Recipe: Tzatziki Inspired Sauce

photo 1 (4)Tzatziki sauce is one of D’s favorites.  Seriously, he’ll put it on almost anything.  Without dairy or cucumbers this could be a challenge, but challenges are our specialty.  The question, of course, is can we create tzatziki sauce without the two primary ingredients, greek yogurt and cucumber.  The plan follows our favorite dairy alternative, coconut, and to add as many other Mediterranean flavors as we can to satisfy the masses.  Try it for yourselves and tell us how we did.


  • 1 Can Coconut Cream (Found at Trader Joe’s)
  • 1/2 Cup Onion (Chopped)
  • 1 Bunch Fresh Parsley (Chopped)
  • 2 Tbsp Chopped Garlic
  • 1 Tbsp  Lemon Juice

We used a small food processor and combined the ingredients with the Coconut Cream one at a time.  We then left the mixture in the refrigerator overnight to allow the flavors to marry.  We served this with potato chips but this could have easily been served with a number of other fine allergy safe products.

D’s Review: Frankly, this is not Tzatziki.  It tries, but the desire for the tart yogurt dip was not fulfilled.  Perhaps more lemon juice, switching parsley for dill, adding oregano or using coconut yogurt will work better for next time.  These things said, it didn’t taste bad.

T’s Review: I might not not be as obsessed with this sauce as D is.  I thought it was pretty darned close and LOVED it.
