Reanaclaire Cooks Dish With Basil Leaves

I LOVE THE SMELL OF BASIL LEAVES.....According to Nancy, they are easy to grow, no need pampering so since she has lots of them in her garden, I requested for some....Not Some but MORE of these leaves!  Yes, give me more, I said... hahahaha...   But I cannot be too greedy because they might not last that long if I do not use them within a couple of days.  Some people cannot stand the smell of Basil, as for me, I can even eat them in my  noodles soup.

Since I have some minced meat in my fridge, it would be best to mix them with basil leaves among other ingredients.... This dish reminds me of a Thai Dish which I ate in Penang...
Other ingredients such as.... 
Garlic, ginger, cilipadi, basil leaves and minced meat.... 
I sauteed alla the above first except for the basil which went in last.... 
Oh yeah, I added in some white wine too, soy sauce... a dash of salt.... 
Keep stirring and making noise with the ladle....
And the dish is ready to be served!
Yes, it was a dry version... keep it that way.... 
Best eaten with white porridge... 
Dinner for two is served... 
Two steamed dishes and one hot spicy dish!
*My portion of rice*

    Mamarazzi once gave me a pot of basil plant, for us to enjoy cooking with but alas... it didn't survive for long.
    No more fresh basil at home!

  4. Claire, I think you cook just as good as the restaurants you eat at!! I LOVE basil too! I love the smell, and put it in everything, even soup. But I have never tried fresh, always use dry in the little jar. I need to try the fresh this summer!
