This tzaiki is super easy to make, is beautiful and creamy, has fantastic fresh herbs and can accompany a large variety of dishes.

Tofu is a bland flavour and you can't taste it at all in the dish. It just becomes creamy and is the perfect base for herbs.

Preparation Time: 2 hours (fridge time)
Cooking Time: 0 minutes
Makes: 1 bowl

One box silken tofu
Juice of one lemon
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
2 -3 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons olive oil
Pepper to taste
1 cucumber
2 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
2 tablespoon of chopped fresh mint

In a blender blend the silken tofu, lemon juice, vinegar and 1/2 tsp salt. When creamy, add the chopped garlic and oil. Blend again and pour into a bowl.

Taste, add pepper to taste and more salt if needed. Set aside.
Grate the cucumber and squeeze out as much water as possible. I use a tea towel.

Add the cucumber, chopped dill and mint and gently stir until well combined.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours for the dip to set and the flavours to develop.
