This vegan tzatziki is super easy to throw together and has a fantastic flavor similar to conventional tzatziki. Serve with pita, chips, or veggie sticks.
- 1 1/2 cups medium-firm tofu
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, plus more to taste
- 1 tablespoon white vinegar
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic (2 cloves)
- 1 cup grated cucumber
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint
- Celtic sea salt, to taste
- Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Throw the tofu, olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, and garlic into a food processor fitted with the s blade, and pulse until smooth.
Place the grated cucumber in a cheesecloth or paper towel and wring out as much moisture as possible.
Add the cucumber and mint to the food processor, and pulse just a few times until well combined. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Transfer the dip to a bowl, and chill in the fridge for about 2 hours until thickened. Transfer the mixture to a fine mesh sieve, and push the excess water through with a spoon.
Serve with veggie sticks, pita bread, or chips, or slather on wraps or sandwiches.
The dip will keep in a sealed container for about 5 days.
