HEALTH BENEFITS OF GERBS DRIED BASIL LEAVES
Basil Leaves are a highly fragrant plant whose leaves are used as a seasoning herb for many different types of foods. Basil has become one of the most recognizable herbs ever since pesto, the mixture of basil, pine nuts and Parmesan cheese, has become popular. Basil has round leaves that are oftentimes pointed. They are green in color, although some varieties feature hints of red or purple. Basil looks a little like peppermint, which is not surprising since they belong to the same plant family.
- One tablespoon of dried basil (which is roughly the same amount) provides 4% of the vitamin A, 43% of vitamin K, and 2% of vitamin C. It has about 33mg of omega-3 fatty acids.
- Dried basil has a more concentrated flavor than fresh basil. Thus, whenever you use dried basil as an alternative in recipe demands fresh basil, use only one-third of the amount specified. The golden thumb rule is 1 tsp dried basil = 1 tbsp fresh basil.
- Dried herbs tend to do best if they’re added during cooking so their flavor has time to infuse the whole dish.
