Fresh parsley adds a pop of vibrancy, color and flavor to many different dishes. When your parsley plant has stopped producing its leaves, or when you simply don't have any fresh herbs on hand, consider replacing fresh parsley with dried. However, when you want to substitute dried parsley for fresh, you cannot simply use the same amount of dried that you would have for fresh. Dried herbs are much more pungent than fresh, so a lesser amount will do the job.
Read your recipe to find out how much fresh parsley you need to complete your dish. If you are not working from a recipe, estimate how much fresh parsley you would generally add to your tomato sauce, soup or other dish.
Replace 1 tbsp. of fresh parsley with 1 tsp. of dried parsley.
Use this formula to determine how much parsley the dish needs whether you are working with Italian parsley or curly parsley.

- Ensure your dried parsley is fresh by crumbling a bit to see if it is still aromatic. The color should still be bright green, the color of dried herbs fade as they age.
