Preparation of tzatziki sauce

  1. To prepare the vegan tzatziki sauce you have to start with the preparation of the cucumber. Take a potato peeler and remove the outer layer , then take a grater and, being patient, grate all the cucumber, paying attention to your fingers especially when you get to the final part.
  2. At this point, take the garlic clove and mash it in the garlic press. If you don’t have this tool at home, you can also use a teaspoon of garlic powder. In case you don’t like the taste of garlic very much, you can cut the clove in two halves, put it in the sauce to release the flavor and then eliminate it just before eating the vegan tzatziki sauce.
  3. Now switch to yogurt and in case you realize that it is too watery, you should let it strain. The ideal would be to put it in a cotton cloth with a bowl underneath and leave it in the fridge for about 8 hours .
  4. After the resting time you should see the watery part of the soy yogurt in the bowl and inside the cloth a much drier and denser mixture, ideal for yogurt sauces of many vegan recipes. Obviously this step is not mandatory but recommended in case you want a more full-bodied vegan tzatziki.
  5. Take a bowl, pour in the soy yogurt, grated cucumber, minced garlic clove, a pinch of salt, ground pepper, lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil.
  6. Mix all the ingredients with a spoon and leave to rest in the fridge for 2 hours .
  7. Pick up your tzatziki sauce and enjoy one of the easiest and fastest recipes ever.

And that’s it, we recommend combining it with the famous and timelesspita .
