js34603: What's wrong with sour cream that people want to replace it with yogurt? Is it a calorie thing?


That seems to be the idea.  Now me, I'm of the philosophy that "reduced-fat" or "fat-free" dairy qualifies as a processed food.  They have to take the whole-fat source and do things to it to make it appeal to the diet-conscious.  Since I'm all about as few middlemen between source and table as possible, I go for the original, full-o-fat milk, cream, etc.

It does count as processed food- and they often replace the fat with sugar in reduced fat stuff, which is a lot worse for you than fat is. The whole fat is evil thing never had any hard science behind it, it was a gut thing. Fat you eat turns into fat on your body, right? Turns out that's not the case. If you're worried about getting fat, the Glycemic load is what you should be looking at- your body turns sugars into fat. To turn fat into fat, it has to be turned into sugar first, then turned back into fat. Fat is much better on that front than sugar is. Also, alcohol has no effect- alcohol is not a calorie in the same way a french fry is. It doesn't go through the normal digestive process, and never gets turned into the glucose that gets turned into fat. Good news for the wine, cocktail, and spirits lovers- unless there's added sugar, they will never make you fatter. Bad news for beer lovers- nutritionally, beer is nothing but a shaitload of suspended sugars. Yes, even light beer.

Of course, types of fats matter too. Trans fats are indeed evil. Back away from the margarine, folks. Butter is better for you.

How to Drink All Night Without Getting Drunk

Koch told me that for years he has swallowed your standard Fleischmann's dry yeast before he drinks, stirring the white powdery substance in with some yogurt to make it more palatable.
"One teaspoon per beer, right before you start drinking."
He'd learned the trick from his good friend "Dr. Joe," a craft beer legend in his own right.  Educated at Harvard with a troika of degrees (a BA, a JD, and an MBA), Koch is no slouch, but the late-Joseph Owades was a flat-out genius. With a PhD in biochemistry from Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute and an early job in the fermentation sciences department at Fleischmann's, Owades probably knew more about fermentation and alcohol metabolism than perhaps any man who has ever lived.

That sounds like a great way to waste a lot of money and beer.

Mirrorz: To improve my meals I throw yogurt straight into the trash.


That 0% fat that everyone sells yogurt is awful. Only edible with lots of sugar and fruit flavorings.

To get full fat greek yogurt, I have to buy Vitamin D milk and make yogurt and strain it myself! Lot of work and it doesn't last long and I can never get the sourness just right but its better than the 0% fat stuff.

Favorite is Tzazaki sauce and also, marinade for Tandoori chicken.

Always good with fruit as well. Can always add it to any dip to get the creaminess and sourness.

My local Middle East place makes a fabulous dipping sauce with Yogurt - they add olive oil and some spices. I have never been able to replicate it.

For cold applications, yes.

In a cooked sauce I haven't found that yogurt works in place of sour cream.  Stroganoff and paprikash are in regular rotation in my kitchen and it's gotta be sour cream.

I can't stand the fat free stuff. It has a weird dry texture. The 2% is a good sour cream replacement though.

Purelilac: Greek yogurt recipes

Tzatziki (Greek Yogurt and Cucumber Sauce)
(Makes about 3 1/2 cups. You can cut the recipe in half, but it's so good, you really shouldn't.)

3 cups Greek Yogurt
juice of one lemon (about 3 T)
1 garlic clove, chopped
2 medium cucumbers, seeded and diced
about 1 T kosher salt for salting cucumbers
1 T finely chopped fresh dill (can substitute mint leaves for a slightly different version)
Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste

Peel cucumbers, then cut in half lengthwise and take a small spoon and scrape out seeds. Discard seeds. (If you use the small seedless or European cucumbers with few seeds, you can skip this step.) Slice cucumbers, then put in a colander, sprinkle on 1 T salt, and let stand for 30 minutes to draw out water. Drain well and wipe dry with paper towel.

In food processor with steel blade, add cucumbers, garlic, lemon juice, dill, and a few grinds of black pepper. Process until well blended, then stir this mixture into the yogurt. Taste before adding any extra salt, then salt if needed. Place in refrigerator for at least two hours before serving so flavors can blend. (This resting time is very important.)

This will keep for a few days or more in the refrigerator, but you will need to drain off any water and stir each time you use it.


Or you can cheat and just use pickles (there's your cucumber/dill combo in one).
