Two for One Recipe Review

Sunday, May 19, 2013

Life's been a bit hectic lately, so I've fallen behind on my recipe reviews for my maintenance team. I'm going to review two new dishes I've tried recently here, Chicken Saté Wraps:

and Cauliflower Crust Pizza:

The chicken wraps pretty quick and easy to put together. I didn't have any broccoli slaw, so I just added more shredded carrots and also used regular white vinegar instead of the rice vinegar since I didn't have any on hand. After cooking everything, I wrapped the finished products up in parchment paper and put them in the fridge to eat over the next few days. Having sampled a bit while I was cooking everything up, I knew they'd be tasty and I was right! It's not quite like the curry flavor you get from using whole spices and slow-cooking everything, but these were really good and satisfying and perfect for lunch on the go. My husband really liked them as well, which is always a bonus.

I made the Cauliflower Crust Pizza for dinner tonight because I wanted my husband to finish off the leftovers from our rich dinner last night. After deciding how I wanted to top it, I entered everything into my tracker and saw that the WHOLE recipe would only be 435 calories. That meant I got to eat the whole thing! I'm often a bit skeptical of strange substitutes for my favorite treats, but something about this recipe intrigued me. I used a blend of oregano, parsley and garlic salt in the crust "dough" and used Fage Total 0% Greek yogurt. I topped the pizza with half a cup of spicy tomato sauce, two ounces of low-fat mozzarella and two tablespoons of parmesan cheese plus some fresh asparagus. The result was very interesting. It was definitely quite different from regular pizza dough, but tasty in its own right. I think next time I'll add the parmesan cheese into the crust dough to beef up the flavor even more. I also had problems with the crust sticking to the parchment paper, so I'll have to experiment with some non stick spray or corn meal. I love that this has so much protein for a vegetarian dish. I still have the other half of my cauliflower head left, so I'll most likely take another stab at this tomorrow.

Didn't get a photo of the chicken wraps, but they looked pretty similar to the one that's posted with the original recipe.

    I love satay. That recipe using rotissieri chicken looked easy and yummy. I have never tried the cauliflower pizza. I have made cauliflower rice and pancakes. Thanks for sharing. I think I will try both of them.

    Yum! Both sound great--I love anything satay, anything with peanuts. And I've made a Sparkrecipe for cauliflower-crust pizza before. I love pizza & really miss it in general, so it was great to find a yummy substitute for bread crust. I'll have to compare the one I used with yours.

Thanks as always for posting!

    I just checked out the Cauliflower crust recipe and will be trying it this week. Thank you for sharing this. I was surprised that you need to "get the water out" of the grated cauliflower. I plan on using mushrooms, onions and peppers. as my toppings. Have a great week and let's continue making healthy choices. emoticon
