Low Carb Shirataki Fried Rice

I like to use shirataki noodles as a rice substitute and they work great in this low carb version of fried rice.

I didn’t use soy sauce in this recipe, but you can if you want, either in the recipe itself or on the fried rice when it is finished.

Low Carb Shirataki Fried Rice

1 package orzo-shaped shirataki noodles (or another shape pulverized in a blender)
2 slices thick bacon, cut into approximately 1/2″ wide pieces
1 tablespoon salted butter
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 heaping tablespoon minced fresh onion or green onion (or 1 tsp dried minced onion)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/16 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
1 large egg

Rinse the shirataki noodles in a wire colander, then drain well.  Set aside.

In a medium skillet over medium heat, fry bacon pieces until done, but not crisp.  Drain the fat, but leave the bacon in the skillet.

Add the butter to the skillet and let it melt.  Add sesame oil and seasonings.  Mix with a large spoon or spatula.

Add the celery and cook until it is slightly soft.  Add the egg and keep stirring until the egg is cooked and in small pieces.

Add the shirataki noodles and continue cooking and stirring until they are heated through.  Serve immediately.

The entire recipe contains about 2 net carbs.  Number of servings depends on how big you want the portions.  There are at least 1 or 2.

You can leave out the sesame oil, but it contributes to the flavor.
