Organic dried basil is a lovely addition to so many recipes but it is probably best known for its place in Italian cooking. Dried basil is a cupboard staple and even the most novice cook can use it easily in a range of recipes – particularly in dishes with tomato as their base. Our organic basil is dried gently with warm air to preserve its nutrients and then cut finely. To make the best of your precious organic basil, add it at the end of cooking to preserve its nutritional value and flavour.
In Greek the name ‘basil’ comes from the word ‘basileus’ which translates as ‘King’ – its no wonder basil is considered the king of herbs when you take a look at its impressive nutritional content!
Dried basil can be added to dips and dressings for added flavour and can even be made into tea – a really versatile herb to have around. Try sprinkling it over homemade hummus or cannellini bean dip.
