Craving a vegan yogurt dip that involves minimal chopping and cleaning? Let me introduce you to haydari, yet another Turkish version of a delicious tzatziki dip. Step-by-step video with instructions is available.
Remember when I said that in the majority of Turkey, tzatziki isn't really considered a dip, but rather an appetizer soup like gazpacho? Well, if you were wondering if there are any Turkish dip dips—here is one.
Haydari is one of the easiest dips to put together without compromising anything from the flavor. That is, if you like mint... because there is a lot of it in this recipe.
Ingredients for Making the Best Turkish Vegan Yogurt Dip
- 1 ½ cup dairy-free yogurt*
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon fresh dill, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh mint, finely chopped
- ¼ cup dried mint
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- pinch of salt
*For yogurt, I like using the "sharp" homemade variety in my guide; otherwise, Kite Hill or Forager work great. Just make sure the yogurt is unflavored and unsweetened, and preferably not made of coconut as it usually lands too much of its own flavor.
How to Make the Turkish Vegan Yogurt Dip (Haydari)
- Combine and mix all the ingredients.
