I was making a Syrian dish the other day and the recipe called for plain low-fat yogurt. I didn’t have any on hand so I put it on my grocery list. It was the last ingredient I bought and I actually almost forgot it. Anyway, when I got home and got everything ready, I realized I had bought vanilla yogurt instead of plain. No way that was going to work!
I decided to try substituting Tzatziki sauce instead. I will tell you, it was delicious!!! We all forget things and need to improvise. If you forget the plain yogurt for a Middle Eastern dish, now you know to try using Tzatziki sauce. Yes…you can buy this at Costco!!!
