Beautifully fragrant Basil to add flavour to any dish. With an almost-minty freshness because of its essential oils, it compliments meat dishes & soups as well as the Vietnamese noodle soup, phở.
Most often associated with Italian food, especially pesto, basil has many other culinary uses: add to tomatoes, stuffing, soups, stews & pasta. It’s an important ingredient in our blends, notably our Thai Rub & Steak Rub.
For a quick tomato sauce, fry some sliced garlic (or just use our Garlic oil to save time), a tin of chopped tomatoes & 1 tsp of basil. In just 5 minutes, you’ve got a quick & tasty sauce to run through pasta.
