Advanced & Core Plan
This is an unbelievably decadent recipe that is also very versatile. You simply won’t believe how good it is over untraditional “noodles”. You won’t even miss the old pasta that puts you in carb overload. It is also a great accent to vegetables which is perfect for wow-ing guests at your house. When people tell you they can’t go grainless – just have them try option 3!
1/4 cup organic butter
3 tablespoons organic cream cheese
1/4 cup organic chicken broth
1 cup organic cheddar cheese, shredded
Sea salt and pepper (to taste)
Additional shredded cheese (for topping)
In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in cream cheese and broth and stir until completely combined and smooth. Reduce heat slightly and add cheese, stirring until melted. Add salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and do one of the following:
Option 1: Alfredo “Pasta” – pour over whole wheat linguini (core plan only) or spiral sliced zucchini (advanced plan). If you don’t have a spiral slicer just slice zucchini lengthwise into thin strips, stack a few of them and cut into ribbons then top with cheese sauce.
Option 2: Cheesy Veggies – pour over steamed vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, kale, spinach, etc. You can also combine veggies and cheese, put into a casserole dish, top with additional shredded cheese and bake until cheese is bubbly. This is the ultimate kid-pleaser!
Wait for it……
Option 3: GOTTA TRY IT TO BELIEVE IT “Mac” and Cheese – Instead of traditional macaroni noodles, simply, cut 2 jars of hearts of palm into discs (or moon shapes by cutting the cylinder in half lengthways then into slices) and boil in filtered water for 5-7 minutes. Drain well and add cheese sauce. Put into a baking dish and top with additional cheese and bake at 350 degrees until bubbly.
