Savoury frangipane - basil

Great recipe, can be tweaked to most flavours use as you would a dessert frangipane for tarts and the like.

Ingredients

  • 2 bunch basil - leaves only shocked in boiling water, (refreshed and squeezed dry)
  • 100gm Soft Butter
  • 100gm Multidextrin
  • 25gm Grounds Almonds
  • 75gm Pinenuts (ground in a thermo with ground almonds till all looks the same)
  • 50gm Flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • Pinch of fine grated parmesan
  • Seasoning

Method

Method
Finely chop the cold blanched basil.
Cream the butter with the multidextrin in the kitchen aid, beat in the ground nuts, add the eggs one at a time and mix in well, fold in the flour and parmesan.
Finally mix in the basil and season to taste.
