Here at Delish, yogurt is very much not just for breakfast. Sure, it brightens up every parfait or cinnamon roll overnight oats, but it’s so much more than that. It adds richness and tang to all our favorite marinades, desserts, dinners, and soups, and is a staple in so many different cuisines, from Greek food to Indian food. After trying all these delicious yogurt recipes, you’ll see just how much yogurt adds that certain je ne sais quoi to your favorite recipes.
First things first: When it comes to choosing your yogurt, do yourself a favor and go full-fat. Whole milk is your friend here, adding more richness and flavor possible to these recipes than 0% can. 0% could never!! We’ve even seen 10% yogurt at the stores (no surprise, it’s incredible). Want to make your own? Try our Instant Pot yogurt recipe.
Some recipes call for just regular plain yogurt or Greek, so do keep that in mind. Greek yogurt is a strained version of yogurt, which means it will be quite a bit thicker, making it perfect for tzatziki sauce, halal cart-style white sauce, and Greek feta dip. After you try those, you’ll have to check out all our favorite Greek yogurt hacks and swaps.
Yogurt also lends an incredible acidic brightness that perks up any marinade, sauce, and soup. Marinating lamb or tandoori chicken with yogurt helps to tenderize the meat and imparts insane amounts of flavor. We also love drizzling it when finishing our mulligatawny soup and green goddess soup, and swirling it into a lentil dal or tuna salad.
