tell me instead of taking the seeds out of the cucumber can a seedless be used or will it change the texture. also the split pea soup was great, even with the large ham bone thank you so much. i purchased a salad spinner, i find that if i take all the water out of the lettuce it is a bit too dry, what do you think, thanks for all the expertise. i love all the videos
I can't get thick yogurt in my area. And sour cream isn't cheap. In place of these, I strain my yogurt first.
Put an amount of yogurt in a cheesecloth or old dish-towel and knot the top with a twist tie. Then hang it in the fridge above a bowl to catch the water.
This method results in a thick yogurt that can take a bit more moisture from lemons, etc. And with the addition of vinegar and salt, it makes a great sour cream substitute.
Thick Greek yogurt is the best but straining the yogurt is a good idea. I have also had to do this a few times. Yogurt that is less thick also has less calories so that is good. I am currently in love with a Greek yogurt that is so thick it is like cream cheese...yum!
Made this last night with the hummus, greek chicken and the lemon potatoes and it was great! Probably one of the best tzatsiki's I've had. I think the key is to not process the cucs, onions, herbs, garlic too much as it adds a great thick texture. Brilliant.
While it is at it's best closest to when it is made, it is still very good even after a few days in the refrigerator. You will likely just have to remix it a bit as the water from the yogurt will separate a bit. Cheers!
So very easy...who knew! I followed the chicken broth recipe with a whole chicken and now have a delicious broth ready for soup and dinner base for tomorrow. I sliced the chicken breast meat which remained quite tender, caramelized some onion and served on a lovely bread toasted lightly on one side and topped with tzatziki. My partner is falling in love with me all over again. Spanokapita is in the works for tonight so my first ever homemade tzatziki is probably not going to last past this evening. I think I am addicted to Rouxbe!
