Recipe for Chef Desi Szonntaugh's Basil Oil. Use this oil in to add extra flavor to sautés, salad dressings or sauces.


  • 1 cup canola or olive oil
  • 2 cups fresh basil


  1. Makes 1 About Cup
  2. Purée basil with oil in a blender or food processor. Cook the puree over low heat for about five minutes -- you don't want to cook the oil, you're just allowing the heat to release the basil's flavors. Strain the oil into a clean jar. The oil will keep, covered, in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks.
