Tzatziki is easily one of our favourite condiments. This garlicky yogurt sauce works especially well paired with falafels, vegetable skewers, or just to dip some bread into.

Best vegan Tzatziki!! I've already made this soo often :)


Nadine - Aug. 18, 2021, 12:07 a.m.

I love this recipe. It's simple and easy to make and so delicious! I make this multiple times a month and just keep it stocked in my fridge to use with many different recipes!

We're glad you're enjoying the tzatziki, Nadine! Thank you 😃

The best tzatziki recipe ever! I love how quick and easy it is. The first time I made it I forgot to squeeze the grated cucumber and have since learnt from this mistake. It perfectly accompanies a whole host of other recipes.

A huge compliment, Charlotte, thank you so much for sharing!

Super easy and delicious! We find it to be fantastic with falafel wraps and salads.

I love this. Before this recipe I wasn't able to try tatziki because I'm lactose intolerant (and now living that dairy-free life). I use an unsweetened coconut milk yogurt and find it's very delicious. It's a very refreshing sauce with falafel!

So thrilled you're enjoying this one, Catherine!

Delicious! I made this a handful of times. I sub soy yogurt for unsweetened vegan coconut yogurt by Riviera. I omit the oil as I am oil free and it is delicious! The whole family really enjoys it.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Melissa, it's so appreciated!

This is definitely my favorite vegan tzatziki and a staple with a lot of meals... and so simple to make!

Sadia, we loved the zatar wraps!! I didn't have zucchini but instead just used mushrooms, eggplants, red pepper, and carrots. Also lived the yogurt dip. You have inspired to cook vegan food 😋

PUL Team - May 22, 2021, 9:37 p.m.

So wonderful to hear, Mayura, thank you for sharing this with us! Lovely vegetable ideas as well 😃


Emma - April 28, 2021, 2:40 a.m.

I can’t find soy yogurt in my area. Will unsweetened coconut milk or almond milk yogurt work instead?

PUL Team - April 29, 2021, 1:17 a.m.

Hi Emma! Yes, another unsweetened yogurt will work. We hope you enjoy the recipe 🙂
