Basil is such a treat to have out of the growing season. I decided to try something different by incorporating HAMAMA Daikon Radish sprouts into my recipe and freeze small portions for meals in the winter. I use a small cookie scoop to ball them up and freeze for later use.

Ingredients:

 

- 1/4 cup almonds - 3 cloves garlic

- 1 1/2 cups fresh basil leaves

- 1/2 cup olive oil 

 

Instructions:

 

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
2. Place almonds on a cookie sheet, and bake for 10 minutes, or until lightly toasted.
3. In a food processor, combine toasted almonds, garlic, basil, olive oil, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Process until a coarse paste is formed.
4. Scoop out into ice cup size dollops to freeze on a cookie sheet.
