Basil paste

I came across this recipe while looking for an alternative breakfast recipes. This paste sounded really perfect to me - something new, quick and easy to make. And - believe me, it tastes really, really good - some of you may know flavoured butters (smaksełko? ;) ) - they were extremely popular some time ago and very tasty, though I can't find it in any shop, can you? This is not a butter, as it is made of cottage cheese. Though I'm sure it would be same delicious as a butter! It is perfect for example with: fresh, hot bread/rolls, with cold meats, tomatoes, for brushetta, ciabatta bread... :)
Recipe, slightly changed, comes from this website.

  • 250g of cottage cheese (low-, semi- or full-fat)
  • a bunch of fresh basil
  • 1/2-1 clove of garlic
  • 8 tablespoons of oil 
  • 1 teaspoon of black ground pepper
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of sichuan pepper

  1. Put the cheese in a bowl, add spices (black pepper, salt, sichuan pepper). 
  2. Take a blender and its bowl (or any bowl suitable for blending), put basil, garlic and oil inside, blend till smooth (or almost smooth). 
  3. Mix basil paste with cottage cheese, blend till smooth.
  4. Store closed in the fridge.
  5. Bon Appetit! :)
