For the strawberry soup
Preparation time: 30 min
- General preparationCut the strawberries into small pieces. Set aside the smaller basil leaves for garnish.
- Strawberry soup preparationFor the syrup, pour the sugar and water in a saucepan and boil the mixture. When the water begins to boil and the sugar has melted, remove pan from heat, add the basil leaves (taking care to keep those aside for decoration), steep 5 minutes, remove the leaves and then let cool your syrup in the refrigerator or an ice bath. When the syrup is cold, fold in the strawberry mixture and let steep 30 minutes.
- To serveArrange strawberries in small glasses and pour syrup on top, garnish with a basil leaf and serve chilled.
To make a herb infusion that is very flavorful without being bitter, proceed the same way as for tea: hot liquid poured over the herb and infused a few minutes only.
