I had no idea making your own Greek Style yogurt could be so simple!
I was beyond happy (and relieved) to find there were only three steps to the process. It really was as simple as it looked. The first step was to mix a sachet of yogurt powder with room-temperature drinking water (15-20°C) in the EasiYo jar — by giving it a good shake.
Then I had to add boiling water to the yogurt-maker and place the jar inside. After that, it was just a case of leaving it to do its thing and set for 8-12 hours, before placing it in the fridge to chill.
And...ta-da! There you have it: Thick and creamy Greek Style yogurt. As if by magic.
What also struck me was the volume of yogurt I'd got from just one sachet.
I was desperate to make several dinners involving my home-made yogurt (mostly so I could revel in the deliciousness of what I'd made). And after browsing the EasiYo recipes, one thing became clear: Yogurt is ridiculously versatile. You can use it in so many meals — both sweet and savoury.
1.On Monday, it was all about crispy chicken burgers — with a tasty and incredibly easy coleslaw to go with.
5.Vanilla pancakes — with honey and berries — took our Friday ~brinner~ supper to the next level.
Beyond these simple recipes, you can use yogurt in so many salads and dips, cookies and tarts, and various types of home-made bread like focaccia, garlic and herb knots, or this zucchini bread, which I'm 100% making next...
Who doesn't love a bit more freedom in the kitchen!? Which reminds me...did I mention the yogurt-maker requires no electronic parts or power, so you can keep it anywhere on your bench-top and move it around freely? Another bonus!
