Cilantro
My understanding
You either love it or hate it
I am in the hate category
Uggh, awful

I don't love it.

But I certainly don't understand why some people hate it so passionately....

' A must on Indian food'.

Except I call it coriander.

curry


I put curry powder on omelets.

As to cilantro, I won't eat carnitas tacos if there's no chopped cilantro, onions and lime. In a pinch, I can do without the onions and lime.

Cilantro is a must in Mexican cooking, main ingredient in pico de gallo. Coriander is the ground seeds from the cilantro plant.

Some people have a gene that makes it taste like soap. So genetically, it's not for everyone. I put diced cilantro in everything. It's always in the fridge.

Not in the UK... coriander is the green herby bit in recipes.

Monozygotic twins will share the same views on cilantro but dizygotic twins may differ.

Cilantro will definitely inhibit the absorption of heavy metals from the diet though there is insufficient proof of systemic scavenging much less from brain tissue. People with heavy metal poisoning as well as cranial parasites often take cilantro despite its unproven effectiveness.

Consuming fish or burgers with cilantro is probably a good idea but of course cilantro ain't cheap.

Just as potatoes and lavender oil appeared in recipes several hundred years ago, cilantro and fish have been used together in centuries old recipes.

I wonder what % of the population dislikes the taste
I am not really a picky eater
But I just cant deal with the taste
