Parsley

Petroselinum crispum var. astra

Flatleaf parsley tastes fresh and green and does not compete with other flavors. That's why you can use it quite liberally: chop it and use it as a topping to your soups, salads, sandwiches, pate, stews, or whisk it together with veggies and fruits or into a healthy smoothie. Some food really calls for flatleaf parsley - it is a key ingredient in salsa verde and tabbouleh salad. The aftereffect of eating garlicky foods can be quelled by chewing parsley leaves.

A close relative to the parsley is the Coriander (sometimes called Chinese Parsley).

Health Benefits:

• Parsley is a rich source of vitamin K, which helps blood to clot, and a good source of vitamins C, A, and folate.
• Parsley contains many antibiotic, antioxidant, and other health-promoting phytocompounds that may help to prevent some cancers, osteoporosis, and diabetes.
• Parsley is especially rich in some phytonutrients that offer promise for cancer prevention.
• A sprig of parsley will freshen your breath after a garlic-laden meal.
• Chopped fresh parsley applied to a new bruise may help ease pain and reduce inflammation. Freeze some in ice cubes to rub on bruises.
