Easy Coriander Cream Sauce Recipe

If You Add Anything to Your Tacos, It Needs to Be This 3-Ingredient Coriander Cream Sauce


This three-ingredient coriander cream recipe is a family favourite, and I guarantee it'll be a go-to for you once you try it. It's the perfect thing to add to Mexican dishes like fajitas, tacos, burritos, and wraps for a cool and fresh component to counteract any spice. While the cream is absolutely delicious and versatile, it's so easy to make that it feels completely effortless, which is the best part!

Depending on your taste preferences, the recipe is also easily adaptable. If you're vegan, a dairy-free cream cheese works beautifully, and if you're looking to boost your protein intake, you can easily substitute Greek yoghurt! I use coriander paste because I always have it on hand, but fresh coriander works amazingly well after a few pulses in the food processor or blender.

This rich cream will elevate your dishes in minutes and also works wonderfully as a veggie dip. With endless options and high flavour payoff, this coriander spread will have you coming back for more.


3-Ingredient Cilantro Cream

Adapted Recipe by Rachel Alger


This recipe is meant to be simple. Fresh is best, however, I never get through my cilantro in time. Cilantro paste can be found in the produce section.
