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
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.
Our body is our subconscious mind, and anybody who thinks that their conscious mind is running the show is seriously mistaken. In fact the conscious mind just may be the most narcissistic entity in the universe, it thinks it's running the show. It's not.
