Better Than Alfredo
Ingredients (as always, as organic as possible)
Miracle Noodles Fettuccini
½ Cup Dehydrated Mushrooms (fresh are ok too)
½ - ¾ Cup Water
1 – 2 tsp
Celtic Sea Salt
1 Tbl ButterBuds
Two Types of Grated Cheeses ―
I used Parmesan (imported) & Asiago, but there are more.
Romano is also good, but check out your local deli and you’ll find
some Italian hard cheeses you’ve never heard of that will work in
1 Organic Egg
Powdered Coconut Milk
Salt, pepper (black, or cayenne, or both), basil, garlic
In a small container, break up the dehydrated
mushrooms, add the water, Celtic sea salt, and ButterBuds. Shake
well and let sit overnight.
The mushrooms I use are shitake and maitake. Both
are very tasty and great for the immune system.
If you are using fresh mushrooms, this recipe
isn’t going to be as low in calories because you’ll have to sauté
them in garlic, onion, butter, and some olive oil.
Grate the cheeses.
You’ll need about a cup to a cup and a half, loosely packed. I used
just about a cup. But you might want it thicker.
When ready to cook,
heat up the noodles very hot after draining and rinsing (and I also cut them up
with a scissors (because they’re so freaking long!).
Note on Miracle Noodles: When
you pour them into a strainer, you'll notice a fishy odor. Rinsing
them in hot water helps remove the odor and boiling them for one
more minute helps even more. Next, to get your sauce to stick to
them, you must fry them for about 8 minutes stirring until all the
liquid is gone. However, in this recipe, we're taking advantage of
that liquid by adding powdered coconut milk to the recipe right
away. If you don't have powdered coconut milk, but rather canned
coconut milk, then go ahead and fry the liquid out and add the
liquid (about a quarter cup) at the end to stop the cooking process.
You’ll notice that
when you heat them up, they’ll sweat producing more water in the
pot. When that water is hot, add the powdered coconut milk and stir
in briskly. Then stir in the grated cheeses. Add your spices, salt,
pepper, basil, crushed garlic, and stir. Then add the mushrooms and
stir till they’re all covered in cheese. Finally, break the egg and
drop that into it and stir that in. As soon as it has been evenly
distributed, add the half teaspoon of Konjac flour to thicken
everything on the bottom (something you get every time you cook with

is very, very low (usable) carb, filling, and delicious.
