That tomato basil soup sounds fantastic, I'm super excited to try that one. I love basil lots, so I tried (unsuccessfully) to grow it in my garden this year, but I am starting an indoor herb garden. If you have any suggestions as to how to grow basil indoors...that would be a great article!

Basil is just very ok with any combination, one day I prepared a delicious pizza with some fish and I decorated it with basil leaves, and a little bit of oil, all the people was surprised with the nice taste of this plant, so I recommend it very much if you want to change the taste of a normal dish
