Cucumber-Mint Dip

What you will need for 8 servings


  • 2 cucumbers
  • 2 tbsp dried or fresh mint
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 kg unsweetened soy yogurt

Shopping tip

You can get dried mint in the Asian market or in oriental stores.


Step 1- The cucumbers

  • Wash and peel the cucumbers and grate them with a coarse grater.
  • Sprinkle with 2 tsp of salt and let them steep for 10 min.
  • Then remove the water from the cucumbers. Either drain the cucumbers through a fine mesh sieve or simply squeeze them with your hands. 

Step 2 - The rest :)

  • In a large bowl, add the cucumbers, 2 tablespoons of mint, 2 teaspoons of lemon juice and 1 kg of soy yogurt, mix everything well and salt to taste.


If you have fresh mint left over, you can simply tie it upside down to a window or door handle with a rubber band and let it dry for about 3 days.
