Five Ingredient Friday (Basil Bread)
It's that time again, but before I post my recipe I thought I'd ask if you like my new Five Ingredients Friday image! Oronzo is showing me how to use Photoshop and I modified this picture all by myself. I like it much better than my old one. Feel free to use this image if you're posting a Five Ingredients Friday recipe!
Okay, on to the recipe. I found this one on-line and I haven't tried it yet, but I'm going to!
1 cup fresh basil leaves, slightly packed
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts (toast by heating in nonstick skillet on medium heat, stirring often, until golden brown)
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
10 inch-thick slices of French or sourdough bread, preferably made with part whole-wheat flour
1. Put all of the ingredients except the bread in a small food processor. Pulse briefly to blend well.
2. Spread about 1/2 tablespoon spread on each bread slice and place on foil-lined cookie sheet. Broil about 6 inches from heat, watching carefully, until spread is bubbly and lightly brown (two-three minutes).
