Ingredient of the Week: Cilantro MiniCubes

Categories: The Basics

What is it?

A concentrated mixture of cilantro that, per cube, is equal to two teaspoons of fresh cilantro. There are also some random ingredients packed into these bouillon-like squares, including monosodium glutamate (which I've personally never had a problem with), hydrogenated palm oil, dehydrated spinach - for color, presumably - and ground bay leaves.

Interestingly enough, it's a product of the Dominican Republic.

What is it used for?

You can use it in a pinch if you don't want to run to the store for a $.50 bunch of the fresh stuff in soups, rice, stews and anything else where it would dissolve easily.

Where can I buy it in Houston?

We found this at the Foodarama on Victory and Bingle, but we're guessing it can be found in many of the Latin markets around town.
