simples, mas tem o seu truque | very simple, but still has it’s trick

Aproveitemos a fase que o iogurte grego está na moda, tzatziki é um dip incrível que fica bem com um pãozinho, com vegetais fritos, ou até mesmo acompanhando carnes… É bem fácil de fazer, o importante mesmo é salgar e escorrer beeeem o pepino antes, pra não ficar aguado!

Ingredientes –

200ml de iogurte grego (full fat, e não adoçado *peloamor)
1 pepino
1 colher de sopa de sal
1 dente de alho (ou mais)
um pouco de suco de limão
2 colheres de sopa de azeite extra virgem
endro e hortelã picada a gosto

Preparo –

Descasque o pepino (não precisa ficar perfeito). Corte-o pela metade longitudinalmente e retire e descarte o miolo das sementes com uma colher de chá. Rale as duas metades de pepino num ralador grosso. Coloque numa peneira e salpique com sal. Deixe escorrer enquanto prepara os outros ingredientes.

Descasque o alho e retire o miolo (é isso que causa aquele bafo! *ficaadica). Pique o alho beeem fininho, o mais fino que der!

Numa cumbuca, misture o iogurte grego, o alho e as ervas picadas.

Com as mãos, esprema líquido do pepino (quanto mais conseguir tirar, melhor). Junte o pepino ao iogurte.

Tempere com um pouco de suco de limão e cheque o sal.

Espalhe um fio de azeite de oliva extra virgem por cima.

I’m so glad we’re all going through a greek yoghurt phase now and you can find it everywhere! Tzatziki is an incredible greek dip that goes well with almost everything, a simple bread, fried vegetables or even with meat… It’s very easy to make, but it’s really very important to drain the cucumber very well so that the dip doesn’t get watery.

Ingredients –

200ml greek yoghurt (full fat and not sweetened)
1 cucumber
1 tbsp salt
1 garlic clove (or more)
a little bit of lemon juice
2 tbsp of e.v. olive oil
dill and chopped mint, to taste

Method –

Peel the cucumber (doesn’t need to be perfect). Cut it lengthwise and remove the seed part with a teaspoon. Grate the halves roughly. Put them on a sieve and sprinkle with the salt. Leave it like this for a while. In the meantime…

Peel the garlic and remove the core (this part is what gives bad breath!). Chop it veeery thin, as thinly as you can!

Combine the greek yoghurt, the garlic and the chopped herbs in a bowl.

With your hands, squeeze the cucumber to try to get out as much liquid as possible. Add it to the yoghurt mixture.

Season with a splash of lemon juice and check the salt.

Drizzle the olive oil on top and you’re good to go!
