Delicious, adaptable recipe that's great for using up summer's basil overload. You can use any protein here-ground pork, ground turkey, tofu, sliced beef or chicken. Top with grated carrot, cilantro, and a squeeze of lime juice.

  4. Fold in basil leaves and stir to combine.
  5. Serve over rice. Top with grated carrot, cilantro and a squeeze of lime juice if you want.
