About Organic Fresh Basil

Basil is one of the most frequently used culinary herbs. It is crucial to Italian cooking, and often called for in French, Indian, Asian, and Greek cuisine as well. Cooking destroys much of the flavour so it is best added at the end of cooking. If you wrap fresh basil in a barely damp paper towel and store in a plastic bag in the refrigerator, it should last for about four to five days. Alternatively, you can freeze the basil in ice cube trays covered with either water or stock that can be added when preparing soups or stews.

Basil is an excellent source of vitamin K and a very good source of iron, calcium and vitamin A. In addition, basil is a good source of dietary fibre, manganese, magnesium, vitamin C and potassium.

The word basil comes from the Greek "basileus," which means "sovereign". Legend has basil growing over the spot where Saints Constantine and Helen found the True Cross.

I love it when I can get fresh basil instead of having to use dried - much nicer. I would love to grow my own, but everything I try to grow ends up dead! Definitely don't have green fingures.

Raw Vegan Alkalising Green Soup Recipe

Summary: This is a basic raw vegan green soup that you can customise to your very own personal preference. I like to use spinach as my greens, but feel free to substitute weeds or your favourite greens if you wish. You can use more or less of tomato / cucumber / celery if you wish, add other vegetables like yellow bell pepper or courgette ; different seeds or even seed butter (nuts / nut butter for a non nut-free soup). The Spirulina is packed with nutrition : vitamins, minerals, protein, iron, beta-carotene, antioxidants and even essential fatty acids ! And because it is so rich in Chlorophyll, it is a great superfood to add to your diets if you don't consistently eat (or drink) your greens. But the soup is absolutely delicious without it too. Great for a light and refreshing lunch or snack, or as a starter. And you will be surprised, but many children actually love it !

Pasta alla Genovese

Summary: Homemade pesto is delicious and incredibly easy to make (it can be done in less than 2 minutes), and will enable you to create many tasty dishes like this traditional pesto alla genovese. Pesto a la genovese is traditionally served with trofie pasta, a short twisted pasta from Genova. If you don't have trofie, spaghetti, tagliatelle or fusilli will work too.
