Basil Me Happy

This brilliant herb blend of basil, thyme, and sage brings everyday dishes to life.

Pasta.

Zoodles.

Spaghetti squash

Scrambled eggs.

Salmon.

It’s reminiscent to pesto. I added it to my scrambled eggs the other morning and fell in love.

Ingredients

Fresh basil

Fresh sage

Fresh thyme

Clove of garlic

Himalayan pink salt

Black and white pepper

1 tablespoon Primal Palate - Amore seasoning (any Italian seasoning)

Instructions

In a small food chopper (I use KitchenAid 3.5 Cup Food Chopper) fill to the top basil leaves, a few thyme leaves, one sage leaf, garlic, and seasonings. Chop. Taste. In my previous recipes, I always stress to taste as you go. This herb mix is a favorite with my boys. When I use it with noodles or veggies, I add light tasting olive oil. I add more of the Amore seasoning to the noodles or vegetables. The mix goes perfectly with scrambled eggs and toast. It saves great in the fridge.

Easy. Aromatic. Soy-Free.

Simple Chimichurri

Garlic. Cilantro. Red pepper. Be still my culinary heart. A little Instagram photo love below.

It’s a versatile sauce — meat, fish, or vegetables.

Ingredients

1/2 cup light tasting olive oil (garlic infused olive oil is an option)

2 cloves of garlic

1/4 red pepper

Fresh parsley

Fresh cilantro

Lemon juice (preferably fresh)

Salt & pepper

Directions

Chop 1 cup of cilantro and 1 cup of parsley. I use herb scissors to pre-cut before putting them in my food chopper.

Add garlic, red pepper, and seasonings. I go by taste with the salt and pepper. Palates are different.

Chop.

Pour in the olive oil and lemon juice. I squeeze 1/2 a lemon in.

Chop.

Taste.

Add more salt and pepper if need be.
