When Greek yogurt first entered my life, I’d top a bowl with figs and walnuts, drizzle honey on top, and imagine I was in Greece eating breakfast overlooking the ocean. Now, I’m all about Greek yogurt for dinner.
Try this: I stir a dollop of a plain variety into warm food, right before serving—I’ve found that almost anything with Indian, Mexican, or spicy flavors benefits from a splash. Even better? I recently added some to a bowl of pasta with tomatoes, basil, and olive oil, and it instantly made a creamy sauce that reminded me of alfredo. That’s one of the best parts of adding Greek yogurt to savory dishes: it’s not only healthy, but fast and easy. Did you know that eating yogurt every day can have this amazing health benefit?
I keep finding inspiration in the recipes some of my favorite Greek yogurt brands are coming up with. Here’s what I’m loving:
• These cold sesame noodles from Chobani are unexpectedly delicious, and are one of my new favorite brown bag lunch recipes. And I love this idea of topping a sweet potato with chili and Greek yogurt, from Olympus.
What about you—got any Greek yogurt faves?
