Sofra in Cambridge has been my go-to lunch spot for about 6 months now. I work nearby and love everything about this place. Most of the time I am in a hurry so I grab one of their stuffed flatbreads to go, but when I have a minute to stop and really enjoy my lunch, I like to go inside and relax with some crick-crack crackers and selections from the Mezze Bar. The only problem is that the first thing I tried from the Mezze Bar was so amazing, that I can’t seem to try any of the other choices! Their beet tzatziki is so appealing to all the senses that my brain refuses to let me order anything else.
I had a craving for this tzatziki on a non-work day, and we all know the last thing you want to do on a day off is to go anywhere near work, so I decided to make some at home. I switched it up a bit, either because I was in the mood for smoother tzatziki, or because I was too lazy to shred the beets and just felt like throwing the whole mess into the blender.
