Parsley (Petroselinum crispum), is the veritable powerhouse of the herb world. It is packed with vitamins A, B complex, C and E, and the minerals iron and calcium. Parsley is said to ease digestion, as well as clear the complexion, regulate the functioning of the intestines and prevent the formation of gallstones. It is the principal element of bouquet garni—a bunch of mixed herbs added to stocks and soups, to give a depth of background flavour.
