This easy coriander dip is the perfect accompaniment to spicy sweet potato fries or crunchy raw vegetable sticks.
- 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
- 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
- Roughly chop the garlic cloves and add to the food processor.
- Blitz the garlic first to avoid big chunks in the sauce.
- Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor and blitz until smooth.
- 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.
