Chiptole Konjac and Cheese (Dairy-Free, Low Carb, Chemical-Free Mac and Cheese)

Typically, mac and cheese is thought to be off limits for those who can't tolerate dairy or follow a low carb diet, but I've found a way to make it that is dairy-free, low carb, and low in calories (and still tastes good!) Basically, it's just another take on my Easy Mac, using Konjac noodles and SmartBeat, dairy-free cheese!
You will need:
1 pack Konjac noodles (or Tofu Shirataki, or Miracle Noodles, or low-carb pasta)
1 Slice SmartBeat Cheddar-flavored Cheese (Or non-dairy cheese of your choice)
A few large grinds of chipotle seasoning (And any other spices you may want- onion powder, dehydrated shallots, etc.)

To prepare, rinse and dry your noodles REALLY well, microwave them until they are piping hot (a minute should do it), break down your cheese slice into small pieces and mix, mix, mix, until the cheese melts and forms a sauce, add your spices, and enjoy! Gotta love 5 minute college-friendly meals!

Oh, by the way, the whole recipe clocks in at like 30 calories if you use Konjac noodles and a fat-free cheese slice (and that's accounting for the fact that the noodles could have up to 5 calories even though they are listed as 0 calorie!) So, needless to say, this is probably best suited for a sidedish, as it isn't exactly a nutritious meal, but a great option for low-carb, dairy-free mac and cheese! Pin It
