From eye serum to antioxidant facial hydrating cream, beauty brand Aesop offers no fewer than 10 products that rely on the power of parsley seeds to make customers smoother, softer, moister, and even tauter. When asked to cook for a dinner in Los Angeles using ingredients in the company’s portfolio, Kismet Chefs Sarah Hymanson and Sara Kramer found inspiration in parsley seeds. “It occurred to us that no one uses them,” says Kramer. Sourced from a local garden supply shop, the duo combines the inexpensive seeds with ground sumac, sesame seeds, and other spices to make za’atar. The blend is sprinkled over a salad of crisp Persian cucumbers, bright citrus, and tangy labneh, adding the concentrated flavor of parsley and textural crunch of seeds. “They deserve a place in the culinary repertoire,” says Kramer.
