SO HOW'D IT GO?

I made this tonight to go with falafels I made and man was this good! It was so yummy. I used follow your heart sour cream and dill instead and it tasted EXACTLY like the real thing. I made a whole big batch of it and will use it at a tailgate on saturday with pita chips.

Try Whole Soy brand. It doesn't have that weird taste.

Having never made (or even had) Tzatsiki before, I don't know what its supposed to taste like, but it sounded good, so I went for it.  Also, having never used soy yogurt before, I didn't realize that it was  so gross....now that I read some of the other reviews, I wish I had used the sour cream instead....then I would have probably liked it more....not bad, but next time I'll sub for the yogurt....

This is good stuff - make it - I used mori-nu silken and ate it within 20 mins of prepping so the consistency was quite runny but the flavour was all there.  I had dairy tzatsiki in the fridge and tried them both simultaneously and, you know, I preferred this version  ;)b

Hi, I used the Toffurti "Better than Cream Cheese". It was an accident but with the help of a full small lemon worth of juice it turned out fine :) Also unlike the Sour Cream/yougurt version it only needs a light chill instead of the full 2 hours because it's already firm enough :)

This was AMAZING!  I used about 5 small cloves of garlic (because my husband and I are garlic freaks).  This was better than any Greek restaurant we have been to.

Thanks!

This was pretty good, I have never made Tzatsiki before and I have been looking for a vegan version for a while. I also used Tofutti Sour Supreme because I can never find plain soygurt here, and I also added about four cloves of garlic tee hee!
Thanks!

this is the exact recipe my aunt from greece uses.  when she came to visit, we couldnt find yogurt, so we used tofuttis sour cream and it worked out really well.
