To make this tzatziki, you will need:
- Unsweetened plain coconut yogurt: a good source of calcium. Just 1 cup of So Coconut Milk Yogurt has almost 40% of your recommended calcium and is also fortified with vitamin D and vitamin B12. Substitutions: I haven’t tried any other yogurt, but I think any plain yogurt will work.
- White vinegar: vinegar has no health benefits, but adds a nice refreshing kick to this sauce.
- Fresh dill: besides fruit, herbs are the most healing foods of them all. They are loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents that help fight off disease. Fresh herbs are best, but dried also have health benefits and work better for certain recipes. Substitutions: you can substitute 1 tbsp of fresh dill with 1 tsp of dried dill.
- Pure maple syrup: although high in sugar, is loaded with 24 antioxidants that help protect against free radical damage. It also contains anti-inflammatory properties that help to protect against chronic diseases, brain inflammation, intestinal inflammation, and nerve inflammation. Therefore, pure maple syrup is a great natural sweetener when used in moderation. Fake maple syrup is made with high fructose corn syrup and provides zero health benefits. Substitutions: agave nectar.
- Garlic powder: like other vegetables in the allium family, garlic contains sulfur compounds (sulfites) that assist with protein synthesis and the building of cell structures. Substitutions: you can replace 1 garlic clove with 2 tsp minced garlic or 1/2 tsp garlic powder.
- Onion powder: contains only trace amounts of vitamins and minerals.
- Sea salt: a natural alternative to table salt, which is more heavily processed and contains additives.
