  2. Great choice. Now, I have to check all the parsley-based and coriander (cilantro) recipes that I have already posted that I can't include. :laugh:

    I have to ask: does this include the newly "discovered" parsley root? Likewise, if you were to find a shop that sells coriander with the root, could we also include the root?

    Sorry, nope, because although it is a 'parsley root', it is a root, challenge is about the leaves

    Funny you should mention that because I recently acquired some parsley root. Its delicious. [EDIT]: oops! I realised you are linking to the post I made about it!

    Both growing in my garden, although cilantro looking a bit tatty.

    Can you please pick one or the other (parsley or coriander) :okay:

    The challenge is a single ingredient and has only incorporated alternatives when something hasn't been available in another country or wasn't vegan/vegetarian.

    Thank you.

    Sadly both have finished in my garden and in having to buy it in. Too cold now to get coriander growing but I may be able to get parsley up and running assuming my chooks don't decide to stuff themselves (pun intended!).

    Looking for cabbage in the garden, found some basil that's usable, out of the way of frosts. Coriander nearly gone to seed.

    [I'm not sure if this is permitted as I have posted the recipe for the sauce previously but it was to accompany cod]

    We rarely use it and only as an ingredient in a dish, not a featured ingredient. Even in my meatball recipe, I sub fresh oregano for it.

    I think that (sadly perhaps) parsley is often regarded as a minor player and there aren't many recipes where its the 'main' ingredient. At least I don't think so. Parsley sauce and various dishes like chimichurri and some pesto-like dishes feature it dominantly. Its also good in simple pasta dishes. Oh - and Chicken Kiev?

    But hey! This is a challenge and I rather like a challenge!

    The reason why we rarely use it is that we don't particularly like the way it tastes or the texture (even the flat leaf) in things where it is used predominantly. If a recipe calls for it, it is either omitted, replaced or greatly reduced in quantity.

  15. I would have already submitted a tabouleh recipe, but that doesn't mean someone else can't. And, I'm with @morning glory: it's a challenge, right?
