What can be easier to put together than a sandwich? Delicious garlic and sweet basil spread and gooey brie make a great combination, and because brie always pairs with something sweet, this spread has that subtle sweetness from the honey. If you prefer not to use cheese or honey, it’s entirely up to you, and the sandwich will still taste great.

Fresh herbs add a fantastic flavor and aroma to anything you make therefore what makes this delicious spread even better is freshly grown sweet basil.

So wait no further and order your gardening kit so that you can take your dishes from good to WOW!
