Recipe makes one serving

Macros per serving:

515 cals - 31g fat - 30g carbs - 29g protein

 

Lower the carbs even more:

Don’t consider 30g low carb? The vegetable mix added 6g carbs, vegan cream cheese 5g, and oat milk 5g. Consider swapping to lower carb veg like spinach and switch the oat milk to almond milk for -11g carbs per serving.

 

Ingredients:

227g low carb noodles (see recipe notes)

2 tbsp vegan cream cheese

¼ cup oat milk

1 cup shredded vegetable mix (see recipe notes)

180g extra firm tofu, cubed

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 tbsp Italian seasoning blend

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

Optional: 1/4 cup fresh herbs (cilantro, parsley, or dill)

 

Recipe:

Preheat the oven to 350 F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

Cube your tofu.

Add your shredded vegetable mix and cubed tofu to the prepared baking tray.

Season with 1 tbsp Italian seasoning blend, salt and pepper.

Toss well to coat and bake for 16-18 minutes.

Tofu should be golden and vegetables crispy, set aside.

Rinse your low carb noodles with cold water and set aside to drain completely.

Bring a pan to medium heat and add noodles, cream cheese and oat milk, tossing to combine.

Add the roasted tofu and vegetables and toss through the pasta.

Continue to cook on medium heat until everything is mixed well and the noodles are warmed all the way through.

Plate and top with fresh herbs and black pepper.
