With its parsley-like leaves, cilantro has a powerful, unmistakable flavor. Some love it, others hate it: this aromatic herb leaves no one indifferent!
A staple of Asian and Oriental cuisine, it lends an exotic flavor to every dish.
This aromatic herb is a powerful antioxidant. It is renowned for stimulating the appetite, but also for its digestive, toning, antibacterial and detoxifying benefits.
How can cilantro be associated?
Cilantro goes well in salads, fish dishes, soups, curries, stews and tagines.
How do you cook cilantro?
Cilantro is widely used in Indian, Asian, Oriental and South American cuisine. It flavors fish, meat and poultry dishes, and goes very well with lemon and ginger. Best eaten raw, it loses its aroma when cooked.
It can be found in such well-known dishes as massalé in Africa, curry in India, Bo bun in Vietnam and ceviche in Peru.
The more daring will even dare to try it in sweet recipes, where it goes well with coconut milk or pineapple.
Our tips for successfully growing your cilantro
Cilantro is a fragile plant with flexible stems. Avoid handling it too much to prevent it from lying down.
Wait 3-4 weeks before harvesting (approx. 15 cm high).
Cut off the oldest outer stems, leaving the heart intact. Avoid cutting only the leaves, leaving the stem, as this reduces growth. Never harvest more than a third of the plant.
Cilantro has a short cycle and can flower quickly. The appearance of a large, rigid stem is synonymous with going to seed. Cut this stem to preserve flavour and leaf production.
