So the nearest grocery store only carries cilantro in massive bunches. How do I use up a lot of cilantro all at once?
When I'm making beans or a stew I'll just throw a whole bunch like that in at the end. Tastes good.
They're not even a whole dollar here. They're 48 cents. I only use the tops, give them a quick chop and throw out the stems.
1 bunch fresh coriander (cilantro)
1 clove garlic
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 minced green chilli
1 tablespoon peanuts
salt to taste
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Blitz together. Use as a dip or over grilled meat.
like everyone's saying. It's cheap, so toss it if you don't wanna use it all.
Otherwise you can dry it, "fresh" dried cilantro is pretty good in a pinch, as long as you aren't garnishing with it.
Or you can snip the stems at an angle and put it in a jar with cold water in the fridge, then cover the tops with a plastic bag. It will keep for a couple weeks that way as long as you change the water every few days.
