corianderCuriosities

When I think of coriander, one of the first things that comes to my mind is its incredible taste and power. I discovered its flavor some years ago during a trip to UK and since that moment it became one of my favorite spices. Why adding a lot of extra salt to our recipes when we can simply dress them with plenty of healthy spices? I totally love coriander, yes I certainly do.
Beside adding a very amazing taste to your delicious dishes, it also brings many advantages to your body. It contains several vitamins and minerals which are able to increase your level of energy throughout the day; it is really perfect for dressing and make your soup even more special. Looking for a way to add big flavor with few calories? Coriander is the right answer 😉

History

Wondering about the origin of coriander? It is time to find out more about this special spice. Coriander, also known as Chinese parsley, has been known for years since it is one of the most healthy spices that we could access to. It is native to the Mediterranean area, from Southwestern Europe to Northern Africa and Western Asia. Nowadays it can be easily found all around the world, even if I see it is mainly used in the Asian cuisine.
