Three Summery Recipes Featuring Parsley
A sprinkle of parsley adds freshness to dishes in cultures around the world. Whether the curly or flat-leaf variety, parsley offers an impressive nutrient profile. Its bright green color points to its vitamin K content — offering a whopping 547% of the daily recommended intake to support blood coagulation and bone health.
It also features quite a few antioxidants — including carotenoids, vitamin C and flavonoids — to help prevent cell damage and support various bodily functions.
Finally, parsley’s a good source of folate, especially important for pregnant women to prevent neural tube defects. The best part? Parsley is easy to incorporate by sprinkling it onto a variety of dishes and even making it the star of the show in a chimichurri or tabbouleh.
Check out these three simple recipes to enjoy parsley this season:
- Grilled Shrimp Tacos with Avocado and Chili Lime Chimichurri
- Moroccan Chicken Meatballs with Parsley Orzo and Citrus Whipped Feta
