I was surprised that my food processor could handle half a recipe of this, but it did! I had to scrape it from the sides a little, but it made it easily! My basil was almost at its end-of-the-...

Pretty good, but a bit strong fo my taste.

Great easy to make sandwich spread. The volume of this recipe didn't work in my food processor, just wasn't enough of it, but my mortar and pestle made fast work of it.

Doesn't really come out creamy like the recipe claims. Just oil with basil and garlic in it. Tastes okay.
