Do you love sandwiches or bowls with a lot of sauce?! Then you should definitely try this vegan garlic yogurt dressing.
If desired add some herbs like chives, parsley and / or dill and you'll never get bored with this quick garlic sauce.
You only need a handful of ingredients to stock a sauce and to make an outstanding meal out from your usual food.
When you like italian dressing or caesar dressing this vegan garlic salad dressing is one of the best.
Vegan Yogurt: I recommend taking unsweetened soy or almond based yogurt. This yogurt serves as Ayran substitute (Turkish yoghurt drink).
Sweetened yogurt makes the sauce just too sweet and I think it does not come across as delicious as with unsweetened yogurt. I tried both, as it's hard to find unsweetened yogurt in stores here in the US.
I can recommend the Kite Hill plain unsweetened yogurt if you are looking for an unsweetened yogurt.
Apple Cider Vinegar and Lemon Juice: Adds the typical acidic taste of a kebab sauce. Lemon juice also supports iron absorption, thanks to its vitamin C.
Sea Salt: Kebab sauce is usually a sauce made from Ayran. Ayran is a salty yoghurt drink. To get the taste that way, we need some salt. I would start with 1 teaspoon sea salt and see how it tastes.
Cashew Butter or Tahini: To get a creamy consistency, I recommend the addition of Tahini or cashew butter, which makes the vegan garlic sauce creamier.
Fresh garlic: In a garlic-yogurt-sauce fresh garlic should not be missing. Fresh garlic gives the sauce a special note. Garlic powder is not exactly the same as fresh garlic.
To make the vegan yoghurt sauce, we just need to mix all the ingredients together and let it absorb the garlic taste.
If you can't find a plain unsweetened yogurt.
I have great substitute for you. You can first use white beans instead of the yogurt and blend it in a high speed blender.
Or you can use cashew cream to make it even creamier.
I made it also with a sunflower seed cream and it turned out well.
You can make this vegan garlic sauce in 5 minutes.
Take all the ingredients and put them in a mixing bowl. Use a whisk to mix them until very creamy.
If you find it hard to get the nut butter / tahini creamy just blend it with the water in a high speed blender.
Taste with sea salt and pepper.
The sauce stays in the fridge for about 3-4 days. We have not froze the sauce so far.
I would be happy to read some experience below. Please keep the sauce in a sealable container, such as preserving (Mason) jars.
At the top of the list is the vegan kebab. The sauce tastes perfect with the Turkish food.
ry the vegan garlic yoghurt sauce as a salad dressing. We love it.
It also tastes excellent as a dip for raw vegetables and / or potato wedges.
If you like to prepare sandwiches and wraps, then you should try this sauce on your next sandwich.
Do you like Falafel too? If you want to eat it something other than a Tahini sauce, then prepare this tasty sauce.
Tofu skewers taste great with this delicious garlic yoghurt dressing.
Tips & Tricks
I recommend using unsweetened yogurt. You can also use homemade unsweetened yogurt. So far, I have used soy yoghurt and almond yoghurt for this delicious, sugar-free dressing.
Use fresh garlic or garlic powder? I recommend fresh garlic here. Simply for the delicious taste of fresh garlic, you should already resort to fresh.
However, if you do not have some fresh, you are welcome to use the powder. However, the sauce will taste a little different than with fresh garlic.
If you like this sauce but you want some variation? Here I can recommend adding some herbs like parsley, chives or dill.
