A quick, easy and gorgeous snack. Creamy, delicious and made in a minute. A great addition to your entertaining repertoire. One of our biltong powder tubs will give you more than enough for this recipe, so either double up or keep the left overs in the freezer (for up to 2 months)

  • 1 cup biltong powder.
  • a handful of fresh basil, finely cut.
