This 'health-i-fied' wok rice dish features Shirataki noodles also known as knojac. The intention is to cook over high, hot heat to attain a smoky flavor. No matter how you cook it, fresh tomatoes and basil, veggies, coconut oil, and Tamari, give you a flavorful, filling side.



  1. In a bowl, whisk the eggs and egg whites with ½ teaspoon salt.

  2. Heat a large wok or skillet over medium-high. When hot, add half the coconut oil, then pour in the beaten egg. Cook for 15 to 30 seconds, allowing the bottom to set slightly, before stirring and turning until just set. Break up the egg slightly, then remove from the wok and set aside.

  3. Heat the wok again over high heat. Add the other half of the coconut oil, along with the onions, and stir-fry for 1 minute, until slightly softened. Add the garlic and chiles and stir for 15 to 30 seconds, until fragrant. Next, add the tomatoes and 1 teaspoon of salt, and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, tossing every now and then, until the tomatoes are softened. (Reduce heat to medium-high if it starts getting too smoky or the garlic begins to scorch.)

  4. Add the Shirataki rice, Tamari, and half the basil, and season with 1 to 2 teaspoons of salt, to taste. Reduce heat to medium-high and stir-fry for 5 to 6 minutes, allowing the Shirataki to soak up the tomato juices. As the liquid cooks off, the Shirataki rice will char (though less so if using a nonstick pan) and develop some smoky flavors.

  5. Add the egg and remaining basil and toss for 1 minute. Turn off the heat and check seasonings, adding some black pepper and more salt if needed. Serve immediately.

  • Cherry tomatoes can be added whole, as they will burst while cooking. Cut up 5 or 6 of them in the beginning just to add moisture during cooking. 
  • Unrefined coconut oil has a low smoke point, so it is better not to use the organic variety for this recipe or whenever you cook with a hot stove.
  • You can easily cut back on the salt for this recipe.
  • Stir-fry dishes are meant to be cooked quickly over high heat with almost constant motion, hence the use of a wok, which makes turning food easier. It’s best to have all your ingredients prepped and nearby when you begin cooking so you can move through the cooking process quickly and develop nice smoky flavors vs. burning.
