Healthy Lobster Mac & Cheese

Healthy Lobster Mac & Cheese

Serves: 2

Happy Friday Everyone! I hope you had an amazing week! I decided to end the week on a savory note. After eating an abundance of seafood on my trip to Aruba and enjoying quite a bit of lobster while away in Cape Cod earlier this summer, I decided to use my all time favorite shell-fish in this dish! When I hear Mac & Cheese, I always think heavy, creamy, cheese-y and all around comfort food. But during these warm summer months the last thing I want is an extremely heavy dish weighing me down! So, I took this normally fat laden dish and made it light and waist friendly! That way you can still rock those hard earned abs at the beach tomorrow! :)

Healthy Lobster Mac & Cheese

Fit Ingredients

  • 12oz lobster (or langostino tails, which I buy at Trader Joe’s), diced in 1/2 in chuncks
  • 4 oz (1/2 c) low sodium, fat free ricotta cheese (can sub cottage cheese)
  • 2 oz fresh goat cheese
  • 3 tbs nutritional yeast
  • 2 packages Shirataki Tofu Noodles (can sub with regular pasta)
  • 1 head cauliflower (about 400g), riced
  • 2 tbs (13g) ground flax seed
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste

Directions

Set your oven to broil. Line a baking dish with foil. Spray with non stick cooking spray. Rinse your lobster/langostino under warm water (thaw if needed). Drain and rinse your tofu noodles. Microwave your noodles for 2 minutes. Pat the noodles dry with a paper towel. In a bowl mix your ricotta, riced cauliflower, tofu noodles, nutritional yeast and salt/pepper. Toss your lobster with your noodle/ricotta/cauliflower mixture. Spread the mixture into your baking dish. Sprinkle with your flax seed. Crumble goat cheese over the top. Broil for 10-15 minutes or until slightly crispy on top. Serve warm.

I have made this dish two times and loved it each time! The second time I added some thawed edamame to the dish. It gave it a nice vibrant green color and some added kick! It reminds me of the heavy dish that I used to enjoy as a kid on Cape Cod, but without all the guilt! It would pair nicely with some grilled asparagus and some white wine! ?
