Cilantro - Spices and Herbs

Cilantro

The coriander plant gives us two spices, coriander and cilantro. Cilantro comes from the leafy portion of the plant, while coriander comes from the seeds. Although they share a common source, you’d never know it from their flavors.

Cilantro has a complex flavor with hints of pepper, sage and lemon. A versatile herb, it’s used in everything from traditional Indian curries and Asian stir-fries to Mexican salsas.

Like many herbs, cilantro’s flavor diminishes the longer it’s exposed to heat. So be sure to add it at the end of cooking.
