craving: cilantro.

There are two types of people, those who LOVE cilantro and think it makes (almost) every meal taste better and those who hate it. Luckily, h believes that "there is no such thing as too much cilantro" and we try to sneak it in lots of our meals - obvious ones like bean burritos, tacos, salsa, guacamole) but I also love it in chili and on pizza too! So now I am looking for even more ways to use my favorite herb. 



colombian chicken and potato soup // baked garlic cilantro fries (we bake fries all the time so this is an easy addition) // indian-style beef kebabs with cilantro sauce // parmesan cilantro corn (sounds like the perfect side) // cilantro pesto (pesto AND cilantro?! what the what? two of my favorites combined!) // avocado fries with cilantro lemon dip (another amazing combo!) 

Are you a cilantro fan?

  4. I like it, although I don't use it too often in my cooking. BUT when I do, it gives my dish a great smell. Wondering if truffle oil would be good with those cilantro fries. I think that dip for those kabobs would be yummy! Thanks for sharing this.

  5. We LOVE cilantro in the Copeland household! I just recently made a greek yogurt cilantro sauce (greek yogurt, cilantro and lime - blend in blender - done!) and it was delicious over shrimp tacos :)

  13. I'm a cilantro fan...and I swear I read somewhere that some people have something weird with their tastebuds that makes cilantro taste like soap. Hence, the passionate anti-cilantro contingent(???)

  14. I love cilantro! it goes great on top of a mixture of rice, beans, sausage, etc with a little avocado. I also like to add it to my morning juice!

  15. I'm without a doubt on the cilantro lover end of the spectrum. I have a hard time cooking with it in the winter because it's so summer-y to me, but once the warm weather hits I'm all over it.

  16. i cannot stand cilantro! i can find the tiniest amount of it, like a needle in a haystack. but i accept it since it's in salsa and other yummy things. i'm a huge lover of oregano, and i know not everyone's a fan of that!
