HOW TO ENJOY
Basil is one of the most popular of herbs for good reason.
For best results pair basil with fresh or dried tomatoes and sweet peppers. Tomato sauces in the form of gravy for meat are no exception here.
Just one pinch of basil will give a new taste to beans and legume based.
Basil goes especially well with beef and lamb. Lying in the marinade with this spicy herb, the meat becomes tender and retains its natural aroma during subsequent heat treatment.
Basil is also great mixed with other herbs, for example basil and cloves perfectly complement each other's aroma.
It should be noted that when cooking dishes, in which this herb is required in large quantities (except for marinades), the seasoning must be added, a couple of minutes before the end of cooking. This will help retain more essential oils.
