Tzatziki dip (vegan)
Perfectly creamy and flavour-packed
- ½ Cucumber, peeled
- 1 cup Plain soya yoghurt
- 1 Clove of garlic, pressed
- 2 tbsp Dill, dried or fresh
- 2 tsp Lemon juice
- to taste Salt and pepper
- a few sprigs Fresh mint
Don’t get me wrong – most of the time I’m happy to devour veggies dipped in hummus, but sometimes it’s nice to mix things up. Give me a bag of tortilla chips and a Tzatziki dip and I’ll call it dinner.
This soya yoghurt sauce made with fresh cucumbers and fresh mint is a classic. It can be served with an endless amount of veggies, crackers or tortilla chips. So if you need an appetizer in a hurry, look no further!
Peel and slice the cucumber in half lengthways, scrape out the seeds then grate the remaining cucumber.
Place the grated cucumber in a sieve and rest it on a bowl. Give it a little stir, and leave to drain. If you're in a rush, you can get rid of the excess moisture by pushing the liquid out with the back of a spoon.
Combine the cucumber with plain soya yogurt, lemon juice and pressed garlic cloves. Finely chop the dill and mint, then fold through the cucumber mixture. Season with salt to taste.
