Genovese Basil microgreens actually have a stronger taste than mature basil, are slightly sweeter, and more tender. Throw in the fact that basil microgreens have over 3 times the nutrients of grown plants and we have the perfect herb! The most popular use is in italian dishes and sauces, especially in genovese sauce and pesto. Genovese Basil goes great in caprese salads and on raw tomatoes for a light, healthy "summery" treat. Mix basil leaves with olive oil and freeze in ice-cube trays for flavored oils when cooking.
