Ingredients

  • ½ cup brie 130 g with rind removed
  • 1 tsp chopped chives
  • ½ tsp chopped basil leaves + 12 whole leaves
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • 12 fresh strawberries
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic reduction sauce* 30 mL

Instructions

  • Prepare strawberries by removing the stems. Using a paring knife or strawberry huller, create a small hole in each strawberry in which to stuff the brie. Cut off a small portion of the bottom of each berry so that it can stand upright.
  • In a food processor, whip brie until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add chives, basil, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Scoop brie into a piping bag (or plastic bag with the tip cut off).
  • To assemble, place a basil leaf in each strawberry, then stuff with the brie mixture. Drizzle with balsamic reduction, and sprinkle with chopped chives and ground black pepper. This is best when not served ultra-cold, but closer to room temperature.

Notes

*You can either buy this or make it from regular balsamic vinegar. To make balsamic reduction, bring 1 cup to a low simmer for about 15 minutes, or until vinegar thickens and reduces in volume. The reduction sauce will thicken further once cooled.
