Fresh Coriander

Fresh Coriander (Herb)

Also known as cilantro or Chinese parsley but is most commonly called coriander in the UK. Thankfully this herb is now widely available in most supermarkets as its an important ingredient both in garnish and flavour. The stalks carry the most flavour and the leaves are often sprinkled on top of a dish. 

Can be grown in most climates although in a greenhouse this herb does particularly well in the UK. 1/2 a litre of seeds were found in Tutankhamun's tomb where it was believed to have been cultivated in ancient civilizations. 

The plant is rich in vitamins A, C and K and the seeds are high in fibre, calcium and magnesium making many cultures believe in its dietary benefits when eaten regularly.
