Parsley is without a doubt one of the most versatile herbs. Fresh parsley is commonly used as a garnish, and dried parsley is very popular as a spice.
There are two main varieties of parsley: curly leaf and flat-leaf.
Because of its light scent and fresh taste, parsley can be used in anything from soups to sauces to vegetables. As a garnish, parsley can be chopped and sprinkled in soups, hummus, or mixed with ground meat.
Parsley is the most common herb used in Middle Eastern recipes.
