Good Morning Foodie friends! It was a beauty on the farm. What a delicious smell in the greenhouse. Our Genovese Basil is looking lush and standing proud next to rows and rows of tomato plants What a perfect pairing. Genovese basil is an Italian style herb which has a delicious flavour & aroma! It's popular in Italy for making fresh pesto!
Lunch prep in the farm kitchen smells absolutely delicious. I am using harvested basil and red onions to create a fresh versatile salsa.
Today, I have taken the fresh salsa featuring the Genovese basil and tossed in quinoa and made a fresh salad to beat the heat. With the left over quinoa, I decided to get a little creative and share with you. These Crispy Quinoa Cakes with Fresh Basil, Tomatoes & Onion are delicious and great as an appetizer or as a main.
