γεια σου • (geia sou)! that means hi in greek for all of my non-greek friends. this greek lady looooves a good vegan tzatziki, let me tell ya. back in the day before i went vegan, when we went to Greece during the summer, all i stuffed my face with was bread and tzatziki.
the authentic dish is laden with dairy but the good news is, us vegans or anyone looking for a dairy-free version can enjoy it too!
if you’re not a fan of garlic, this probs isn’t the dish for you because it’s heavy on it. personally, i LOVE it but understand garlic is not for everyone. however, if you do like garlic, you’re going to be in heaven.
so what should you serve this dip with? bread bread BREAD…..and then some more bread. lol, for real though, there is nothing better than tzatziki with a piece of freshly made sourdough that’s been lightly drizzled with olive oil and then toasted to crispy perfection.
now tell me, doesn’t that look positively amazing? Vegan Tzatziki Hummus can be eaten with so many other foods besides bread. try carrots, celery or crackers! want to know what it would be AMAZING with? PASTA! seriously, Vegan Tzatziki Hummus pasta sawceeee, ya heard it here first. if you try that, lmk how good it is!
ok, brb! finishing the tub of this in my fridge before Alex gets home because there’s a 100 % chance he will eat the rest of it.
