Last week I shared a recipe with y’all for vegetable korma, which I served with these simple Skinny Samosas. To lighten up the recipe significantly, the samosas are baked instead of fried and stuffed with cauliflower instead of potatoes. There are a million samosa recipes out there and this recipe can be easily tweaked to include your favorite flavors. I wanted something quick and easy so I went with a simple pea and carrot samosa and just used curry powder and garam masala to create the Indian flavors. Also, if you are eating low carb, the pureed cauliflower with carrots, peas, and the spices is delicious all on it’s own. The calorie count on these is really low since it is just veggies and the wonton wrappers which are only 23 calories a piece.

- 2 cups cauliflower florets
- 1.5 cups frozen peas and carrots, defrosted
- 1/2 tsp curry powder
- 1/4 tsp garam masala
- Salt and pepper
- 24 U square wonton wrappers
- 2 U cloves garlic
- 1 U jalapeno, seeded
- 1/2 cup fresh mint
- 1/2 cup cilantro
- 1 tsp sugar
- 2 tbsp lime juice
- 2 tbsp water
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add cauliflower florets and cook until fork tender.
Drain the cauliflower and reserve 1 cup of the cooking liquid. Add the cauliflower to a blender and add about 2 tbsp of cooking liquid. Begin to blend adding more cooking water if needed, being careful to keep the mixture on the drier side. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Fold in the carrots, peas, curry powder, and garam masala to create the mixture for your samosas.
Lay out your wonton wrappers on a large cooking sheet sprayed with coking spray. Carefully add 1/2-3/4 tbsp filling into the center of each wonton. Then close each wonton wrapper by gently wetting the corner with your finger and pushing closed. You can use a fork to make indentations along the edge if you want them prettier.
Bake for 10 minutes or until the bottoms become golden brown. Flip over and cook an additional 3-5 minutes to brown the other side. Serve with the Mint Cilantro sauce.
Meanwhile, add the garlic, jalapeno, mint, cilantro, lime juice, sugar, and water to a food processor and pulse until combined. You can add a little more water if needed or yogurt if you want a creamier consistency.
