Cow parsley frittata

Carrying on with our cow parsley (Anthriscus sylvestris) theme after posts on cow parsley soup and cow parsley pesto, we’ve just had a wonderful cow parsley frittata for lunch.  Give it a try, it was great!

Remember – cow parsley can be confused with hemlock, so make sure that you have the right plant.  This guide will help tell them apart, but if you aren’t sure, don’t eat it.
