A recipe given to me by friends in Tripoli, Libya. Perfect for a drinks party spread onto crackers or bruschetta and great as a BBQ appetizer with crudites. Vary the amount of chilies for heat and do not be tempted to use lower fat cream cheese as it will not work.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a food processor, add the chillies, garlic and half the coriander. Pulse until very finely chopped.
  2. Add the cream cheese, sugar and salt. Process for a few seconds.
  3. Add 3 Tablespoons of the yoghurt and the remaining coriander.
  4. Process for about 30 seconds more, or until well combined.
  5. Remove from the processor into a bowl, add more yoghurt, if required, stir well to achieve a consistency you like.
  6. Serve on crackers or with crudites (vegetable sticks).
