Including cilantro in a meal is a great way to add flavor to a dish or beverage without adding extra calories, fat, or sodium. Cilantro is a tender herb that has gentle leaves. These are best to add either raw or near the end of the cooking process. This helps them maintain their flavor and texture. Cilantro is relatively easy to grow and can thrive in a Tower Garden or in small pots on a sunny windowsill, making it a sustainable, flavorsome herb. When preparing cilantro, separate the leaves from the stems and only use the leaves. Use a sharp knife or herb shears and cut them gently. Cutting with a dull knife or over chopping them will bruise the herb, and much of the flavor will end up on the cutting board surface. Cilantro pairs well with many dishes, especially Mexican or Thai meals. It also works well with dishes that contain beans, cheese, eggs, and fish. The herb is also great with creamy vegetable dips and as a topping or garnish for soups and salads.
