  • 2 Tablespoons Parsley

Turn your Rolled Oats into oat flour by blending or processing your oats until they look like flour. Take out your Tuna and drain it. Take out a sauce pan, turn your burner on Medium Heat, and add your Butter into it. Once your Butter melts add in your Minced Garlic and Mushrooms. Stir those around a bit and let them cook for around a minute. After a minute add in the rest of your ingredients aside from your Grated Parmesan Cheese, Mung Bean Fettuccine, and Water. Mix everything together and continue stirring for 2-3 minutes (or until it starts to thicken up). After it starts to thicken up add in your Grated Parmesan Cheese. Mix that in and continue stirring for around a minute. After a minute reduce your heat to Low-Medium and add your Tuna in. Mix your Tuna around and let that cook for around 2 minutes while stirring every 10-15 seconds. Take your Tuna Alfredo off the heat and then take out a large saucepan. Add in and bring 8 Cups of Water to a boil. Once your Water starts to boil reduce your heat to Medium and add in your Mung Bean Fettuccine. Cook your Mung Bean Fettuccine for 8 minutes while stirring it every minute. Drain your Mung Bean Fettuccine and then add your Tuna Alfredo on top. Mouthgasm!

Tips:

  • Make sure not to use a flavored Coconut Milk!

  • I have to write another comment…made this again tonight holy sh*t!!! So good I can’t even believe it’s healthy!! I altered the recipe by using light laughing cow cheese (66g) instead of fat free cream cheese and half the parmensan cheese. Totally hit the spot!!

  • I am a mom of two young picky eaters. It’s been hard for me to make meals that fit my macros and please the kids at the same time. This recipe was a big hit! The noodles smelled funky when cooking but tasted great. Thank you and keep up the great work on the dinner creations!!!
