Basil Genovese Microgreens
Add a pinch of chopped Basil herbs to a Bloody Mary or garnish a traditional cocktail with this aromatic herb. Bunched Basil is best used when added to sauces, pasta salads and meats, such as grilled fish or roasted chicken. In addition, due to this herb being fairly delicate, use it to make a paste or to splay or decorate a plate before serving up the main course. Compliment the citrus flavours by pairing with tomatoes, garlic, onion, pear, mint and strawberry. Basil is an aromatic herb used whole, chopped, or crushed in a wide variety of savoury and sweet dishes. The edible leaves are most commonly used raw and are lightly torn, tossed into grain salads and noodle dishes. Specialty Produce suggests to layer the herb on toast with creamy spreads, place inside sandwiches, infuse into oils, or blend into sauces such as pesto.
