Coriander? I don’t even know her!
A sweet, aromatic taste with a little touch of citrus. Slightly spicy, and a little nutty, coriander is an often overlooked and underrated addition to your pantry.
The Bio Data
Coriander powder is what happens when you roast—and grind—coriander seeds, which (fun fact!) are the same plant as cilantro. One plant, two wildly different tastes. Nature is awesome. Yeah, we said it.
This mellow spice is a true sidekick in most dishes, bringing out the best flavors in key ingredients and letting them shine. But don’t sleep on coriander. Without it, your cooking would be just a little less bright.
Looking for a way to bring a little levity and fruitiness to a dry rub? Or maybe a smoky zest to a stew? Coriander’s got your back.
