When you grow up in a family of 3 sisters, someone or the other’s always on a diet! My #mummas tip: Add a generous glug of Extra Virgin Olive Oil for a creamy almost mayo consistency without the calories!



Serves Preparation Time Cooking Time
 4 People  45 Minutes  5 Minutes

Ingredients 

  • Yogurt – 400 gms or 1 Tub
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil – 30 ml
  • Pepper – 1/2 tsp
  • Garlic – 3 cloves, minced
  • Salt – to taste
  • Red chilli flakes (optional) – 1/2 tsp
  • Coriander – 2 tsp, finely chopped

Method

Step 1

Empty the tub of yogurt into a clean muslin cloth (or your husband’s handkerchief, you know, the one he can’t find) and tie the ends into a knot. Hang this from a dishrack, tap or any other convenient space where you can place a dish underneath to collect the watery part that will drip, and leave for a half hour or 45 minutes, until most of the liquid has drained. Remove, untie and place this hung yogurt into a mixing bowl.

Step 2

Add the garlic, salt, fresh pepper and chilli flakes if using, and mix till just combined.

Step 3

Then add the olive oil, a little at a time, and mix gently until the mixture achieves a creamy consistency. Sprinkle the coriander on top, adjust seasoning if required and chill until needed.

Step 4

Serve this dip with freshly cut vegetables like cucumber, carrot sticks and celery, or creamcracker biscuits for a healthy, low cal snack!
