can anyone convert american recipes to british metric????

I have found these two dips
  • Lemon Cilanro Eggplant Dip
  • Feta and Herb Dip
Both look possible on SW as a free food but i need to know the ingredients in british metric.

Lemon Cilantro Eggplant Dip
2 whole(s) (1 pound each) eggplants , each halved lengthwise
4 clove(s) garlic, unpeeled
3 tablespoon(s) tahini, sesame puree
3 tablespoon(s) fresh lemon juice
60 mls loosely packed fresh cilantro or mint leaves, chopped
Toasted or grilled pita wedges
Carrot and cucumber sticks and red or yellow pepper slices

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a 15 1/2" by 10 1/2" jelly-roll pan with nonstick foil (or use regular foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray). Place eggplant halves, skin-sides up, in foil-lined pan. Wrap garlic in foil and place in pan with eggplants. Roast vegetables 45 to 50 minutes or until eggplants are very tender and skin is shriveled and browned. Unwrap garlic. Cool eggplants and garlic until easy to handle.
When cool, scoop eggplants' flesh into food processor with knife blade attached. Squeeze out garlic pulp from each clove and add to food processor with tahini, lemon juice, and 3/4 teaspoon salt; pulse to coarsely chop. Spoon dip into serving bowl; stir in cilantro. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours. Serve dip with pita and vegetables.

Feta herb dip
1 can(s) white beans, rinsed
180 mls nonfat plain yogurt
120 mls crumbled feta cheese
1 tablespoon(s) lemon juice
1 teaspoon(s) garlic salt
1 teaspoon(s) freshly ground pepper
60 mls chopped fresh parsley
60 mls chopped fresh dill
60 mls chopped fresh mint
60 mls chopped fresh chives

Place beans, yogurt, feta, lemon juice, garlic salt and pepper in a food processor and puree until smooth. Add herbs; puree until incorporated. Chill until ready to serve.

Nojo on the YoYo
Cilantro is coriander (leaves, not powder), eggplant is aubergine

I don't know how you can get a millilitre of something that isn't liquid. Google should be able to help.
15ml is one tablespoon and as vixxter already said cilantro is coriander (but usually in it's fresh form, not the ground stuff) and eggplant is aubergine.

Most home type stores, do little measuring cups you can buy, which have 1/4 cup 1/3 cup, 1/2 cup and 1 cup measurements (or even a jug usually has those measurements on in cups and ml's) and you can also buy spoon measurements in 1/4 teaspoons, 1/2 teaspoon, 1 teaspoon and a 1 tablespoon. I have seen them in Wilkos and Ikea. They come in really useful if you can get some, and are much quicker for measuring out things.


Poundland baking section sometimes have measuring spoons, and baking cups. Well worth a wee visit for goodies.

There is a very similar aubergine/baba ganoush dip in this months magazine if you fancy it? I will PM you later with it when I am home.
