Product Details

  1. Cooking and Seasoning: Basil is a popular herb used to season a variety of dishes. It is a key ingredient in Mediterranean, Italian, and Thai cuisines. Fresh basil leaves are often added to sauces, soups, stews, and salads for flavor.

  2. Pesto Sauce: One of the classic uses of basil is in the preparation of pesto sauce. Basil, along with ingredients like garlic, pine nuts, Parmesan cheese, and olive oil, is blended to create a flavourful and vibrant sauce that can be used with pasta, sandwiches, and more.

  3. Caprese Salad: Basil is a key component of the famous Caprese salad, where fresh basil leaves are combined with tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and balsamic glaze for a refreshing and simple dish.

  4. Pizza Topping: Fresh basil leaves are often used as a pizza topping, particularly in Margherita pizzas. The heat from the oven enhances the herb's aroma and flavour.

  5. Tomato-Based Dishes: Basil pairs well with tomatoes, and it is commonly used in tomato-based dishes such as marinara sauce, tomato soups, and bruschetta.

  6. Herb Infusions: Basil can be used to infuse oils, vinegars, and even water with its distinctive flavour. Basil-infused oils, for example, are used in salad dressings and for drizzling over dishes.

  7. Asian Cuisine: Thai basil is commonly used in Southeast Asian cuisines, adding a unique flavour to dishes like Thai curries, stir-fries, and noodle dishes.

  8. Herb Butter: Basil can be incorporated into herb butter, which is then used to flavour meats, vegetables, or spread on bread.

  9. Beverages: Basil is sometimes used to flavor beverages, including lemonades, cocktails, and herbal teas. It adds a refreshing and aromatic note.

  10. Desserts: While basil is more commonly associated with savoury dishes, it can be used in certain desserts, particularly those that feature fruit. Basil-infused syrups or sugars can be used to sweeten and flavour desserts.

  11. Garnish: Fresh basil leaves make a beautiful and aromatic garnish for a wide range of dishes, adding both visual appeal and flavour.
