Parsley is one of the most nutrient packed greens out there!
A Most Flavorful, Nutritive Green
Parsley is more than just a garnish; it is a flavorful, nutrient-rich green. Parsley is a relative of celery and was once referred to as “rock celery”. Mostly we see parsley as a garnish and used for good breath following a meal. You may be surprised to know that parsley contains Vitamins K, C, & A; folate; iron; copper; potassium; magnesium, fiber, calcium; manganese; phosphorus; zinc; and vitamins B3 & B1. Parsley is like the unsung hero of the vegetable world. I use parsley all the time in many dishes: meatballs, pesto, on sandwiches, in smoothies, in salads, in soups, in stews, in falafels, on chopped on top of brussel sprouts or asparagus, and countless more… Not only does it taste great, it is packed with vital nutrients.
