More Basil

It has only been 2 weeks since the last time I harvested Basil from the garden and again this morning the plants seemed to have suddenly doubled in size.

From the (19) Basil plants that I have , (15) are big enough to harvest: from (3) Sweet Basil, (8) Purple Basil and (4) Spiced Basil I cut about (8) cups of leaves. This time I ran the leaves, with a bit of olive oil, through the food processor; processing eight cups of leaves yielded about a pint of Basil.

Tonight I am making a Roasted Cauliflower and Garlic Soup for dinner, a teaspoon or so of my Basil harvest should be just the right touch.
