  • Greek anyone?

    I have a lot of food allergies (gluten/wheat, soy, dairy), so everything I make is from scratch with some experimentation. Today I made a dairy-free tsatziki for all Greek lovers and it turned out great! Here are recipes for sauce and souvlaki:


    coconut cream from 1 can coconut milk - drained
    juice from 1/2 lemon
    1/3 English cucumber - grated and all juice pressed out & discarded
    2 cloves garlic - minced
    fresh dill
    pinch of sea salt

    Mix all ingr & refrigerate in sealed container for at least 2 hrs. Also makes a great veggie dip.


    pork or chicken cut in large cubes
    olive oil - enough to coat meat
    2-3 cloves (or more if garlic lover) minced garlic

    Mix all ingr & let marinade overnight in sealed container. Put meat on skewers & grill. Brush with mixture of olive oil & fresh lemon juice when cooked & serve with tsatziki & Greek salad.

    You know... you can make yogurt from coconut milk. If you did that you could use the resulting coconut yogurt to make the Tsatziki.

    I don't have a dairy problem and keep homemade Tsatziki around a lot to use on all sorts of things... sometimes I even drain it until it becomes like a soft seasoned cheese. Delicious!

    Congrats on finding your sub.
    I was just thinking that having the cultures in it might make it even better.
