I've never even heard of yogurt being this specific...but I have a Rachel Ray recipe that calls for it...I know I could probably use something else, but still I'd like to make it as authentically as possible. happy

It is not always easy to find, a good substitute is a full fat yogurt from what i understand.

ok *dumb* question here...but I guess full fat yogurt is very fattening and unhealthy? Im looking for something healthy thats really good and kind of exotic to switch up using chicken since Im on a diet and Im trying to change things up so I dont get bored.

The only thing I can really make at the moment is like a chicken/noodle/vegetable stew

3 boneless chicken breasts
1 bag of frozen butter beans
1 bag of frozen squash
1 small box of elbow macaroni
1 can of diced tomatoes (optional)

I first make a stock with the three chicken breasts just by boiling them. Then add the frozen butter beans, squash and elbow macaroni. Let it cook for about 45 mins to an hr so all the vegetables get really well done. After that I add the can of diced tomatoes and let that simmer for about 10 mins. The can of tomatoes is optional like I said above. I dont add it every time, but its something different to give it more flavor. Also you can use just about any kind of pasta you want I suppose, I found that elbow macaroni works the best though. I've also substituted a few boiled potatoes for the macaroni

edit

Wow I just read up on full fat yogurt, nevermind, no wonder tandoori chicken is so unpopular with the health crowd lol

I can find it in Harris Teeter, but it's not in every grocery store. One of the characteristics of Greek yogurt is that it's thicker than normal yogurt. You can mimic this by lining a colander with cheese cloth and putting your regular yogurt in it for a couple of hours to drain.

I just substitute the non-fat greek for full fat yogurt all the time. All of the grocery stores around here have 1-2 different kinds of greek yogurt. And the draining of the regular yogurt works well too.

I even substitute the nonfat plain yogurt for half the mayo in things like potato salad, macaroni salad, etc.

Safeway and Giant seem to always carry Greek Yogurt.


Meanwhile, I can't find creme fraiche to save my life.

I find it all the time in Publix.

You can always substitute other plain yogurt, but be sure to drain it.  Put a paper towel in a strainer, and place the strainer over a bowl. Place the bowl in the fridge for about an hour.  When ready to use, just dump the yogurt out of the towel and it's ready to use.

you can make your own ... it is very easy


take a half gallon of milk --- heat it up to around 180 degree's and keep it there for about 30 minutes

allow it to cool down to between 90-100 degree's add in a cup of buttermilk --- let it sit in a warm location overnight

you can also flavor it with fresh berries and fruits (make sure to scald them with boiling hot water first to eliminate unwanted bacteria) add in a little sugar etc .....

if it is not as thick as you like it ... add in a little bit of fruit pectin
