I absolutely love greek food! Fresh and full of flavour this bowl is such an easy baked ‘sheet’ tray, (think, ‘cheat’ tray), which simplifies cooking without compromising on taste or texture. This low net high fibre healthy fat meal is bursting with goodness, loads of veg and is a real comfort bowl that will make you feel satiated and energised. The kale crisps up beautifully in the oven, which gives your bowl some texture and crunch. The Greek herbs add a depth of flavour, whilst my Tzaziki pairs perfectly giving the baked salmon and veggies a creamy zesty freshness! Feel free to switch out the salmon for whatever protein you prefer.
My tzaziki is dairy free, of course using my raw greek style fermented coconut yoghurt -recipe you can find HERE. I also have a coconut yoghurt recipe made with canned coconut you can find HERE. Making your own coconut yoghurt at home is so easy and I show you how you can create that authentic tangy yoghurt flavour via the production of lactic acid without the dairy. Lactic acid is a bi-product of bacterial fermentation and the probiotics they give off help to proliferate your good gut buddies in your microbiota. It is much more beneficial for your health to make your own coconut yoghurt without the stabilisers and sugars in store bought. It also makes for the most delicious tasting Greek tzaziki for this recipe.
