4 Comfort Food Recipes With a Healthy Twist
Brrr! When the weather outside turns frightful, comfort foods taste delightful. Your soul craves satisfying, savory stews and gooey, cheesy casseroles. Who can resist a decadent dessert served warm directly from the oven? As you know, Illinois winters can linger for months and continuously feasting on calorie-laden comfort foods can pack on pounds. Problem solved. I lightened up four classic winter comfort foods without losing their traditional rich flavor. They’re my go-to recipes when my family wants a cozy meal with a healthy twist.
Nothing says comfort better than creamy, mashed potatoes. My recipe for Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes with Garlic and Chives skips the spuds and features pureed cauliflower with the perfect blend of herbs and garlic. The same savory mashed potato flavor for half the calories.
