There is hardly any stew in any country’s cuisine that doesn’t call for parsley and Bulgarian cuisine is no exception. Parsley is one of the most frequently used spices in Bulgarian cuisine.
Parsley gives flavor and vitamins to soups and meals. It is an ingredient in many traditional Bulgarian purees, gravies, stews, canned food, and its leaves are used to decorate salads, grilled meat or fish. In some cases, parsley becomes the protagonist in dishes like breaded parsley or parsley meatballs.
Parsley is an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin K, iron and folate (folic acid). Two tablespoons parsley cover daily dose of vitamin C.
