Parsley is a good source of iron, rich in vitamins and rich in flavour. The friends of flatleaf parsley say it has a stronger flavour, and that it sprouts quicker than its curly cousin. Flatleaf parsley tastes fresh and green and does not compete with other flavours. That’s why you can use it quite liberally: chop it and use it as a topping to your soups, salads, sandwiches, pâté, stews or whisk it together with veggies and fruits or into a healthy smoothie. Some food really calls for flatleaf parsley. It’s the key ingredient in salsa verde and tabbouleh salad. The aftereffect of eating garlicky foods can be quelled by chewing parsley leaves.
