Grown Up Grilled Cheese with Basil Aioli is full of flavor and good nutrition. Fortify your grilled cheese with healthy substitutes like replacing processed cheese with part-skim, all natural mozzarella cheese and high fat mayonnaise for Greek yogurt. A handful of spinach adds beneficial fiber and vitamins and minerals. And swapping white bread for a high fiber, low carbohydrate tortilla helps to prevent your blood sugar from spiking.



  • 2 tbsp Greek Yogurt - Plain
  • 4 leaf fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 garlic clove
  • 1 Lemon Wedge Juice, Raw
  • 1 pinch sea salt

  • 3/4 cup spinach, baby, raw, full nutrient data, organic
  • 1/3 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 4 Part Skim Mozzarella Cheese, sliced

2 Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat.
3 Spread basil aioli over one half of tortillas. Top with spinach, tomatoes and then cheese.
