Preparation time Prep: 10 mins
chill 15 mins
Skill level Easy Peasy

You will need:

  • 1 ½ cups plain, unsweetened coconut yoghurt
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, grated, then squeezed to remove excess liquid
  • 2-3 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 2-3 tablespoons chopped mint
  • 2-3 tablespoons chopped dill
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • Zest & juice of 1 lemon


  • 1Simply combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Season with salt and pepper to taste, starting with very little, remembering that lemon juice can make foods taste saltier than they are.
  • 2Cover and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes to allow the flavours to infuse.
  • 3Give the tzatziki another good stir, check the seasoning, then spoon into a serving bowl and serve.

Tip: Pack your favourite flatbread or pita pocket with some juicy tomato and red onion slices, shredded lettuce, olives, jalapeños, and some grilled plant-based meat or felafels — then drizzle with this creamy homestyle tzatziki for a delicious kebab-style wrap!
