Fitness Expert

An amazingly tasting recipe from the cookbook called The Mayo Clinic Williams-Sonoma, by John Phillip Carroll, 1998."The word "deviled" indicates that a dish includes mustard and spices. This flavorful, low fat mustard-based topping adds a devilish twist to steamed and then baked cauliflower.


  • 1 slice whole wheat sandwich bread
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup plain non-fat yogurt
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup Dijon-style mustard
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon or 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 2 pounds (1 large head) cauliflower, cut into florets

  2. With you hand, crumble the bread into a blender or food processor Pulse the machine on and off until the crumbs reach the desired consistency. In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs, dried tarragon, and olive oil. Stir until the bread crumbs are well coated with the oil; set aside.
  3. In another small bowl, stir together yogurt, Parmesan cheese, mustard, and tarragon; aside.
