Thai basil is a popular cooking herb, especially in Southeast Asian cuisines. It adds freshness and a bold, slightly spicy flavour to many Asian dishes, whether it's infused in curries and sauces or used as a fresh garnish.
Thai basil also offers several healing benefits, thanks to its anti-bacterial properties. This herb contains many vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, C, and E, fibre, and antioxidants.
