Burrata is a type of cheese that originates from Italy and that consists of mozzarella and cream. Very creamy, yet it is not that high in calories. If the Emmental has 248 calories per 100 grams, the burrata displays 285 calories per 100 g, just a little more. Its problem, however, is that, like mozzarella, we tend to consume more. If a classic piece of cheese weighs 30 to 40 grams, a burrata alone weighs 250 grams (or 200 grams for a mozzarella).
If you pay attention to your weight, it is not necessary to banish the burrata at all costs, but simply to watch over the quantities consumed. In this recipe, a burrata can serve 3 to 4 people, which reduces the average portion consumed to 50 g (which is already generous) and have fun limiting the damage :).
# 2 Raw vegetables: for more lightness
If burrata and olive oil can make this entry rich in fat, raw vegetables will, on the contrary, help to lighten it. Rather than accompanying it with bread (very filling and also caloric), accompany your burrata with raw vegetables. Maybe with vegetables (tomatoes and arugula, like here) or, why not, fruit! Here is another light burrata recipe: the mango burrata salad.
