Mitsuba is a type of Japanese parsley that is a key ingredient in the soup steamed in a teapot called dobin mushi. Light and refreshing, it has a clean, grassy taste. Mitsuba looks a lot like Italian flat-leaf parsley, with the same flat, jagged leaves and long stems. Mitsuba is used to season soups, poultry, meats, and noodles. It can also be used in salads and dumplings. Want to grow your own?
