How to chop parsley and cilantro

"Parsley and cilantro are some of the power herbs that make our food taste so great," says Chef Nancy Waldeck of Thomas F. Chapman Family Cancer Wellness at Piedmont.

Whether you're using flat leaf parsley, curly parsley or cilantro, this method will make chopping hearty herbs a breeze.

  • Take a small bunch of herbs and fold it in half so it forms a little bundle. This makes it much easier to chop.
  • Run your knife right through the leaves making thin slices.

Bonus tip: Did you know you don't have to remove cilantro's stems before chopping? Stems add flavor, nutrition and texture, so don't throw them away!

That's it! Now all you have to do is put those herbs to good use. Check out some healthy recipes here. For more quick tips like this one, click here
