This healthy side dish is great, simple, quick and easy to prepare, plus there are virtually no carbs or calories, and it taste good too. You just may be tempted to have more than one serving. My family and I truly enjoyed this dish.

This is a great accompaniment to almost any protein entree. You will love how fast it comes together. They come in 3 varieties Rice, Angel Hair, & Fettucini, I am sure you will love being creative using them.

Shirataki Noodles will take on the flavor of what ever you add them too. Usually found in the refrigerated section of the produce department.

How to Make RICE & SPINACH (RE-DO) CARB FRIENDLY/LOW CAL

Step-by-Step

  1. You will need a medium to large skillet for this dish. Add 1 tablespoon of butter and olive oil to skillet. These are the main ingredients for this dish.
  2. Measure out grated Parmesan and Shredded Mozzarella, and set to the side until needed.
  3. Prepare the Shirataki Rice Noodles as directed on package, & set aside till needed.
  4. Heat butter and oil in skillet over medium high heat, then add in the chopped veggies, and saute until transparent about 5-7 minutes.
  5. Next add in the Baby spinach, and stir to blend with chopped veggies. Drain excess liquid if desired.
  6. Add in the Shirataki Rice, and stir to mix with veggies. Then add in both cheeses, and stir enough to allow cheeses to melt.
  7. Transfer mixture to a serving dish, and add chopped onions or peppers over the top. Serve while still hot.
  8. Serve with your favorite Entree, I had mine with a Healthy Portion of Meat Loaf. At only 117 calories per serving you just may be tempted to have more than your share. This dish should serve 8 average portions, the calories per serving is 117, The total fat is 8g, The cholesterol is 11 Mg, & the sodium is 261 Mg, Potassium is 65Mg, and the total carb is 4 g, and fiber is 2g, sugar is 1 g, and Protein 6, and the best part of all if you are counting carbs is that the net carbs is only 2g per serving.
