Yogurt is one of my daily essentials. Especially Greek yogurt! That’s why I am so excited when I was sent a copy of Yogurt Every Day by Hubert Cormier. Yogurt itself is awesome. It is great for your gut health with its probiotic properties. Yogurt isn’t just a breakfast item – I can eat it breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Yogurt Every Day cookbook includes 75 delicious recipes. It even teaches you to make your own yogurt (dairy and plant-based) at home! For now I will stick to store bought Greek yogurt…
- Quick history of yogurt – it’s always fascinating learning about history. It dates back to 2000BC in Persia and India where yogurt was used as a preservative for milk.
- Health benefits of yogurt – proteins, fats and substitutes.
- How to make you own yogurt – without a yogurt maker, with a slow cooker
- Recipes – breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and desserts. This includes dips and spreads.
There are 75 delicious recipes to choose from. They are well written. Short and concise. I like how the recipes gets to the point without the bullshit. I like the delicious food photography of mouthwatering healthy meals. Most importantly, nutritional value is included with every recipe. If you are meal planning, it makes meal prepping much easier.
My favourite recipes that I’ve bookmarked include:
- Coconut Yogurt
- Soft Boiled Eggs and Green Pea Salad
- Healthy Exotic Bowl with Dragon Fruit and Lychee
- Dips – Baba Ghanoush, Beet Hummus, Edamame Dip
- Stuff Potatoes
- Amaretto and Espresso Cake
- Banana, Walnut, and Toblerone Bread
For those that know me, knows that I love a good avocado toast. Who doesn’t like an avocuddle every now and then? When I first saw the Edamame Dip recipe, I had to make it ASAP!Print
Move over avocado, this Edamame Dip makes a great Edamame Toast or as a snack with chips!
