Over-run with basil

Discussion in 'Cookery' started by sarahocfc, Jun 3, 2011.

  1. My basil plant is out of control. Obviously I don't want it to go to waste, so does anyone have any handy hints as to what to do with it?! I use it in tomato-based sauces, which we have 1-2 times a week, but it just seems to be a never-ending.
    Any suggestions welcome.

    Pesto - so versatile, try baking aubergine slices brushed with oil and then spread with pesto and parmesan and baked again
    Soupe au Pistou
    Tomatoes fried in butter with basil and cream on toast
    Added to a Thai curry
