How Will Parsley Flakes Affect My Meal?
Parsley has the ability to brighten mild flavors. In cooking, there are five major tastes including salty, sweet, sour, bitter, and umami. Parsley is considered a mild “bitter.” The most savory meals include all or most of these tastes to create a well-rounded palette in your dish. When you add parsley to your soup or on top of your roasted potatoes, it will create a richer sensory experience if there is not already a bitter flavor added.
