Cilantro is the Spanish word for coriander and it is a member of the carrot family. This highly aromatic, boldly pungent, and citrus-like tasting herb is the most frequently used herb in the world. Cilantro is used both to add flavor and color to a dish. The dried herb is milder, parsley-like but is still refreshing with hints of lemon, mint, and pepper. Cilantro pairs well with beans, avocado, rice, tomato-based foods, fish and shellfish and can be added to soups, stews, sauces, dips, and curries.
Cilantro is an incredible source of antioxidants and is loaded with vitamins and minerals. It is a powerful cleansing agent that specifically targets toxic metals and helps by supporting the body’s natural detoxification processes. Cilantro is a great, low-calorie "superherb".
