Here’s my idea of a quick ‘sauce’ that can be dolloped over slow-cooked lamb or barbecued lamb cutlets. It also really lifts roasted eggplant to a whole new level. What’s more with yoghurt as the star, it’s also healthy and easy. I like recipes that require a minimal amount of effort and don’t chain me to the kitchen for hours. This is definitely one of those!
- 500g tub plain Greek yoghurt
- 1 small cucumber, grated including the peel
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- Juice of ½ lemon (1-2 tablespoons juice)
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh dill or parsley
- Freshly ground black pepper
