Peppery and sweet with a subtle mint flavour, Sweet Basil is a versatile accompaniment to most dishes.
Basil is virtually calorie-free and, in addition to antioxidant vitamins and phenolics, is a rich source of vitamin K, zinc, calcium, magnesium, potassium and dietary fibre.
A lovely accent to many dishes such as tomatoes, cheeses, salads, pesto, pizza, pasta and deserts.
