SAM'S YOGURT CHEESE SAUCE - A refreshing side, great for digestion!

Updated: 5 days ago


Pretty obsessed with this side / sauce / dip.

It is refreshing and great for digestion!


Tips:

I like to use herbs fresh from our garden. If you have an indoor plant, that works too since this recipe only needs a small amount for flavour.


I would also recommend making this recipe ahead of time since flavour will grow as ingredients have time to set / combine.



Tools:

  • Bowl

  • Spoon or fork

  • Measuring cup and measuring spoons

  • Cutting board

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup soft cheese- in the picture above I used a soft goat cheese. Other ideas are found in the picture on the above left. Soft cheeses are usually bought submerged in water.

  • 1/4 cup plain or sour yogurt- above I used a homemade plain yogurt that has no sugar added.

  • 2 tbsp minced fresh onion

  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar

  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh mint leaves + garnish piece

  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley leaves

  • Sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste


Method:

  • In a bowl, add your soft cheese and yogurt, then stir well. Use the yogurt to reach a consistency you like.

  • Mince onion until the juices are released and add it into the bowl.

  • Rub the herbs between your hands to release moisture and then chop them fine. Add them into the bowl.

  • Add a dash of apple cider vinegar and then sea salt / fresh ground pepper to taste.

  • Stir well and it is ready to use. Once flavours set it will become even more flavourful.


Meal Idea: Eggs with Mushroom & Yogurt Cheese Sauce

Breakfast for us is usually pretty simple (and quick), some sort of egg dish with a cappuccino.


In the summer I like to eat yogurt with fresh berries, but in the winter, when it is much colder I like to create flavourful sauces and dips as another way for a healthy dose of probiotic yogurt! For example the recipe above would be paired with the meal below.


Tools:

  • Cast iron pan

  • Spatula

  • Plates & utensils

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs

  • 6 chopped mushrooms

  • 1/4 onion chopped

  • 2-3 tbsp lard- our fav comes from Murray's Farm & Butcher Shoppe

  • Sam's Yogurt Cheese Sauce- recipe from above!

  • Sea salt and fresh ground pepper


Method:

  • Heat your seasoned cast iron pan to medium. Add 1 tbsp of lard.

  • While the pan is heating chop your veggies and then add them into the pan.

  • Lightly salt the veggies. Once they have brightened and softened move them to one side, making space for the eggs.

  • If you need more lard, add it, let it melt and then crack the eggs into the pan.

  • Cook the eggs to your liking. In the picture above they are done over-easy. Meaning they are cooked on medium/low heat on the one side until almost ready and then flipped quickly on their back to seal the yolk before they are moved to a plate.

  • At this point the veggies are probably done and it is time to dress your plate.

  • Garnish with yogurt cheese sauce, hot sauce, mint and a cappuccino!!! :)
