Our vertical garden has been up and running for a couple of weeks now, and we’re feeling pretty chuffed with how it’s going – the herbs are running wild, the dahlias are covered in buds about to burst open, and all but one of the veggies we planted are thriving.
But while I frequently run my hands through the basil (I can’t get enough of the smell!) we were yet to actually make anything with it. After noticing just how large it had grown while watering the garden this morning I decided enough was enough, and I plucked a handful to use in some savoury baking this afternoon.
While I don’t share a lot of savoury baking on this little blog I absolutely love it, so it didn’t take long to work out what I wanted to bake using the freshly plucked basil… savoury scrolls! Mum used to make basil and tomato pesto scrolls for my lunch when I was younger and I absolutely adored them – so I decided to come up with something similar.
