought of a recipe that I admit might be quite surprising at first sight !

But strawberries really do get along with olive oil and basil !
To add a little twist I used japanese sake and blackcurrant cream liquor.

You can serve it as a dessert by itself or with a chocolate cake, simply divine !
Why not for breakfast on a french toast ?!

Serves : 4

Here's what we need :

500g good stawberries, 4 tablespoons olive oil, 150g brown sugar, 2 teaspoons sake, 2 tablespoons blackcurrant cream liquor, 10 drops basil essential oil.

Here's what we do :

Wash the strawberries under cold water.

Remove the green and cut them in 4 lenghtwise.

In a saucepan on medium heat, pour olive oil and heat.

Add the strawberries with sugar, stir gently for 5 minutes.

Add sake, blackcuuant cream liquor and basil essential oil, stir.

Heat for 15 minutes.

Put aside until cold and store in fridge.

                                                                                                                                   relax, savour & share!

  2. Interesting recipe! Looks so good!

  3. I've enjoyed strawberry salads in the past, but strawberries and basil is certainly new to me. Still, I'd welcome this combination of flavors!
