According to the National Center for Home Food Preservation, one cup of fresh basil weighs about 1.3 ounces. That means that 4 ounces of fresh basil will weigh about 5.4 ounces after it’s been dried. One-half cup of dried basil is equal to 2 ounces.

The usual substitution is 1 teaspoon dried (chopped or crumbled) dried herb in place of 1 tablespoon fresh.

However, you should be aware that you can't substitute fresh basil for dried basil in a 1:1 ratio. Dried basil is much more concentrated than fresh basil, so you have to use less of it.
