Simple and refreshing! Tzatziki can be used as a savoury dip, spread or side-dish!
Last week (in lockdown) Koen and I decided to have a 'date-night-in' to celebrate the opening of Sunny Mummy! 14 Years ago on one of our first dates, we went to our local Greek restaurant because well... back in those days we were just happy about the free ouzo on arrival to be honest! Haha! Since then we have visited Greece on holidays and I always craved Greek food while pregnant! If I really think about it... WHY do I really LOVE Greek food?!... It HAS to be because of the Tzatziki (meze) dipping sauce! When we ordered take-in last week, we requested an EXTRA Tzatziki and to my shock they charged us 3 euro and 80 cents for the tiniest little tub?! I wasn't so mad about the money, I was more mad about the size! SO I decided to make even more extra of my own - with a twist of course! ...
Boost Me! Tzatziki
- 1/2 a cucumber
- 250 g Greek yoghurt
- 2 tsps Boost Me!
- 1-2 cloves of garlic
- 2 tsps of extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 squeeze of lemon
- Salt and pepper to taste
1. Peel and cut the cucumber in half (length ways) and remove the seeds.
2. Grate the cucumber and squeeze out any excess water.
3. Peel the garlic cloves and mince them finely
4. In a bowl mix the yoghurt, garlic, olive oil, lemon and Boost Me! together.
5. Once well combined, add in the cucumber and stir well again.
6. Cover and place in a refrigerator.
7. Serve cold with warm (Turkish) bread, green olives, cucumber, carrot and paprika sticks! Enjoy!
Tip: Perfect for a light and healthy snack OR as an extra-extra side to your Greek take-a-way! lol
