Herb and garlic dip

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

  1. 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
  2. Scrape the herbs and garlic down the sides of bowl.
  3. 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.
