Green Teeth and Garlic BreathMy turn! I dutifully acquired the lovely heads:
I used a little fresh basil and a little dried, because I was too cheap to buy a full head of basil at the store. As a consequence, I gutted this poor plant:
It was kind of hard to take care of anyway. I'll keep watering it, and if it grows back, more power to it. I think I need to try again with the fresh herb cultivation.
Check out the steamy goodness!
This was really easy to make, so much so that I also made Tabbouleh and a strawberry dessert at the same time, not because I wanted them all to go together but because I am new to buying produce and I totally overbought a bunch of things I didn't want to go to waste.
Here is the finished product over whole wheat linguine:
I admit it didn't look like much in anyone's pictures, and it doesn't look that thrilling here, but it is OH SO GOOD. I put two cloves of garlic, some ground flax seeds, and plenty of olive oil in mine, and this was gobbled up fast. I had enough left over to fill a pesto-style container from the store. I am looking forward to sharing this with my roommates, who I think will enjoy it.
UPDATE: I used pine nuts. They really give it a nice kick. Doesn't it look like other "herbs" could easily be mingled in to this dish? (joke.)
