Tatziki Powder

We had curry lamb sausage,rice,hummus, naan and peas and the tatziki complemented it perfectly.

Tatziki powder made with the last of the cucumbers from the greenhouse. So it’s actually just cucumber powder . But then I got thinking I could combine all the dry ingredients and just add yogurt when we want tatziki. Then it would be tatziki powder. Which isn’t often so I talked myself out of that. This is the complicated way my brain works. It’s hard being me.

Also we are entering the phase of my wardrobe called Relic from the Beachcombers. #iykyk

Anyway, you call it whatever what you want. I can’t see me using cucumber powder for anything other than tatziki but one never knows.

The perfect accompaniment to curried lamb and rice, naan and hummus. I dehydrated the cucumbers on low until crisp, then grinded them into a powder. It’s shelf stable, stored in a mason jar, with a cover out of sunlight for about a year.

To make the tatziki, combine the following in a mason jar:

2 tsp dried dill
1 tsp garlic powder
4 tsp cucumber powder
1 tbsp water (omit if you want it thicker)
1/2 tsp salt

Then add 1 cup plain yogurt.

Put the cover on and shake vigorously.

Chill before serving. And this is even better the next day when the flavors meld together more.

I love that I can whip tatziki up for dipping anytime of the year with our homegrown cucumbers.

Love Jenn xx
