166/366: coriander quest conquered – the easy way

Months ago, against the advice of a random customer at Bunnings, I purchased and planted coriander seedlings. See 31/366: coriander quest for details. Cutting a short story shorter: they disappeared.

Now I have taken the easy way out. At the supermarket you can buy a bunch of cut coriander. Better still,  available now is basically a little pot of seedlings, which is the option I chose. Dividing them in half, I put some in the kitchen, which have long since gone, while the other section is thriving out in my herb garden.

In USA coriander is known as cilantro. Imagine on a cold winter’s night a red curry soup with various vegetables and noodles, coconut milk and coriander – delicious.
