We frequently use Dreamfields noodles for spaghetti in a healthy fats (THM S) meal and add cheese to it to make it nice and creamy/cheesy. But sometimes we need to have a healthy carbs meal (THM E) which means little fat but still desire to have some creamy spaghetti.
We decided to cook up some of this brown rice pasta we got from Aldi and it turned out nice and creamy.
We bring the water to boil and then add desired amount of pasta, which we break in half or thirds.
We try to drop them in a slowly so they turn into a big clump. Then give them a stir, still trying to separate the noodles as much as possible. And boil to desired doneness.
It gets pretty cloudy.
Drain but reserve some of this creamy water.
You can save some of the water in a measuring cup or such, so that you don’t have too much water in the noodles but don’t toss too much either.
Then add tomato sauce and season as desired.
We add onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, salt, and a pinch of baking soda.
We added a few slices of deli low fat lunch meat to our plate with a side salad which we’d rubbed with a bit of MCT oil.
It was nice and creamy and hit the spot. Adding nutritional yeast is always a good idea too.
I’ll show you how I add meat to this and keep the flavor but keep it low fat too. I just have to make it again and take pictures.
I hope this helps you add some healthy carbs into your diet in a healthy way.
