Italian ParsleyMildly bittersweet flavour

Also known as Flat Leaf Parsley, Italian Parsley is one of the most commonly used herbs in the culinary arts. Super versatile, the leaves and stems contain much flavour but is not to be mistaken for Coriander.
Some says it is more flavourful than the Curly Parsley but this is a source of lengthy debate!

Chop or shred it and add it as a garnish, mix in salads and tabouleh or throw in stir fries.
