Food processor? Check. If not, blender or good ol’ cutting board and knife will do. Fresh parsley? Yes, I mean that whole bunch of fresh herbs that are only $.49. Check. Butter? Duh. Ciabatta? Of course. I’m always down for good bread.
I once heard Rachael Ray say that Parsley was grassy. Well, the verdict is that she was right. It is grassy. But in a strangely delicious kind of way. It’s fragrant and fresh, and this bread will go with many a dish. This bread will take you places.
