The Secret Filler Ingredient
A Filler Ingredient is a healthy ingredient used to add bulk to a recipe and make it a little bit better for you. Aioli is traditionally straight mayonnaise but as we all know chugging down tons of straight mayo isn't the best for our hearts, waistlines and health in general. So, this recipe uses plain Greek yogurt as a Filler Ingredient which makes the sauce much healthier. It honestly tastes exactly the same but don't take it from me... try it yourself!
Make It Go Further
Have you ever looked at the serving size of a sauce or spread on a nutrition label? Generally, a serving is a tablespoon or two which often doesn't go very far (especially for thicker sauces and spreads!). The secret to enjoying delicious saucy goodness throughout your entire meal (without eating several servings worth) is to add just a tiny bit of water. This thins the sauce and makes it go so much further it is actually shocking. Then you can savor the flavor much longer. Seriously give it a try. You won't regret it!
