Unfortunately, many world- famous foods originally are not vegan. But nowadays, thanks to the growing demand of vegan products, it’s quite easy to veganize almost everything. For example, do you know the famous Tzatziki sauce that is made with fresh cucumbers? Well, originally it contains milk products. But nowadays it’s easy to find unsweetened soy or coconut yoghurt almost in every supermarket, which you can use to make this quick and easy vegan Tzatziki.
Apart from all the other ingredients, Tzatziki is well-known for the fact that it contains fresh cucumbers. Even if you’re not a big fan of cucumbers, in this sauce they really fit perfectly. The mild and refreshing flavor of cucumber together with the spiciness of garlic and acidity of lemon juice make a divine combination of flavors. Tzatziki usually is served together with some bread snacks. But actually, you can use it together with everything that you want. For example, in my opinion it would taste great also together with my oven-baked vegan onion rings!
