I haven’t soaked them before cooking them, which many recipe ask to do, I believe soaking them take some of the taste away and they are as crisp as they could be. I use tzatziki to replace ketchup or mayonnaise, to make it healthier. Ketchup is pretty high in sugar and mayonnaise… no need to explain. So if you are watching your weight or on a diet, this is the way to go. Tzatziki can be done within minutes, although it’s better if you let it marinate a bit, let’s say minimum an hour in the fridge. I’ve added extra flat leaf parsley to it, just because parsley is supposed to be the”magical herb” to lose weight… Also gives some color and flavor to the dip.

 

So let’s get ready for the game!
