30 Day Low carb Diet Plan - Day 1

Day 1 - Low Carb Meal Plan Recipes


Phony Macaroni and Cheese
1 lb. tofu, firm - well-drained *
2 cups cheddar cheese
2 eggs
1/4 cup heavy cream
salt and pepper - to taste
onion and garlic - to taste
nutmeg - to taste
dry mustard - to taste
cayenne - to taste
*Make sure you use the firmest tofu available for this recipe. You may also want to be generous with the spices and use some extra sharp cheese to liven up the normally bland flavor of tofu.
Drain tofu well, making sure to squeeze out all extra moisture, and slice into small pieces (use a French fry cutter or equivalent for consistent sizes). In a separate bowl, mix together eggs, cream and cheese. Stir tofu pieces into mixture and add seasonings as desired. Transfer mixture to a casserole dish or greased pie plate and bake at 375 for 30 – 45 minutes or until golden brown.
