Coriander, ground

(Coriander, ground)  Ground coriander seed has a mild, sweet, slightly pungent, citrus-like flavor with a hint of sage. Coriander complements, curries, Middle Eastern dishes, vegetables, stewed fruit, chutney, pickles, cakes, biscuits, breads and lentils.  Coriander is the common name of the seed of Coriandrum sativum, a feathery annual herb of the family Apiaceae (Umbelliferae). Native to the Mediterranean and Middle East regions, the herb is cultivated in Europe, Morocco, and the United States for its seeds.  The tender young leaves of the coriander plant, known as cilantro, are also used for seasoning, but their flavor is entirely different.  At 800 X 600 resolution, the photo to the left is the actual size of a teaspoon of ground coriander seed.  See the nutritional chart below.

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!
