Think Beyond Pesto With These Basil-Centric Recipes

January 29, 2015 6:11 pm

Let’s talk about basil. It’s one of the most popular herbs, but its uses are often limited to pesto, Italian pastas, and not a whole lot else. Whether you have an overgrown basil pot or you simply want to experiment with more basil-heavy dishes, there are a number of different ways to incorporate this fresh, flavorful herb into your cooking. Here are just a few exciting basil recipes.

Grilled Tuna with Basil Butter and Fresh Tomato Sauce [MyRecipes]
If your mouth is already watering at just the thought of basil butter, you’ll be even more enthralled when you find out how easy it is to make. Combined with the hearty tuna and zesty tomato sauce, this is a unique entree with basil as the main attraction.

Succotash Salad [The Kitchn]
Channel your inner Southerner with this lighter version of succotash. Corn, beans, and grape tomatoes provide some favorite summer flavors, while basil and feta cheese are the perfect accompaniments.

Apricot-and-Basil Shortbread Tart [HuffPost]
Few things are more indulgent than a freshly baked pastry, and this one has a shortbread influence that tastes rich and buttery. Roasted apricots sit atop a layer of creamy custard, and basil brings a cool flavor to this otherwise sweet treat. The finished tart looks rustic and attractive, which makes it the ideal dessert for an outdoor dinner party.
