Thai basil is available year round.
This tropical variety of sweet basil provides the unusual basil flavor present in so many Thai dishes that it has come to be identified as "Thai basil", even though it can be found in Vietnamese and Laotian dishes in addition to Cambodian and Western recipes as well.
Thai Basil, "Siam Queen" is a compact plant with small thin green leaves and beautiful pink and purple flower spikes on red-purple stems. It has an assertive spicy and floral sweet flavor with a licorice aroma. The leaves, flowers and stems can all be used for culinary purposes.
Thai basil should be considered a complementary element to many raw applications, including salads and crudos as well as a finishing herb/spice for hot dishes. Add chopped fresh Thai basil to tomato-based pasta sauce. Cook Thai eggplant, roast duck, bamboo shoots and pumpkin in a coconut curry broth, then stir in 1 bunch of chopped Thai basil at the end of cooking. Thai basil is delicate and should be used immediately upon purchase.
In the culinary landscape, Thai basil is not just considered an herb. It is utilized as a vegetable within recipes in many types of dishes, including curries, stir-fried dishes, salads and soups. There are three types of basil commonly used in Thai cuisine: Bai horapa, Kra phao Thai holy basil and Manglak Thai lemon basil, all of which have similar but different basil qualities.
