    We eat a lot of it. It's too bad it's already done for the summer when the tomatoes really start coming in, but we do get a second batch in the fall.

    If you use it after cooking rather than during, you can eliminate that special soap taste. Love it with some Thai , Mexican and Chimichurri for sure.

    Amazing herb the roots are out of this world for curry bases and the leaves are such vibrant flavored accompaniment for stir frys and currys. Also love it in mexican food and just simply chiffonade and through greek yogurht with broccolli and lime . Truly a delicous ingredient

    Not sure if there's any real science behind it but I've read about cilantro/coriander being used for heavy metal detox.

    I use it for some curries (leaves and stems for some Indian curries, and roots, stems and leaves for some Thai curries) and for steamed fish.

    I love cilantro! It makes everything taste lighter (fresher? less greasy?? I don't know what the correct word would be). There is never enough cilantro in my food.

    I love a healthy dose of it in salsas. Took time for it to grow on me but I ended up loving it like everything I swore off when I was very young

    Yeah, if you ever hear 'cilantro' you know you're listening to a US cooking show.
