Herbed "Yogurt" Dip & Spread

"Yogurt" Dip With Herbs 
Herbed "Yogurt" Dip & Spread is a very easy and quick dip to serve with crackers and veggies. I cobbled this recipe up when I decided to serve fresh veggies as a starter impromptu and didn't have much time before the guests arrived. I quickly prepped some fresh veggies and stirred up a bit of yogurt with the herbs and a pinch of onion flakes; much to my delightful surprise, the dip got rave reviews and everyone wanted the recipe! So here it is.

Now that a vareity of non-dairy yogurts are available, this dip is easy to make. I used to make it with  homemade "yogurt" (soaked and ground cashews/almonds with a bit of lime/lemon juice to give the tangy yogurt taste).

If your yogurt is a bit on the runny side, line a strainer with a piece of clean muslin or tea towel and and add yogurt (stir in a pinch of salt first as the salt helps to remove moisture); place the strainer over a bowl and put in the fridge. Let it drain until desired thickness is achieved.


Greek style plain, unsweetened "yogurt", any type
Dried Onion flakes, crushed using a mortar & pestle
Dried Italian Herbs
Dried Oregano
Salt and Freshly ground Black Pepper to taste


Combine all the ingredients in a bowl; reserve covered tightly in the refrigerator until time to serve. That's it!

Serve with assorted veggies and/or crackers of your choice. Enjoy!!
