Tofu Tzatziki

tzatziki

It has been really fun playing around with tofu. Who knew it was so versatile?? I wanted to make tzatziki for veg burgers and other things. (the 2 yo loves it and will eat it with a spoon!) I bought too much tofu this week, so I decided to try it as a replacement for the usual sour cream and yogurt. Success!!

Tofu Tzatziki
 
Ingredients
  • 12 oz extra firm tofu
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 cucumber, seeded, grated, and squeezed of its liquid
  • 2 tsp dill
  • 5 T lemon juice
  • 2 T white wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Put all ingredients, except cucumber, into food processor. Whiz until smooth. Fold in the cucumber. Adjust seasonings and acid to taste. Best if allowed to mellow for a couple hours before serving.

I pulsed the cucumber in the food processor because I didn’t feel like grating it. When I’m not in a tofu phase I use 2 cups greek yogurt, and I sometimes add to that 1/2 cup or so of sour cream. (but only if I have it on hand. usually just yogurt.)
