Original Greek Tzatziki has many advantages: It is healthy, quick and easy to prepare, keeps your wallet in a good mood and the shopping list nicely arranged. Let’s take a look on the ingredients:
- Garlic: Spicy, slightly hot and dominant – Garlic can not simply hide behind other ingredients themselves. On the contrary, garlic is often the dominant ingredient in many sauces and dips. Even a small clove of garlic is enough to make dishes really fire under your butt. Tip: Crush the peeled garlic clove instead of slicing it or putting it all in court. This is how garlic best develops its aroma.
- Cucumber: Cucumbers have a cooling impact due to their high liquid content and are relatively low in calories. Tipp: Rub the cucumber in a sieve and squeeze it out, then place it on kitchen paper for a couple of minutes. So it won’t get your homemade tzatziki too waterish.
- Greek Yoghurt: Tzatziki is made with authentic Greek yogurt. It is creamy, slightly thicker and more intense in taste than regular yogurt. Greek yogurt also has low carbohydrate content and high protein content because it is dehydrated.
