How To Make An Easy Vegan Tzatziki (Cacik) Recipe

August 5, 2020

At What The Pitta, we prepare all of our ingredients from scratch, including the delicious tzatziki that we serve on both with our döners, chip boxes and falafel wraps.

What is tzatziki (Cacik)? 

vegan tzatziki recipe

Used as a sauce or dip, tzatziki comes from the food of Southeast Europe and the Middle East. It’s traditionally made with yoghurt, cucumber, garlic, salt, oil, herbs and sometimes lemon juice or vinegar. It’s a great addition to falafel dishes, to use as a dip with pitta bread or (of course) to drizzle on top of a kebab.

Here’s how to make our What The Pitta Vegan Tzatziki

Vegan Tzatziki Ingredients 

  • 1/2 Oatly Greek Style Oatgurt (or any other plain plant based yoghurt of your choice)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed or grated
  • ½ cucumber, diced or grated
  • 1 tsp salt (add more to taste if needed)
  • 1 tbsp dried mint


Pour your vegan yoghurt into a big bowl that will be suitable for mixing all of the ingredients.

Peel and crush 2 cloves of garlic. Add these to yoghurt.

Finely dice half a cucumber and add this to the mixture.

Finally, add 1 tbsp of dried mint and 1tsp of salt.

Mix all of the ingredients together and taste to make sure you’re happy with the seasoning. Add more salt or mint if required. The longer you leave it to rest the garlic becomes stronger and will taste much better!

Put it on your favourite kebab or use just as a tip for warm pitta beads.

Or in case you don't feel like cooking but still crave a delicious vegan tzatziki, you can always pop in in one of our stores.  We have 5 locations throughout the UK, 3 in London and one in Manchester and Brighton. You can find all our locations here.
