Sweet Basil Leaves
Sweet Basil Leaves are a very popular and well known herb. Basil is most often thought of as an Italian spice, used in tomato-based sauces and marinara. But it is very common in French cooking as well. It is found in Bouquet Garni, Herbs de Provence and Fines Herbs, as well as in our Italian Seasoning Blend.
Use Basil to season tomato sauces, salad dressings, cold pasta salads, grilled fish and roasted chicken. Add it to marinades, soups and stews. Basil is delicious sprinkled over garden tomatoes with fresh mozzarella or feta cheese. Basil is also a main ingredient for pesto.
Basil is also used in salad dressings and infused olive oils when an herb flavor is needed.
