Basil, Sweet, Dry

(Basil, Sweet, Dry)  Basil is an aromatic seasoning of the Mint family, but it does not have any minty flavor.  It is commonly used as a seasoning with tomatoes and in salad dressings.  We like it in our chili and other similarly flavored dishes.  See the nutritional chart below which is for ground dry basil leaves.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-7)
