Any ideas what I can make with unsweetened yoghurt

It is regular yoghurt - seems "irregular" to me to have sweetened yoghurt

Why cut and paste one thread into another? Very confusing and hard to read - just bump the earlier thread if you think we need it

Marinade chicken pieces in a mixture of spices, yoghurt, garlic and ginger. Bake in the oven in a casserole dish and serve with veges or a salad, and potatoes baked in their jackets, or rice. Yum!
Lamb pieces are great done the same way.

Smoothies and definitely use it for dressings etc, lots of variations there. I always use it rather than mayo etc.

Chef_wildflower, Aug 9, 7:16 pm

Throw it out. as with all cow PUS.

Chef_trogedon, Aug 9, 11:02 pm

Mix something sweet into it & see if it tastes like regular yoghurt.

Chef_nisty, Aug 9, 11:06 pm

Then give it the heave.

I did Tzatziki the other day with silverbeet, from a recipe on the Bite website, was sooo good! Used 1 cup Greek yoghurt.

Chef_wildflower, Aug 10, 3:28 pm

I mix plain yoghurt with tandoori paste and lemon juice, then marinate chicken pieces in it, and bake. SO good!

Chef_lyl_guy, Aug 13, 2:08 pm

Lemon Yoghurt Cake
This recipe has been in the family for over 25 years it was given to my Mother a friend in Seattle hence the use of a "bundt" tin. Bundt tins are available for sale in our catalogue. The cake keeps extremely well and freezes beautifully. Just remember to grease tin well with butter and dust with flour,shaking off the excess before filling with mixture.
1 & 3/4 cups caster sugar
rind 2-3 lemons
2 eggs
1 cup sunflower oil
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup plain unsweetened yoghurt (not low fat)
2-3 tsp lemon juice
2 cups self raising flour
Beat eggs,oil,sugar and peel together in a large bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients in the order above. Butter and flour a 24cm bundt tin . Bake at 180C for thirty minutes. Test with a cake tester. Let cake rest only 5 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack. Dust cold cake with sifted icing sugar.

You can do a yogurt masala which has 3-4 love's of garlic, chopped, 2.5cm of fresh ginger, chopped, 1tsp cumin seeds, pinch of nutmeg , 1 1/2 tsp salt , 3/4 cup yoghurt , 1 tsp peanut oil, 1 tbsp tomato sauce, 2 tsp lemon juice. Red food colouring is for that red tandoori colour but you don't have to use it. Just blend together and spread all over chicken , rub it in really well and refrigerate overnight

Mango Lassi

For 2 smoothies:

Blend together ½ can drained mango slices, ½ cup plain
unsweetened low-fat yoghurt, ½ cup low-fat milk (or almond milk),
1 cup crushed ice, and 1 teaspoon honey.

Pour into glasses and enjoy.

Muffins - simply use yoghurt instead of the given milk quantity. I find that it is sometimes necessary to add a little milk as well to get the correct consistency e.g. as in this recipe:

3 cups plain flour (450g)
1 tbsp baking powder
3 tbsp cocoa
1½ cups brown sugar (360g)
½ cup each of dark chocolate dots and white chocolate dots – or chocolate buttons, quartered
120g butter, melted
1¼ cups milk or 1 cup natural unsweetened yoghurt + ½ cup milk
2 x 60g eggs, lightly beaten

Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease a 5cm muffin pan.
Sift the flour, cocoa and baking powder into a bowl. Add the brown sugar and dark and white chocolate dots. Mix, then add the melted butter, milk (or yoghurt and milk) and eggs and mix well. Three-quarters fill each of the muffin moulds.
Bake at 180°C for approximately 20 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes in the tin before turning out.

Other suggestions -
Quick Onion Yoghurt Bread (recipe available at )

1 x 85g packet jelly crystals
250ml-300ml boiling water
1 cup (250ml) yoghurt

Dissolve the jelly crystals in boiling water and leave until beginning to set. Add the yoghurt and beat well until frothy. Pour into glasses or a serving bowl and refrigerate until set. Serve with fruit.

Hope that helps. :-))

Tip it all into a sieve lined with a paper towel or cheesecloth and place over a bowl. Put it back into the fridge and leave to drain. The whey will separate out into the bowl. The remaining yoghurt has now become a sort of cheese. You can add chives and other things to it to make it more tasty and eat it as a cheese. It has quite a bite but if you like that sort of thing it is really delicious.

They whey can be used in other cooking projects in place of milk.

Relpace milk with yogurt in any muffin recipe. Also make a Dip to go with lamb with yogurt mint sauce and a little honey. Nice with pita breads too and greek salad.

Chef_tjman, Aug 28, 3:36 pm

I do this and use the whey as part of the stock in soups or sauces etc. Also used it when making scones too

Chef_nauru, Aug 28, 5:09 pm

we like it in mashed potatoes in place of milk.
I can vouch for cookessentials lemon yoghurt cake it is delicious. I freeze left over plain yoghurt in cup portions and use it to make her recipe. It works beautifully.

Chef_lynja, Aug 28, 8:29 pm

Chef_amanda_simonp, Aug 28, 8:51 pm
