Is a basil vegan?

Basil, also known as sweet basil, is a popular herb with a distinct, sweet aroma and flavor. It is a member of the mint family and has green, glossy leaves that are slightly oval in shape. Basil is commonly used in Italian cuisine, particularly in tomato-based dishes like pizza and pasta sauce. It is also a key ingredient in pesto and is often used to flavor soups, stews, and salads. Basil is rich in antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties, making it a popular herb in traditional medicine. Additionally, it is easy to grow and can be grown both indoors and outdoors in a variety of climates.
