“Since I can't grow it to save my life and the supermarket seems to only sell it in giant bunches I constantly find myself left with a big bunch of coriander (cilantro) hanging out in my fridge. I hate, hate, hate wasting food so I had to come up with a way to use it up before it died a slow and messy death in the back of my fridge!”
