I think I found a plant that is impossible for me to kill: basil.
A few weeks ago, I went to a media event on stressing the importance of play for both kids and adults. There were different play stations set up, one of which was a "gardening" station. We picked an herb, potted the seeds, and got to take our pot home. I promptly set my pot of basil on the back porch and forgot about it. (Okay, I watered it a few times.)
But grow that little plant did until there were enough basil leaves for me to use in cooking.
And I found the perfect recipe in the June 2015 issue of Better Homes and Gardens: Grilled Chicken with Basil Chimichurri. (As I typed this, my husband saw the picture of this and said, "Can we have that again tonight?")
The original recipe didn't call for green beans, but it was clear in the original picture that green beans (or beans of some sort) were on the plate, so I snipped the ends off of fresh green beans, salted them, tossed them in EVOO, and then baked them on a baking sheet in a 350-degree oven for 15 minutes.
Delicious! What are some of your favorite ways to use basil?
