Light recipes with yogurt
by Cristina Gambarini Contributor
Yogurt is a complete food that provides a good dose of calcium and helps the proper functioning of our intestines. Two reasons to never miss it from our tables, especially in summer
The sunny and hot days have finally arrived and with these temperatures they are preferred simple and fresh dishes. Salads, carpaccio, tartare, with light and low-calorie ingredients they are ideal not to feel weighed down and to lend a hand to the line in view of the next swimwear test. Nothing better then than preparing light recipes with The Yogurt, starting with breakfast, with fruit and cereals, and then continuing by combining it with meat, fish and vegetables. Here are some ideas.
Yogurt in the dough, with saffron and zucchini
This dish can be served both hot and cold, like a salad. Instead of cream, use yogurt, in which you will dissolve saffron, for a more particular taste. Sauté the chopped zucchini in a little oil and garlic, when they are stewed, add the yogurt and saffron off the heat, add a teaspoon of curry and season the pasta with this sauce (you can also use barley or spelled, as you prefer).
Yogurt sauce for tartare
Instead of seasoning the meat, accompany it with a fresh and light sauce that is prepared in no time: put some natural whole yogurt in a bowl, add a shallot browned in a little oil, curry and sweet paprika and mix. Aside, cut the beef pulp with a knife, compact it into small discs that you will burn in a non-stick pan for a few seconds on one side only. Serve the meat with the sauce and fresh chicory.
Salmon and yogurt cream
This is a dish that should be served cold. Prepare it like this: marinate the fresh salmon pulp with a pinch of sugar, a pinch of salt and some dill leaves. Cover with plastic wrap and let it rest for 30 minutes. Then slice the salmon and set it aside. Slice two courgettes lengthwise, cleaned and blunt, and sauté the slices in a saucepan without seasoning. Put a strip of salmon on each slice of courgette, roll it up and cut it in half to make smaller rolls. In a drizzle of oil, fry 2 spring onions cut into rings with chopped sesame seeds, parsley and marjoram. When they are browned, remove them from the heat and add the whole and natural yogurt, add salt and blend. Serve the yogurt cream with the courgette rolls and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
Yogurt gazpacho with vegetables and chicken
A very fresh aperitif, to be served in a dinner or even in a buffet, since it can be presented in a glass, to make its consumption easier. You will need 150 g of Greek yogurt, which you will blend with two slices of bread soaked in wine vinegar, a spoonful of sliced onion, 3-4 cherry tomatoes, a few basil leaves, salt and extra virgin olive oil. Put the cream in a tall glass, add a few bites of chicken or turkey browned in a little oil, salt and pepper and complete with carrot, courgette and celery sticks.
Soft yoghurt foam
You can spread this foam on croutons or serve alone or accompanied by fresh vegetables cut into slices. Take equal grams of Greek yogurt, whipped cream and boiled asparagus (100 g). Cut the asparagus tips and set aside, blend the rest of the asparagus and add 5 g of isinglass (per 100 g of yogurt) soaked and melted on the heat, cream and yogurt. Salt and season with salt. Put the foam in the fridge for at least two hours for it to set. Serve garnished with the asparagus tips and a few parsley leaves.
