Coriander Dip

This easy coriander dip is the perfect accompaniment to spicy sweet potato fries or crunchy raw vegetable sticks. 

Coriander Basics

  • Coriander is a versatile and sustainable herb because the entire plant is edible – leaves, stems, and dried seeds.
  • Coriander, also known as cilantro, is indispensable in Asian, Indian, Middle Eastern, and South American cuisine. 
  • A scattering of freshly chopped coriander accentuates the herbaceous notes of a curry, stew, or salad. 

Healthy Coriander Dip

Makes 1 cup

coriander dip
  • 1 cup plain yogurt (we use full fat)
  • 3 – 4 tbs fresh lemon juice
  • 2 small garlic cloves
  • 1 ½ cups fresh coriander (stems included), roughly chopped

Lots of salt and pepper, to taste

  1. Roughly chop the garlic cloves and add to the food processor. 
  2. Blitz the garlic first to avoid big chunks in the sauce. 
  3. Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor and blitz until smooth. 
  4. Remember to taste as you go. We like lots of bright acidity from lemon, but you should make the coriander dip to your own taste.
