The original version of this recipe came from my friend Marsha, who is a raw foodie. So, for any other raw foodie friends, omit all of the cooked stuff and viola! 🙂
This recipe kills two birds with one stone. It’s a great way to make use of a whole bunch of basil AND to disguise the horrid flavor of flax seed oil, which is really really good for you but really really hard to choke down. It’s actually delicious.
