  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh basil leaves
  • Pepper

  9. Use a basting brush to spread the infused butter over the tops of the slices.
  10. Season with pepper and the Rooibos tea / salt mixture.
  11. Bake for about 25 minutes or until soft.
  12. Place on a platter and garnish with basil.
