But what if you get a massive wodge of coriander?
I usually buy fresh fruit and veg from my local market. They don't normally sell herbs, so when I spotted some fresh coriander the other week, I immediately bought some, without realising how large one lone bunch actually was.
Now coriander is one of my favourite herbs and when I buy one of those normal little packets you get from the supermarket, it usually isn't enough. But this one from the market was just ridiculous!
Of course, I didn't want to end up wasting too much of it (and hell yes I managed to use it all!). But I didn't want to get overly coriander-fatigued either and simply use it up within freezable batches of just one or two dishes. So here's five different ways of using up coriander, should you ever find yourself in such a situation...
Bacon, Tomato and Coriander Omelette
Lemon and Coriander Rice

Lemon and Coriander Yogurt CakeOrange and Rosemary Yogurt cake that turned out pretty well, so I figured that a lemon and coriander version would work just fine. And most thankfully it did!
One more extra tip - whilst coriander doesn't freeze particular well, try filling up an ice cube tray with the any leftover leaves and a bit of water. You can then pop them out individually into hot dishes, as and when you fancy a bit of coriander.
So hopefully that has given you some ideas to try the next time you find yourself with some coriander to use up. Enjoy! Continue reading this post..
