Roasted Cauliflower Recipe
- Yummers, bang bang sauce is so good it makes everything taste better. However, it's also very high in fat and calories because of the mayo, so it's a treat I can't eat that often and that makes me sad.
So sad, in fact, that I searched for a way to make it a bit less fattening and then served it with yummy crisply baked cauliflower, sticking with my healthy vision. It was absolutely delicious. The key to this healthier version was Greek yogurt.
I got the idea when I was snacking on snacks I had vowed to give up while watching the season finally of “Game of Thrones.” It's hard for me to believe they kill off so many of my favorites on that show. I'll absolutely go ballistic if they off Tyrion Lannister. He's my favorite character.
Anyway, I decided then and there I'd find a way to make all my fav's a little less calorie packed and the bang bang sauce was first on my list. I perused the net and found the idea, Greek yogurt, of course! Instead of breaded deep fried cauliflower, I opted to bread it and bake it to cut the calorie count even more and lower the risk of clogging my arteries.
If you're making the cauliflower for a meal, rather than just a delicious snack, skip the breading and drizzle on the bang bang sauce. It keeps it healthier and is truly a low cal option. I'm a huge fan of dipping, so I put the sauce in ramekins and let each person decide whether to drizzle or dip. Dipping lets you get more sauce and the cauliflower simply becomes the vehicle for you to do that.
