Love chia seeds? Turn it up a notch with basil seeds. They bring a similar texture and pop to every savory bite of this yogurt tzatziki dip. Serve it up with fresh or roasted veggie dippers.
  • 250 nonfat Greek yogurt

  • 1 teaspoon basil seeds

  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon zest

  • 1/4 teaspoon Garlic Granules

  • 1/2 teaspoon Oregano

  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper

Cooking tip
  1. Basil seeds are black, tear-shaped seeds that, like chia seeds, have a gelatinous outer layer when wet. Also called Sabja seeds, they are the seed of the sweet basil plant native to India. Basil seeds absorb and take on accompanying flavors and provide texture and body without adding oils or fats, making them a great addition to smoothies, sauces, and dips. They can be purchased from specialty and natural food stores as well from many online retailers.


  • 1 Mix all ingredients in medium bowl with wire whisk until well blended.
  • 2 Refrigerate at least 1 hour to allow basil seeds to hydrate and flavors to blend before serving.
