How to make it 30 minutes
Buy fresh cilantro with bright green leaves uniform in color. Avoid yellow or wilted cilantro. the stems and roots of cilantro can be eaten. Immerse them in a glass of water cover with a plastic bag, and put in the refrigerator. Cut off leaves as you need them and always re-cover. Do not wash until you are ready to use cilantro because too much moisture makes the leaves slimy.
