Gluten-Free Meals with Cilantro (Coriander) — Menu Plan Sept. 11

By · Print This Post Print This Post

We’re cooking with Fresh Herbs at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap this month. This week, we’re sharing recipe links and ideas for using fresh Cilantro (also known as Coriander). 

I love Cilantro. I wasn’t sure when I first tasted it in salsa many years ago, but I quickly learned to appreciate the fresh aroma and flavor it adds to dishes. I know, however, that there is a considerable number of people who have a strong dislike of cilantro and actually find it to taste like soap or some other inedible item. Some people even have an allergy to it.

If you don’t like cilantro or can’t safely eat it, you may want to consider replacing it in these recipes with your favorite herb. Perhaps Basil or a flat parsley?
