Open a container of fresh Micro Cilantro to find the clean citrusy aroma and gorgeous frilly baby leaves. Cilantro is a popular herb known for its robust, peppery flavor and fresh, earthy finish! Notably absent in the micro variety is the musky scent and flavor that many dislike in the fully grown plant. The first set of bright green leaves to open, or the cotyledons, have an elongated blade-shape while the following pair, or the true leaves, have a slightly toothed margin and resemble a tiny version of mature cilantro leaves.
Micro Cilantro contains vitamins A, B, C, E, and K, beta-carotene, calcium, iron, potassium, zinc, and phosphorus.
Micro Cilantro leaves are best suited for raw preparations, specifically as a garnish, as they will wilt if exposed to prolonged heat. They feature a bright, sweet, and spicy flavor without the soapy, bitter characteristic that mature cilantro can develop. Micro Cilantro leaves are most commonly used in Mexican, Indian, Thai, and Chinese cuisines. They can be sprinkled on top of egg rolls and spring rolls, used to add a bright flavor to lobster and crab, mixed into polenta, or even chopped into salsa. Micro Cilantro pairs well with avocado, carrots, zucchini, tomato, coconut milk, citrus, ginger, mint, lemongrass, chili peppers, yogurt, chicken, lamb, and white fish.
