Dr Oz: Fresh Basil & Garlic Puree Recipe

Top Chef Michael Gulotta says basil and garlic are 2 key elements in his 5-star dishes, so he makes what he calls Chef Mike’s Frozen Herb Puree. Place 15 basil leaves, 3 garlic cloves, and 2 ½ cups of olive oil into a blender and puree it. Olive oil keeps in the freshness. Store the puree in the fridge. Use it to brighten up flavors of any dish. You can also pour the puree into an ice tray and freeze. (The olive oil will protect the freshness and flavor.) When making spaghetti or any other dish, just pop out one cube and melt into the dish. The use of herbs will reduce the amount of salt in your diet.

Dr Oz: Adobo Marinade Recipe

Chef Jose Garces (You may remember him from the Food Network’s Iron Chef) said he liked a little acid and heat when it came to boosting flavors of his dishes. You can use cider vinegar and chipotle chili for any meat or pork. For a delicious marinate, mix 1 cup veggie oil, 1 cup cider vinegar, 6 chipotle chilies, 4 Tbsp thyme leaves and 6 garlic cloves.
