This savory yogurt recipe with harissa and za’atar is simple, healthy, tangy, and refreshing. It’s an unexpected and wholesome breakfast recipe.
I think we’re all familiar with that sweet, delicious taste of fruit on the bottom yogurt cups or drizzling honey and granola on top of our greek yogurt. I will personally never turn down a vanilla yogurt studded with fresh blueberries.
I had kind of an overwhelming, sugary weekend though and I wanted to spend this week moving away from starting my day with sugar-heavy cereals and yogurt. When I start the day with something sweet (it does not help that there is a pie shop literally in my apartment building!), I keep wanting the same flavors throughout the day. I’m not cutting out sugar, because I do believe in a life of balance and because I like trying new things – here’s my simple take on a savory yogurt recipe.
