A leafy, green herb that is a member of the mint family of plants. Providing an intense but sweet and subtle flavor, Basil is a very common ingredient used in Mediterranean cooking. Containing an fragrance similar to cloves, Basil can be dried and used during months when it may not be available in some regions, but it provides the most flavor when served fresh. Basil goes well with pasta, eggs, poultry, fish, soups, and stews. It is a good herb to pair with beans, peas, tomatoes, carrots, eggplant, and zucchini.
