Posted on: April 8, 2015

I am back on the WW wagon and trying to find healthy and wholesome snacks that are not too ‘expensive’ on the points but fill me up! This has a bit of protein and fibre so you feel sated and not running for the chips! Make up a batch and keep it on hand!

Ingredients:

  • 5 cups of cauliflower florets
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 can of canneli beans (white kidney), drained and rinsed
  • 1/3 cup low fat mayo
  • 1/4 cup fat free yogurt, plain
  • 1 tsp grated lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp of your favourite seasoning (Cajun, curry, indian spice, Lebanese spice, Mexican etc)

Directions:

  1. Toss the cauliflower with the oil and roast in the oven at 400, turning once, until tender and golden. about 20-30 minutes.
  2. In the food processor, puree the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Add in the cauliflower and puree till smooth.
  4. Enjoy with fresh cut veggies or crackers of choice.
  5. **For dairy-free option use goats yogurt or soy yogurt.
