I’ve said it before that I love Mediterranean food. Tzatziki’s if you don’t know is a Greek yogurt sauce that is light, fresh, and creamy. This is a fully plant-based version of the traditional tzatziki recipe but with my own creative spin of course. This vegan yogurt dill dressing with cucumber noodles is made with cucumbers, garlic, olive oil, salt, lemon juice, dill, and of course vegan yogurt.
(Vegan) Yogurt Dill Dressing With Cucumber Noodles
It’s very easy to make at home and totally worth it. I used my own Homemade Vegan Coconut Yogurt with this recipe but you can also use other vegan yogurts like soy. Just make sure you get plain yogurt, I made the mistake of buying vanilla and it didn’t turn out the same :-)
This vegan yogurt dill dressing with cucumber noodles has a very similar flavor to the traditional tzatziki recipe, although the texture is not the same, since Greek yogurt is thicker and we are using cucumber noodles instead of chopping them and mixing them into the dressing. If you want a thicker texture, you can use a denser yogurt (if you buy it) or make your own homemade yogurt thicker.
If you don’t have vegan yogurt at home, you can substitute it with hemp seeds. It tastes just as great but with added protein power.Print
