I’m always on the look-out for great tasting high-protein sauces to add to my sandwiches, wraps, salad bowls and more. Traditionally, this was where I would turn to mayonnaise or some sort of creamy dressing. But seeing how they’re usually super fatty, I can’t exactly go there anymore….
Thank goodness for greek yogurt though! The tangy-ness, creaminess and texture definitely lends itself to a greater purpose and I’m happy to say I’ve found another such application for this AMAZING ingredient.
I make this high protein togarashi sauce whenever I want a kick in my food, especially something with an Asian flavor profile. Togarashi is a Japanese spice mixture consisting of sesame seed, poppy seed, hemp seed, nori and ground chili pepper.
My favorite way to use this sauce is to mix it in some chopped ahi tuna for a healthy and flavorful spicy tuna!
