Yogurt is spreading its culture in global recipes

With efficiency and grace, yogurt is stealing the spotlight on menus worldwide. Gone are the days when yogurt was only served with breakfast or as a healthy snack. As Canadians continue to crave global cuisine, this smooth operator is here to stay.

Already a dominant presence for breakfast, yogurt is a natural in all menu dayparts and well beyond a traditional tzatziki.

Greek yogurt, for instance, with its creamy, dense texture, is an excellent substitute for many ingredients; having — in some cases — less fat and more protein than other ingredients is a bonus. Yogurt provides a fresh, tangy pop of flavour in your favourite recipes.
