You never know where you will pick up a little prepping trick. I was watching the food network the other day, and the host was talking about knives, and cutting up some basil. I was taking notes on the cutlery AND his basil rolling. (I know, I'm such a multi-tasker!!) Here is a little trick for your Friday afternoon. Now you will be cutting your basil in a flash, and you will look like a pro!
First, wash your basil and remove from stem. Make a stack of leaves.
Next, roll the leaves into a little burrito. (Don't worry it's a "Paleo" burrito. ;) )
Finally, cut into the roll to get evenly slivered pieces of basil.
Add to your favorite recipe and enjoy!
