Herbs and Flowers - "PARSLEY" - Event October 20th to November 15th


This is another event which I am guest hosting for this month starting from 20th Oct to Nov 15th. This event was started by PJ of "Seduce Your Tastebuds" and this month I am really happy to host this event. PJ has a beautiful space with lots of wonderful recipes.

I chose "Parsley" as this months "Herb and Flower" because it is considered as a herb which is very flavorful and colorful. There are two varieties of the parsley, one being the "Flat Leaf" and the other being the "Curly Leaf". Flat leaf parsley has bit stronger flavor than curly leaf parsley. Even the root of parsley is used in cooking which is similar to parsnip.
Flat leaf parsley is widely used in stocks, soups, and sauces, as a garnish, etc., and curly leaf parsley is used in  salads etc.,

Nutritional Information:
-----------------------------
  •  Apigenin, a chemical found in great quantities in parsley, has been  found to have potent anti-cancer activity. It works by inhibiting the formation of new blood vessels that feed a tumor.
  • It is commonly believed that when chewed, parsley can freshen breath, especially from eating garlic. However, some people regard this as a myth; it is no more effective than chewing any other substance.
  • Parsley is a source of phytochemicals such as carotenoids, which are known to extend various biological effects.
  • The methanolic extract of parsley is antimicrobial.
  • Parsley seed extract can reduce blood pressure (hypertensive), possibly due to its diuretic effects.
Now that you know well about the use of parsley......why wait lets cook up some delicious food and send to my event!!
