Basil is rich in essential oils. Basil is a slightly peppery tasting spice plant. Basil is often used in Italian and French cuisine. Basilkum goes particularly well with tomatoes, tomato sauce, pasta, meat and fish. It is important that fresh basil is never cooked, but is only served shortly before the end of the cooking time, otherwise it loses its aroma.
