Nature's Most Divisive Vegetable
You'll either beg for more or run away...
"Who likes Cilantro?"
I always have to ask.
And every response is passionate. Everyone plants a flag.
When I so much as ask about cilantro at the farmers markets, every single person at the table either takes a big step forward, or takes a big step back. The people who love cilantro light up and extend their hands; they want it now. The people who do not... they slink back, as if they are afraid that cilantro is going to get on them somehow.
Almost certainly, you either love cilantro with vast affection, or you hate cilantro and believe that it needs to be stopped.
It's genetic, actually.
It seems that some people are born with a gene that alters the taste of cilantro.
They say it tastes like soap. So which team are you on?
Both teams should keep reading...
But what about the flavor of Cilantro Microgreens?
It's hit and miss.
Many people who HATE cilantro find that they LOVE Cilantro Microgreens. Others hate the microgreens even more than the mature plant.
What I know for sure is that the flavor of Cilantro Microgreens is vastly more intense than the regular plant.
For flavor, Cilantro is the most powerful Microgreen that I've discovered.
But why the mixed reaction?
I have a theory:
Cilantro possesses a mix of two flavors. There's a smokey flavor, and a citrusy flavor. The smokey flavor is what some are mistaking for soapy.
Well, Cilantro Microgreens pack way more of the citrusy flavor. Sometimes it tastes like lime juice!
Is this why many cilantro haters loving Cilantro Microgreens?
Perhaps we'll never know.

More Versatile than Mature Cilantro
You like chopping greens?
Of course, I'm being dramatic. Chopping veggies can be therapeutic. But when you just don't have the time, it's not therapeutic.
You're preparing dinner...
...Children are screaming...
.........Dog is scratching at the door to come back in...
............Spouse is yelling from the home office, asking you to keep it down...
...............Boss/Clients calling your cell phone...

Can you give yourself a break?
Ok, well then how about this: you never have to chop up cilantro again.
Just use the Cilantro Microgreens and sprinkle them on. Takes 5 seconds.
But Wait! There's MORE!
Cilantro Microgreens have much stronger flavor than mature cilantro. So you'll have to use way less of them to get the perfect taste for your dish.
So you're not just saving time... you're preventing a bunch of roughage from ruining your texture!
