    Hi there, I’m from Melbourne, Australia and am wondering what cilantro is. I also don’t think I can purchase green onions here. Are there substitutes? Thanks

      Cilantro is a leafy green herb, which also can go by ‘coriander’. It’s basically the green that grows from the coriander seed, and looks similar to flat leaf parsley (but doesn’t taste the same). Green onions are a variation of spring onions and scallions (it’s the long green part on top!) you can use chives… or you can just omit them all together!
