Vegan Tzatziki

This tzatziki dip recipe is equally easy as delicious. Made with few ingredients, this is the perfect dip for pita, falafel, veggies and more.

Vegan Tzatziki

Ingredients

  • 1 cup packed grated cucumber (no need to peel)
  • 1.25 cup soft tofu
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp red or white wine vinegar (sub white vinegar if needed)
  • 1/2 tsp salt, or more to taste
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper, optional
  • 2 average-sized cloves garlic
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped fresh dill

directions

  1. Place the grated cucumber in a fine sieve or colander and add a little pinch of salt, toss to combine. Set aside in the sink or over a bowl.
  2. Add everything else, except for the fresh dill to a blender or use an immersion blender in a suitable container and blend into a smooth, creamy consistency.
  3. Transfer to a serving bowl or storage container and stir in the chopped dill.
  4. Go back to the cucumber and start squeezing and working the water out using your hands. Send a little time here, the more water you can squeeze out the better. You can also transfer it to a dish towel, wrap the towel around it to form a ball and twist and squeeze to get more water out. Keep working on it until you have roughly a ball you can squeeze in one hand, or about 1/3-1/2 cup.
  5. Add the drained cucumber to the tofu mixture and stir to thoroughly combine.
  6. You can serve right away or place in the fridge for an hour or two before serving for more flavour.
  7. Store the sip in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Notes

  • The cucumber can be drained using your hands or by placing it in a dish towel or paper towels and squeezing. The dish towel method is  the most effective-place the grated cucumber in the muddle of a towel, wrap it up tightly squeeze tightly until it’s no longer dripping liquid.
  • The olive oil thickens the tzatziki and makes it creamier but if you need the recipe to be oil-free, it’s okay to leave it out.
  • It will thicken in the fridge and there may be some excess water on top after storing depending on how well you drained the cucumber, just drain it off before serving.
