Using up coriander

Whenever I buy coriander (buy it from indian grocers rather than supermarkets, you loads more for loads cheaper) I always end up with plenty leftover I have no plans for. I had a look at the index of Veganomicon and noticed the Cilantro Rutabage Puree (Coriander Swede Puree to me!), I had everything bar the swede so picked one up after work and gave it a go, along with a quick chickpea red thai curry.


Makes a nice accompaniment other than the usual rice. The creaminess of the puree along with the tangy bite of the vegetables was lovely. Strangely I was in love the chickpeas even though wasn’t expecting to. I used mostly soy milk instead of coconut, a cheapo UK paste, and couldn’t be bothered chopping fresh garlic/ginger/chili to add like I usually do. Really enjoyable meal in under half an hour, woohoo!

Ooh, thanks for the pointer. I never noticed the coriander variation of the swede puree in vcon. I’ve been getting swede a lot recently in my vegbox, and always have leftover coriander so this will be perfect.
