When I was a little girl, I was part of the Yoplait® craze that hit Nicaragua, and I preferred the natural flavor yogurt best. I would add a pinch of salt and put it in the freezer. There was nothing more refreshing on hot afternoons than sneaking to the refrigerator to enjoy a spoonful here and there. Years later, I’ve incorporated other add-ons (besides salt) in my repertoire, and roasted garlic is one of my favorites. I like the challenge of finding new recipes that will allow me to serve these creamy yogurt sauces, mixing them into my salads, adding a dollop to potatoes or corn, pairing with fish or chicken dishes and spreading over slices of toasted baguette. When I roast veggies, I take advantage of the warm oven to also roast some garlic, which I use to whip up this creamy yogurt sauce. I only need natural yogurt, olive oil, salt and pepper. I recommend preparing a batch of roasted garlic and storing it in a jar in the refrigerator with olive oil to keep it fresh. That way, you’ll have this savory ingredient on hand any time you need to make savory yogurt sauce in a pinch.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cauliflower florets
  • 2 cups baby potatoes, washed and cut in half
  • 12 whole garlic cloves (do not peel)
  • 1 cup pearl onions, peeled and cut in half
  • 1 cup Brussels sprouts, washed and cut in half
  • 6 mushrooms, cut in fourths

  • 1 rosemary twig
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, plus 1 tablespoon for yogurt sauce
  • 1/2 cup red and yellow cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup Natural Yoplait® Greek plain yogurt

    In a roaster or glass baking pan, combine the cauliflower, potatoes, garlic cloves, onions, Brussels sprouts, mushrooms, carrot and rosemary. Season with salt, pepper, and 1/4 cup of olive oil. Thoroughly combine and bake in the oven for 40 minutes, stirring the veggie mix occasionally. Add the tomatoes and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
  • 3
    Remove the veggies from the oven and set the 6 cloves of garlic aside. Cut the tip of each one with a knife. Press down on each clove to squeeze out the creamy, roasted garlic. Add the mash to a bowl. Incorporate the Greek yogurt, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, salt and pepper, stirring thoroughly and evenly to combine the flavors.
