lots of parsley...

  • c

any ideas for a garden full of parsley? I have both Italian Large Leaf and Curley taking over my garden and need to get rid of some this weekend...

  1. Chimichurri sauce in a large batch.

    Put it over steaks or chicken.

    1. I love to finely mince or blend a bunch of flat-leaf parsley with lots of fresh garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper. Great for spaghetti. (You have to love parsley and garlic though.)

        I do the same thing but I include grated parmesan cheese. Often I add toasted slivered almonds or pinenuts. Great quick, delicious meal.

      2. Make a big batch of meatballs and freeze them to use as needed. I put a ton of parsley and parmesan cheese in my meatballs, yummy, now I want some! LOL

          You could always hang it to dry for use all winter long, too.

        2. Alton Brown has a good lemon parsley salad that ive made a number of times. Very good.

          1. I love two or more parts parsley chopped up with one part onions, salt, pepper, and lime juice over all foods Latin. I imagine it'd be great on all kinds of fish, too.

            You could also make a pesto that's 1/2 parsley, 1/2 basil. It takes a lot of herbs to make a small amount of pesto, and it freezes well for months.
