Over 2000 years ago Socrates stated “All disease begins in the gut”. Clearly not – but most symptoms of IBS start in the gut and having a dip made with lactose free Greek yoghurt will help keep it calm and symptom free if you have lactose intolerance! Tzatziki is so refreshing and great for long hot summer days and a suitable accompaniment to barbecue meats and fish. So make this easy recipe and enjoy! You could also make this dish suitable for a low fibre diet (if your dietitian has advised it) by peeling and removing the seeds from the cucumber before preparing the dip.
150 g Lactose free Greek yogurt (I purchased it from Tesco)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Cut the cucumber in half and grate one half
Squeeze out all the juice
Chop the other half of cucumber into small cubes
Squeeze a lemon and add a tablespoon of juice to the yoghurt
Then add the cucumber and mix well
Serves 2 as a starter or dip with gluten free Pitta bread.
