Although basil is more commonly used in savory dishes, its sweet, aromatic flavors work beautifully with caramelized pineapple as a topping for frozen yogurt.
1 tablespoon butter
2 cups fresh pineapple chunks
1/4 cup amaretto or other nut-flavored liqueur
2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil leaves
1 pt. vanilla low-fat frozen yogurt
How to Make It
Melt butter in a medium frying pan over high heat. Add pineapple and cook until caramelized slightly, about 5 minutes. Add amaretto and cook until it resembles a syrup. Stir in basil. Scoop about 1/2 cup frozen yogurt into each of 4 serving dishes, then spoon warm pineapple mixture on top.
