Add cilantro microgreens just before serving to preserve their delicate texture, as they may wilt if exposed to prolonged heat. Unlike fully grown cilantro, these microgreens boast a vibrant and subtly sweet flavor, devoid of the occasionally soapy or bitter undertones found in mature cilantro. Ideal for enhancing dishes from Mexican, Indian, Thai, and Chinese cuisines, cilantro microgreens offer versatile culinary possibilities. Sprinkle them atop egg rolls or spring rolls for added freshness, incorporate them into lobster or crab dishes to infuse a lively flavor, mix them into polenta, or finely chop them into salsa for a zesty kick. Cilantro microgreens complement a variety of ingredients, including avocado, carrots, zucchini, tomato, coconut milk, citrus, ginger, mint, lemongrass, chili peppers, yogurt, chicken, lamb, and fish.

Coriander microgreens, often referred to as cilantro or Chinese parsley, are a powerhouse of flavor and nutrition. Grown from Coriander herb seeds, these tiny greens are harvested before the full Coriander plant forms, giving them an incredibly pungent flavor. Coriander microgreens pack an impressive nutrient punch—containing more Vitamin A than spinach and chard–which makes them a smart and tasty addition to any smoothie or salad. In addition, Coriander microgreens’ fresh, distinct taste makes them the perfect garnish for all kinds of dishes. While typically small in size, Coriander microgreens have a big impact on the overall flavor profile of your meal!

What’s most fascinating about Coriander microgreens is that even though they’ve been around for a long time, they are still emerging in popularity as chefs discover more ways to maximize their potential. With Coriander microgreens, every bite will be an experience unlike any other.

Cilantro microgreens contain very high levels of the carotenoids lutein/ zeaxanthin, violaxanthin and beta carotene, which are fat soluble antioxidants important for organ function and protecting cellular structures from damage. Cilantro microgreens contain 3 times more beta carotene than the mature leaves. The concentration of beta carotene in cilantro microgreens is comparable to that of carrots and sweet potatoes.
