skinny cheesy cauliflower gratin

skinny cheesy cauliflower gratin | my skinny sweet tooth

This is another recipe that came on a whim. I knew my intentions for how it would come out, but I had originally bought a head of cauliflower to make my skinny general tso this week. Well, that was until my husband saw the cauliflower waiting patiently in the fridge and was really wanting to try my recipe. (He works night shift, so he hadn’t tried my general tso yet. Our eating schedules are off … and quite frankly, he likes his meat: chicken, beef, you name it) So I was really excited that he wanted me to save it for this weekend. Awesome!

Instead of having the cauliflower sit in the fridge all week, I decided to roast it up. I also had a 1/2 empty jar of light alfredo sauce that needed used, so that started the wheels to turn and eventually I came up with this. 🙂 It’s garlicky, cheesy, and I’m very happy with how the gratin turned out. It would make a great side dish or even a vegetarian main dish. The portions are a hefty size (which I love 😛 ) but feel free to adjust serving sizes to accommodate you and/or your family.

mango wasabi salsa

mango wasabi salsa | my skinny sweet tooth

One of my favorite restaurants here in Louisville is “Dragon Kings Daughter”. Consider it a Mexican & Japanese fusion. When we dine here, I always order their wasabi salsa. It is to die for. The menu description seemed easy enough, so I knew I had to try and recreate it at home. So, that I did 🙂  It’s refreshing and complex yet has a surprising note from the wasabi. The flavors blend so well, especially when chilled for an hour (thats when the magic happens!). Plus, instead of just using it to dip tortillas into, it would be great on top of chicken, fish tacos, or scrambled eggs. (Just a few ideas 😉 )

In honor of Memorial Day, this would be a great addition to take to all those cook outs and pot lucks. Something different. Something familiar. Something DELICIOUS.
