There are so many flavor nuances in Fireball Basil (which is why it's such a personal favorite!) that my tastebuds often lead me to want to add a little something sweet to balance the heat.
I've selected rutabaga to pair with gala apple in this blended hot and steamy soup. Rutabaga is creamy and brings with it a peppery horseradish flavor that I love. Gala apple tones him down with just the perfect balance of sweetness without being overwhelming. Roasted almond butter blended in for the perfect amount of nuttiness and richness. Hot or cold the choice is yours!
