It's a newish restaurant in a wonderful neighborhood that I love. What I love most, and what I've converted many friends to, is their basil ice cream. It's just sweet enough to satisfy that after dinner sweet tooth, but so refreshing and light. One taste and you'll be hooked.
I've never seen it at my grocery store, so a couple nights ago when a strong craving came on, I made my own.
It couldn't be more easy. Here's what you'll need:
-Vanilla Ice Cream
-Fresh Basil * Trader Joes (and Harmons if you live in Utah) sells this Dorot brand, which comes minced, cubed & frozen. Perfect!
-wooden spoons * you knew that wooden spoons make ice cream taste better, right? okay good.
place one cube of basil in bowl (1 cube = 1tsp.)
*if you can't get the frozen Dorot cubes, I would recommend using fresh basil and a good food processor so that you don't have large pieces or strings of basil in the ice cream. You could even make your own basil freezer cubes!
break up basil with spoon
add about 1 cup of vanilla ice cream
Don't be afraid to try this because it has basil in it!
It's soooo delicious. All my kids, even the twins, loved this. I'll be curious to see if you do too.
