What can you make with these three ingredients; cream cheese, garlic and parsley? Well, I made a herb and garlic dip with these ingredients. This is great as starters for a party or an afternoon snack for the kids. I served it with some brown rice crackers and the kids loved it. You can make this in a food processor or a thermomix like I did. It only takes a few minutes. Homemade dips are better tasting that supermarket dips and no extra additives are added.
1 clove of garlic(peeled)
1 bunch of flat leaf parsley(washed)
250g cream cheese
- Put the garlic and parsley in a food processor or thermomix. It took only 5 seconds at speed 7 on the thermomix. If using a food processor, blend until a bit less than final desired texture
- Scrape the herbs and garlic down the sides of bowl.
- Add the cream cheese and blend until your desired consistency is achieved. On the thermomix, it took 20 seconds on speed 4.
dNote: You can add some yoghurt or milk if you like a softer consistency. I did not add any as we like our dip that consistency. And you can try this recipe with any other herbs that you like.
