What to do with a parsley bunch
Parsley is one of those herbs that grows and grows!
It is perfect to use as a garnish on many recipes, simply chop it up.
If you have a bunch of parsley and don't know what to do with it put it to good use and make this super simple sauce!
Everything you need to make the recipe is shown in the photo below.
We use a combination of 4 simple ingredients with our main ingredient being, the parsley of course!
As you can see, the recipe calls for:
- Greek Yogurt (can use low fat)
- parsley (can use curly or flat leaf)
- garlic (peeled and end cut off)
- salt and pepper
We use both the leaves and stems of the parsley and the food processor to chop them up finely.
Combined with the smooth and creamy yogurt, the parsley produces pops of herby freshness!
Here are the step by step instructions to make this sauce.
You will need a food processor with a sharp blade (not the shred but the dice blade).
- Add to parsley, garlic, salt and pepper to food processor (Photo 1)
- Blitz for 2-3 seconds till finely chopped up (Photo 2)
- Dollop in Greek Yogurt (Photo 3)
- Blitz for 3-5 seconds till combined (Photo 4)
These simple steps are all that is needed to bring our sauce together.
I find a spatula handy as some of the herbs and garlic go up the sides of the bowl. You can use the spatula to push them down into the sauce again.
The sauce has a slighter thinner consistency when freshly made, due to the agitation of the blitzing, however, after a minute or so, it regains its thick, dollop worthy consistency!
This Parsley Yogurt Sauce works with SO many flavours and textures! You are limitless in your pairings. Try one of the following for inspiration:
