Albanian & Vegan: Tarator

„Do you like tzatziki? Then you will love this dish!“ That´s what Corinne told me and after I tried her Albanian dish „Tarator“ I´m telling you the same! By the way – I love tzaziki!

Corinne lives in Paris now but her parents originally come from Albania. That explains why she knows so much about the Albanian cuisine. She wrote me to skype and cook with her and I gladly followed that invitation.

What we made is called Tarator – a cold dish made from cucumber, (vegan) yogurt, garlic, walnut and dill. It´s pretty popular in Bulgaria, Turkey, Serbia and some other countries as well but you will find its delicious roots in Albania.

Tarator

  • 500 g vegan yogurt
  • 1-2 cucumber, grated (do not peel them)
  • dill (a lot)
  • 100 g walnuts, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive or walnut oil
  • salt to taste

Put together grated cucumber and yogurt. Add a lot dill and stir.
