I have been making tzatziki sauce for years an vegenizing my recipe was a breeze I basically just switched out greek yogurt for non dairy coconut yogurt (not sour cream!) It’s ready in no time! No cashews or tofu needed! You'll love it with my Vegan Gyros, mmm! and it can be enjoyed all year round, February, March or December -anytime!
What are the ingredients in vegan tzatziki?
Super simple ingredients folks! They are plant based dairy free coconut yogurt, grated cucumbers, lemon juice, dill pickle juice! - say what? Trust me its good! Fresh garlic, salt and pepper, pinch of granulated onion and garlic and an optional splash of vegan Worcestershire sauce (really good too if you have some kicking around in your fridge)
How do you make Vegan Tzatziki?
First grate a long English cucumber and place in a strainer over a bowl. Grab a handful at a time and squeeze out as much liquid as you can. Add to a medium mixing bowl as you go. No need for a food processor!
Add remaining ingredients and mix everything together. Season with more salt and pepper to taste if necessary and or lemon juice if needed for more zip. Drizzle with olive oil and some fresh chopped dill if you like. Serve right away or refrigerate for later to let the flavours meld and to thicken more. For full recipe ingredients and instructions see recipe card below.
Where can you buy dairy free yogurt for tzatziki?
A lot of grocery stores carry different brands of dairy free yogurt now. I usually buy mine at Walmart. Look for non dairy greek yogurt! The creamier the yogurt the better the tztaziki sauce!
