Then you have two in one, the fresh (cilantro) and the seeds (coriander).

IMO, you can't narrow down a favorite, because so many work well in combo.

Agreed. I have around a hundred herbs, spices and blends in my cabinets. I couldn't possibly pick a single one.

Here are a couple similar discussions we have had:

- YOUR Top 5 Spices?

- What are Your Favorite Herbs & Spices?

This one's easy - salt.

Wait...salt is a spice, isn't it?

No, it's a mineral. It's the only rock people eat

Well, unless you forget to sort through your bag of beans before using them...

Himself asked me one time why I bother doing that. A minute later, I was able to produce not only a tiny stone (that would have felt like a boulder had he bitten into it) but a teeny bit of a soil clump. So nice of those beans to provide a visual.
