10 Ways To Use Greek Yogurt

I’ve mentioned before that Greek yogurt is one of my favorite foods, and something I always have in my kitchen.  I love the tangy flavor, and the thick consistency.  I also love the fact that it’s a healthy food – low in sugar, high in protein and full of probiotics, or healthy bacteria, which help your GI tract and immune system.  It’s a food that I could (and usually do) eat every day.   The small containers make a great, portable snack, but I also keep a few large containers of plain yogurt on hand, because it’s a healthier substitute for sour cream, mayonnaise or butter, and there are so many ways to use it.  Here are a few suggestions – click on the photo for the recipe:

[box] Tip! Cold yogurt can curdle if heated too quickly, or added to something hot, so make sure you temper it – warm it a bit by adding some hot cooking liquid to the yogurt, while stirring well. Then add the warmed yogurt to your recipe.  Full fat Greek yogurt is a bit more stable and won’t curdle as easily.[/box]
