Cilantro, Dried Leaves

(Cilantro, Dried Leaves)  Cilantro is the leaf of the young coriander plant, Coriandrum sativum, an herb in the parsley family.  The leaves are picked and dried and chopped to make the seasoning we have before us.  The seeds of the mature plant are called coriander.  We primarily use the dried cilantro because we rarely will use a whole bunch of fresh cilantro before it spoils.  Cilantro in commonly used Mexican and Middle Eastern dishes, and in soups and bean dips.  See nutritional chart below.  The actual size of the dried cilantro leaves can be see in the photo to the left.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
