Parsley Pie

Although parsley has been used as a garnish for many years, it’s now being recognized as a valuable food.

High in iron and vitamin C, parsley is a nutritious and inexpensive food – especially if you grow it yourself.

Parsley pie, a traditional Cornish recipe, especially good for using up leftovers.

  1. Preheat oven to Gas Mark 4 (350F, 180C)
  2. Lightly grease an ovenproof dish and almost fill with chopped fresh parsley.
  3. Mix in cooked lamb or any other meat or vegetarian substitute (chopped or minced)
  4. Add a couple of chopped hard boiled eggs and any chopped veggies you may have lurking in the fridge!
  5. Season and pour stock over the whole lot. Stock could be meat, chicken, ham or vegetable.
  6. Cover with a pastry top and bake in the pre-heated oven for about half an hour.

NB: If you use meat, always make sure it’s piping hot right through before serving.

Grow your own parsley so you have a constant supply of this wonderful herb.
