Here is my recipe to make you own delicious, tasty and creamy Vegan Tzatziki. A Greek inspired dip sauce – with so much good flavor. Serious good and makes me swoon.
First make sure to have some good naturel, vegan yogurt. It brings the perfect creamy base for this dip. Next comes some finely grated cucumber, pressed garlic, squeezes of lemon juice, a little oil, salt, and pepper! Last but not least is dill or parsley, which adds some good much-needed herby flavor.
I made this a Vegan Tzatziki version with naturel yogurt but coconut yogurt works perfect as well. Just be sure to use a light and dominant-free creamy yogurt. But there is plenty of ingredients to add too: Vegan mayo, cashews or other whole foods.
Don’t forget to decorate your final green result with some fresh chopped parsley or dill leaves, one teaspoon of olive oil, salt, pepper and a drizzle of sesame seeds.

What to eat with Vegan Tzatziki dressing:
When I made this Vegan Tzatziki I ate it with the best Grilled Flatbreads – recipe here. I know, very simple and doesn’t look at much. But it was actually the best meal I’ve made in a long time! I still remember the taste of cold creamy tzatziki together with these crispy warm flatbreads.
.. Talking about flatbreads. I know it might seem to be a big weekend project to make homemade flatbreads. But it’s actually easy. Make the dough, put the breads directly on a warm pan, over fire or on the grill. And voilà – you have one of the best summer recipes in a long time. I store my breads in the freezer (to make them last longer).
But back to the title question. What to serve with vegan tzatziki? And my answer is simple because I eat it with almost anything.. With salads, with chickpea patties, in big salad bowls, or you can also use it like a dip for french fries.. In Denmark we eat a lot of rye bread too. And toasted danish rye bread with cold tzatziki is also a winner! You can use some toasted rye bread pieces, flatbreads or biscuits – and turn this easy recipe into a starter or snack – in no time!
