Verrine de Fraise au Basilique ( Basil Strawberry)

I was cutting and dicing strawberry this evening for tomorrow dinner party when my sweet daughter said: “Mom, can I please have some?” I was not about to refuse. Lisa and Theo will eat fruits, but you have to remind them to do so.. and when there are better choices available, you guessed it;-), that’s not fruit that they will eat.


So even though I was dicing those strawberry for my tomorrow’s white chocolate strawberry verrine, I let her have some.

I however “season” them with fresh basil.

You should try! It is very refreshing and it enhances the strawberry flavor.

Ingredients for 4: 4 cups of diced strawberry, 4 Tbsp of sugar, 24 leaves of basil finely chopped or 4 tsp of chopped basil.

In a bowl, mix together the strawberry, the Basil,  and the sugar.


Spoon the mixture in little bowls. Add a dollop of whipped cream ( I used bought whipped cream), and sprinkle more basil on top of the cream. Serve with meringues if you desire.

Bon Appetit!
