As you may remember, last time we spoke of my basil plant, it was doing very well. Last night I harvested for the first time! See how well it was doing?
Practically a basil-forest! I went overboard on the harvest and clipped far more than I was able to use in dinner.
Here is what we had:
So good! One of my friends brought this salad to a party, and it was so good I asked for the recipe. It came from here, but my friend seemed to have changed a lot of things, so I didn't follow the recipe too carefully anyway. Basically it is lentils and couscous with garlic vinaigrette, and then I added chopped basil, mint, tomatoes, goat cheese, and lots of spinach. I actually also added a little chicken per Glenn's request, but he didn't even get a piece of chicken in his first serving because it was all kind of at the bottom, and he loved it right off the bat!
