hCG Friendly Basic Shirataki Noodle Stir-Fry

This stir-fry can be made in many different ways, and I will post each way (as I make it), but this is the most basic. This has quickly become one of my favorite hCG recipes. Just because you're on the hCG diet doesn't mean you have to cut out delicious flavors, and this recipe really packs a punch!

Check my HCG DIET LOG for more information about the hCG diet.

Basic shirataki stir-fry:


3/4 cup stir-fry mix
1 tbsp chili garlic sauce
1 tbsp sriracha
1/2 tbsp beef base (better to use organic, low sodium beef broth 1/4cup)
3/4 cup water
7oz shirataki noodles


Drain noodles.

**Try not to smell them! It's not too bad, but it is rather unappealing**

In a large skillet, bring 3/4 cup water to boil, add noodles, reduce heat to medium. Drain water after 2-3 minutes. Add 1/4 cup broth (or beef base and 1/4 cup water), chili garlic sauce, and vegetables to pan. Cook for 10 minutes on medium-low heat. You'll need to stir frequently to break up the noodles and get them mixed in with the vegetables. Drain excess liquid. Top with sriracha sauce.

I make this dish at night and bring it to work for lunch the next day. It heats up in the microwave nicely & gives a chance for the flavors to mingle.
