When I buy yogurt, I make a commitment. I’m talking about a 35.3-ounce, eating-yogurt-for-a-week tub. It’s the most affordable option, and while I love tangy, filling Greek yogurt, I’m not immune to breakfast fatigue. So, I stir spoonfuls into chili, slather it onto crusty sourdough, or whip up a creamy dressing. But those are just drops in the bucket. I need more substantial ways to empty my container.

Hungry for more, I combed through our site for savory ways to make yogurt a non-breakfast meal. Here are 11 of my favorites.
