Vegan Radish Tzatziki

I had an abundance of red radishes recently and, after roasting a few and pickling a bunch, I needed a creative way to use up the rest of them.⁣

Cool, creamy, tangy tzatziki is one of my favorite dips, and I’ve got a wicked dairy-free version in my first cookbook that has fooled many non-vegans into thinking they were eating the “real deal”.  I decided to mix it up by swapping the cucumber for radishes, which add a nice peppery bite (and gorgeous pink hue) to this delicious condiment.

Radish Tzatziki pairs perfectly with my soy curl shawarma recipe from The Budget-Friendly Vegan Cookbook, and also works well as a veggie burger topping, a veggie platter dip and so much more. And since radishes are always in season, you can enjoy this condiment all year long.
