I’m Sorry Grandma, it’s Vegan Cashew Tzatziki

Vegan tzatziki. Yep, I did it—and before I dive into this recipe, I feel like I owe an apology to my family. I must admit making this dip didn’t feel right. It was like I was cheating on my Greek family . . . but then I tried it. Oh my gosh: it’s pretty damn close to the real deal and so flavorful. Suddenly my guilt evaporated, and I was surprisingly happy that I made it!

This dish is traditionally vegetarian and often accompanies me at the table with all my vegetable recipes. I decided why not make it vegan and add it to my list of plant-based recipes that everyone must have, and I certainly do not regret it. It doesn’t lack flavor, creaminess or strength. It’s completely balanced with the amounts of fat, acidity and salt—I know you will love it!
