Purple basil, also known as dark opal basil or purple leaf basil, is a variety of basil (Ocimum basilicum) with striking deep purple or burgundy-colored leaves. It belongs to the same basil species as the more common green basil, but its distinctive color and slightly different flavor make it a popular choice for both culinary and ornamental purposes.
Culinary Uses: Purple basil can be used in a variety of culinary applications, just like green basil. Some common uses include:
- Garnish: Purple basil’s vibrant color makes it an excellent garnish for salads, soups, pasta dishes, and various other recipes, adding a pop of color and visual appeal.

- Herb Butter: You can use purple basil to make herb butter, which can be spread on bread or used to flavor various dishes.
