Basil Mania

We are so chuffed with our little basil plants! We started from seeds, and now have juvenile plants almost 10 cm high - we just can’t wait to use those fragrant leaves in some of our dishes!

The progress of our basil plants so far…

Here is a simple and quick recipe using fresh basil:

Torn Basil Salad

Fresh Basil Leaves (a handful)
Fresh Baby tomatoes (a handful)
Black or green olives (to your taste)
Olive Oil (optional)
Balsamic Vinegar (optional)
Salt & Pepper

Tear the baby tomatoes, basil leaves and pitted olives into bite size pieces. Toss lightly. Season with salt, pepper, olive oil & balsamic vinegar to taste
