Vegan Tzatziki

by Valentina Concordia

2min read

There isn’t anything that this bright and creamy vegan tzatziki doesn’t make better - from toasted bread and crackers to fresh veg and crisps. It also only takes 5 minutes and one bowl to pull together - no food processor, no blender. Win win. 

A good thing to keep in mind when making tzatiki is that the flavours get stronger the longer the dip sits. The garlic, for example, becomes more pungent (and delicious) as it infuses into the yoghurt, so I tend to grate it in no longer then 20-30 minutes before I'm planning on eating it or serving it. If you're very sensitive to the flavour of garlic or want to make the dip a while in advance, you can also put the garlic cloves in whole and remove them right before serving. It also takes a little while for the yoghurt to absorb the lemon, salt and olive oil so if you taste it straight away and feel like it could use extra of these, wait a few minutes and then taste it again to avoid running the risk of over salting it.

Cook Time

0 mins

Serves

4-6

Ingredients

Tzatziki:
400g plant based greek yoghurt (we used oatly) 
2 cloves garlic
250g cucumber
3 tbsp olive oil 
½ lemon, juiced
1 tsp salt 
⅛ tsp freshly ground black pepper

Method

STEP 1

Add the yoghurt to a bowl. Grate the garlic very finely into the yoghurt. For a less intense garlic flavour you can also add the cloves of whole, and remove them before serving. 

STEP 2

Using the largest side of a box grater, grate 200g of cucumber into the bowl. Reserve the remaining 50g for later. 

STEP 3

Add the olive oil, lemon juice, salt and black pepper to the bowl and mix it for 1-2 minutes to combine it. Let it sit for 10 minutes, then taste it for salt and adjust to taste. 

STEP 4

Serve the tzatziki topped with a drizzle of olive oil, the chopped cucumber and freshly ground black pepper.
