Quick Recipe 1: Basil Chili Infused Oil

Over the next few weeks, I shall be posting real easy, super quick, and delicious recipes that incorporate very few ingredients, and will take under 5 minutes to whip up. Wait, I take that back. Let me make that 15 minutes or less, just to be on the safe side. 

This week, I present Basil Chili Infused Oil. All you need are five ingredients, four of which all of us almost always have somewhere in the house.... definitely in the kitchen pantry.... ;)


Note: There are no exact quantities to be used here. It's just personal preference. So adjust accordingly:

1. Oil of your choice (I like olive oil and avocado oil)

2. Fresh basil leaves

3. Garlic powder (fresh garlic may be used)

4. Chili flakes of your choice (I like reaper, scotch bonnet, ghost pepper, etc....)

5. Salt to taste

5 Ingredients


1. Take a bowl and put in the five ingredients (as shown in picture) into the bowl.

2. Place in microwave and heat for about a minute to 75 seconds (75 seconds= 1 min 15 secs.... ;)). The oil will have boiled and the flavors will have nicely infused into it.  

Oil plus salt, garlic, chili flakes, and basil


Serve with rustic bread. Can drizzle over pasta too for extra deliciousness.

Extra: The basil leaves will have crisped up- delicious!
