Do you know a tasty, low-fat sauce that goes with steamed artichokes?

Question by Sara A: Do you know a tasty, low-fat sauce that goes with steamed artichokes?
*Sigh*. It’s time to diet. Hate it, hate it.

Anyway, one of my favorite foods is steamed artichoke which is (mercifully) very low in calories and high in nutrition. The only problem is that i like to dip said steamed artichoke in mayo. And oho! Fat free or low-fat mayo just won’t work.

Anyway, does anybody have a tasty and low-fat cold dipping sauce recipe, perhaps something involving plain yogurt? I’d really like to incorporate this into my regular diet.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Dijonaise (low fat and delicious product) with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a couple drops of honey.

I’m not a big fan on yogurt – I use lowfat cottage cheese blended until smooth. Sounds wierd but no one can tell.

  • Ultimate countertop oven with latest far-infrared heating element; Cooks, bakes, broils, fries literally any food you can imagine.
  • 2 pounds of low-fat fries from fresh potatoes with only 1 tablespoon of oil. Bakes pizza and cake to their perfection.
  • Cooks fresh and frozen foods, no need for defrosting or preheating; no need to add extra grease, removes fat and oils for healthier cooking.

  • 1550W power; 302-482 degree F thermostat; turntable baking rack, high rack, food tumbler, tongs, oil measuring spoon, extender ring.

Traditional deep fryers soak the foods you cook with grease that contains high amounts of saturated fats. This is why the Secura TurboFry Oven is so different. It uses only 1 tablespoons of cooking oil to prepare up to two pounds of French fries (weight of peeled and cut potatoes). Just how can this oven make this happen? The secret has to do with how it cooks. It uses a charged turbo fan that cooks the French fries with hot air as opposed to cooking oil that is greasy and fattening. The oven uses a food tumbler that will mix the fries and oil for best results. The cooking temperature is reached almost instantly by using an infrared heating element. These infrared waves cook the food inside out so that your food will be cooked thoroughly in the shortest possible time.

But I decided to give it another go. a lot of recipes call for frying it, but I got tofu for the purpose of eating healthy. Anyone know a flavorful, low fat recipe for tofu?
I should that I have firm tofu.
