  1. 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)
  2. AMAZING! I couldnt believe how well this turned out! I wanted a quick and easy recipe to make to bring for Christmas Eve and this is perfect! Everyone, do not hesitate to try this, so fresh and flavourful, and I didnt even use fresh herbs either!

  3. Would never have known it was made with tofu if I hadn't made it myself! Highly recommend!
  4. Great recipe!! Even the non-vegans (including a 7year old) preferred this to the regular tzatziki.<br/>Definitely prepare this the day before if you can. We used "soft" silken tofu as it was all we could find last time (it turned out great so don't worry if you need to substitute) After souvlaki night it was used on pretty much everything...even as a salad dressing! Stock up on gum and mouthwash and enjoy!
  5. Yayyy! This blew me away ! I am new to vegan cooking and as a huge tzatziki fan (can u blame me, I have a background that's almost Greek) I wanted to give this a go. I had no white vinegar so I skipped that step but even so it turned out great ! Awesome recipe ! Its a must try I think :)


  1. Absolutely fantastic! I only used 1 small clove of garlic (unless you like your food very garlicky) and subbed champagne vinegar for white wine as it is the one I have on hand. Thank you so much for this fabulous easy recipe.


I am a vegan - and I love it :) My favorite cuisines are Mexican/American and Asian.
