This recipe blew me away! We are pretty new to vegan cooking. I thought there was no way this would compare to my regular tzatziki recipe. Wow, was I wrong! This is AWESOME!! I didn't have silken tofu~~only extra firm regular tofu. Other than that, I followed the recipe to a "T" and used it in pita bread with falafel and tomatoes. YUM!! Thanks SO much for sharing! I think I may cut down on the garlic just a tad next time, but otherwise it was PERFECT!!! This will become a staple in our house! :O)

This is absolutely fantastic, honestly, no one would know it doesn't have dairy products in it. I would easily serve this to non vegan friends and I bet they love it! Very creamy, does not have a funny tofu-ish aftertaste or texture, just really very good-thanks so much for sharing!

I just made this wonderful recipe and the taste of tofu was barely discernable. I would recommend going easy on the garlic, but apart from that it tastes like the real thing. Great to be served with lebanese bread...
