How to use this garlic yogurt dressing?

You probably saw my garlic yogurt dressing in my falafel recipe. It goes really well with falafel, especially if you serve it in a tortilla wrap with hummus, fresh salad, and tomatoes. It actually goes well in any kind of wrap or even in a sandwich! Of course, it goes well with a salad too!

Plain soy yogurt

Is soy yogurt considered a whole food? Probably not, but it is a “yellow” food for me. That means it is close enough to a whole food so it doesn’t have to be avoided but whole soybeans are preferred. I love to make yogurt dressings for salads and wraps, but I don’t make them on a daily basis. When compared to dairy yogurt, I would say it is a clear winner in terms of health. I also wrote an article about the most common myths and actual benefits of soy consumption for human health.

Fresh garlic and herbs

Usually, plain soy yogurt doesn’t taste very good. But minced garlic and herbs take it to a whole new level! A pinch of salt or even some paprika, and you have a whole new thing. If you don’t want a “garlic breath” use just a tiny amount of fresh garlic or use dried garlic instead. A little garlic really goes a long way in this recipe. You can add any kind of fresh herb, I like to add parsley or chives.
