Equipment

  • Peeler
  • Grater
  • Strainer
  • Mixing bowl
  • Cheesecloth

Ingredients
 

  • ¾ medium cucumber ($0.31)
  • 1 ¼ cups plain, unsweetened coconut yogurt ($1.64)
  • 3 tbsp fresh dill, minced ($0.27)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced ($0.08)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice ($0.18)
  • ½ tbsp olive oil ($0.06)
  • Sea salt & pepper to taste ($0.02)

Instructions
 

  • To start, partially peel then halve the cucumber. Deseed it with a small spoon (this is optional, but will prevent the dip from ending up too runny).
  • Then, grate the cucumber. Transfer grated cucumber pieces to a strainer, add a pinch of salt and set aside with a bowl underneath while you prep the rest of the ingredients.
  • Add Greek-style yogurt alternative (we prefer coconut yogurt), minced dill, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, and salt & pepper to a bowl.
  • After all other ingredients are in the bowl, squeeze out as much excess water as you can from the grated cucumber. A cheesecloth works great for this step. However, if you don't have one, just squeeze it with your hands!
  • Add grated cucumber to the bowl, and stir well. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Add lemon juice for more tang, dill for more herbaceous flavor, or garlic for more of a bite.
  • Serve immediately, or transfer to the fridge (it will thicken more as it chills). This tzatziki dip pairs well with warm pita bread, or as a spread in falafel wraps!

Notes

  • Recipe yields just about 2 cups in total.
  • While we prefer coconut yogurt, you can use whatever brand or style of plant-based yogurt you personally enjoy.
  • You can also make your own.
