Recipe for easy and fuss-free tzatziki made with grated zucchini, garlic, and lemon sauteed spinach

400 gr spinach cleaned and chopped
5 ml olive oil
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
1 juice from one lemon
salt and black pepper to season
200 gr zucchini (2 medium-sized) grated and drained
1.5 cups natural yoghurt
1/2 cup parsley finely chopped
1/2 cup fresh basil finely chopped
10 ml good quality olive oil
lemon juice for extra seasoning
salt and pepper season to taste

How to
First off, prepare to cook the spinach by heating the olive oil in a saucepan. Saute the garlic for a minute and then add the spinach and allow to cook until wilted, for about 5 minutes.

Drizzle with lemon juice and season. Leave to cool. Set over a strainer to drain. Once cooled, chop the spinach up. Prep the rest of the ingredients.

Next, simply combine the cooled down spinach with the grated zucchini, yoghurt, herbs, lemon juice, olive oil and seasoning.

Serve with toasted pita bread. Keeps in the refrigerator for up to one week.
