In which dishes can you use basil cut?


Basil is very suitable for quite a few (mainly Italian) dishes. It forms a unique team with the tomato. Combining these two always leads to a resounding success. You can use the herb in soups and sauces, on pizzas and in pasta dishes. But it is also great to combine basil with different types of meat, mainly chicken and veal. Do you use basil cut instead of fresh basil? Then add half of the amount indicated in the recipe. Dried herbs have a stronger flavour than fresh basil.



Where does basil cut come from?


The herbal plant grows mainly in moderately warm climates. Approximately a thousand years ago basil plants moved from countries around the Mediterranean Sea in this direction. Since then, it has been indispensable in our kitchens. The basil cut, which you can order online at Natural Spices, is a handy alternative to the fresh herb. You will always have a stock of this delicious dried seasoning at home.



How healthy is basil?


Basil is an herb that contains a lot of vitamins and minerals. Especially vitamins A and K are well represented. As far as minerals are concerned, it contains a lot of potassium, iron and magnesium. The drying of basil has virtually no effect on its nutritional value, so basil is considered to be very healthy. It contains anti-inflammatory substances and works against harmful bacteria.
