I add parsley to my green smoothies. I usually make them with a ratio 3:4. 3-half cup of varied fruits and 4-half cups of greens and herbs (either parsley or cilantro). You can add to your smoothies honey and ginger.
I also add parsley or cilantro when I cook beans or in my soups.

Angel, I bet that would help it retain all those good things that are so great for a healthy body, too, if you tried to eat it as close to raw as possible.

PARSLEY WAS ORIGINALLY PUT ON PLATES AS A NIBBLE TO CLEAN THE PALATE AND SWEETEN THE BREATH between meals or courses. It is still good for that, just nibble a bit at a time, perhaps dipped in salad dressing or lemon juice for taste. I often sprinkle minced parsley over cooked vegetables, omelets or fish and pale meats, for color and a pop of fresh flavor to liven the taste. Parsley is best added last to soups, stews, gravies and sauces, just before serving or even sprinkled fresh on as you serve, so that it keeps its fresh color and lively taste.

Team, I'll try all of your suggestions, except the clam sauce. But I would do the same kind of thing with shrimp, olive oil, garlic, and a mess of parsley.

Christina I DO have a large bunch in the refrigerator like Chef Meg, just waiting to try your ideas. Last years parsley is up in the pot on the porch. And I have 2 packets of parsley seeds to plant. Tomorrow is planting day, I think.

(I might even try the batter fried parsley for an appetizer at a party. Healthier than deep fat fried cheese, I expect. A dip with yogurt would probably be kinder to guests. I hate to think I might be taking years off of someone's life by clogging up their arteries.)

I have a whole bunch of it, two hands full, and put them in the blender with a ripe pear and maybe a bit of apple, cut in pieces, and a glass of water.
A WONDERFUL be it un-cheap green smoothie. Promise me you'll try it?

I put parsley on boiled potatoes or add it to the greens in a salad.

This week's anti-angiogenic feature:

When I was growing up, I thought parsley was a "hood ornament" on my plate, just a decoration. Once I tried to eat a sprig sitting beside the mashed potatoes, and I had a coughing fit because it tickled my throat. According to Dr. Li's video, parsley is # 4 on his food list of fat cell and cancer cell fighters.

So, I need to get parsley into my food so it has a chance to get inside me where it will do more than make my plate look pretty.

Please share what you like to do with parsley in this thread.
