This is my ultimate Vegan Tzatziki recipe! Deliciously creamy, refreshing and, best of all, even though its dairy-free, it tastes just like the original!


  • 1 tub of Oatly Oatgurt Greek Style Vegan Yogurt (or similar alternative)
  • 1/2 large cucumber
  • 23 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • a pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp chopped dill or mint (optional)
  • 1 tbsp black olives


  1. To prepare your vegan tzatziki start by pouring the vegan yoghurt in a large bowl.
  2. Wash your cucumber, cut it in half and grate it using a box grater in a second bowl. You don’t need to peel it, just grate it whole. Using your hands, squeeze your cucumber shreds until all the water has come out. Place your dried out cucumber in the yoghurt bowl.
  3. Then, peel your garlic cloves and using a garlic press squash them into your bowl.
  4. Finally add your olive oil, vinegar, a pinch of salt and freshly ground pepper and mix it together using a spoon. Taste your tzatziki and, if it feels bland, add some more salt, mix it and taste it again.
  5. If you’re using any herbs add them now and using your spoon mix your vegan tzatziki again.
  6. Finally top your vegan tzatziki off with some olives, some chopped up cucumber and a drizzle of olive oil.
  7. Enjoy!
