We like the texture and taste of flat leaf parsley better than curly parsley. The two varieties of parsley can be used interchangeably. Try adding freshly chopped parsley to meatballs, meatloaf, falafel or toubouleh. Like other herbs fresh parsley may be chopped and frozen in an ice cube tray. The parsley cubes can then be thrown into soups or stews at a later time.
