(Norsk version: Tzatziki og Greske brød )
I absolutely love to grill, and I make my own marinades and sides. Now that BBQ season has long since commenced, I think a BBQ-series on my blog will do just nicely. First up I present two Greek favorites, both very tasty, super versatile – and they are both super-duper easy-peasy! Let us start with Tzatziki and Greek breads. Try these with a light salad or any fish, meat or foul from the ol’ Barbie! Or – just enjoy the Tzatziki and Greek bread together for lunch or as a snack! Yummers McYummerface!
- 1 cucumber
- 4 garlic cloves
- 3 deciliters Greek yogurt
- 1/2 teaspoon salt (to taste)
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper (to taste)
Roughly grate the cucumber. Have the shredded cucumber in a colander and let drain for about 10 minutes.
Finely chop garlic, or use a garlic press, and mix with yogurt and drained cucumber. Season with salt and pepper.
Refrigerate for about an hour to allow the tastes to set.
- 200 grams Greek yoghurt
- 150 grams plain flour
- 1.5 teaspoon baking powder
- 0,5 teaspoon salt
Light the grill and place the pizza stone on the ol’ Barbie, if you have one. Yu can also use a dry frying pan on medium heat, or the oven on 200 C.
Mix flour, baking powder and salt. Mix flour mixture in yogurt a little at a time, until dough is almost not sticky. Divide the dough into 2 or 6 parts, dust your baking surface and press the dough pieces flat, ca. ½ cm thick.
Move the pizza stone over on the cold zone of the grill and place the bread on it. Or bake them in a dry, but heated frying pan. Or in the oven on 200 degrees C. Grill the bread until they are nice and golden on both sides.
