20+ Delicious Ways to Use Up a Bunch of Parsley
It’s easy to think of parsley as a garnish to sprinkle over dinner or decorate a serving plate or cheese board, but it’s such a versatile herb. Treat it like any other leafy green and use it as a salad base — or mix it in with other lettuces to add a punch of flavor. You can also blitz it into a sauce, like chimichurri or pesto, stir it into a grain or bean salad, or throw it into a frittata. Another plus for parsley: When stored properly (with the ends trimmed and in a glass of water in the fridge or wrapped in a damp paper towel and placed in a plastic bag), it will last for close to two weeks.
Honestly, parsley has become one of my favorite herbs and I think it’s time to give this “garnish” its due. I’ve put together 23 of my favorite parsley recipes which are a great reason to buy a bunch of two of parsley and a delicious way to use up that bunch you have sitting in your refrigerator.
