I have been trying to find ways to get more healthy vegetables into our diet and what better way than to have stir-fry!
For this recipe you will need...
1 pound of Shrimp (peeled, deveined, and tails removed)
Brown Rice, cooked
Low Sodium Soy Sauce
Chow Mein Noodles
4 tablespoons of Coconut oil
Pepper to taste
The first thing you are going to want to do is put your vegetables in the oven. To save time, I already had my vegetables cut up and waiting for me in a zip-lock bag in the Fridge. I preheat the oven to 350 and mix the vegetables with 3 tablespoons of warmed coconut oil, soy sauce, pepper, and 1/4 cup of water. I pop them in the oven for about 30 minutes or until tender.
When there is about 15 minutes left of the vegetables, I start the water to cook the Brown Rice and cook that until done. I bought the boil in bag Brown Rice that only takes 10 minutes. If you are using something different, you may need more time.
While the rice is cooking, I start to cook my Shrimp. If you don't like shrimp, you could use Chicken Breast meat or even steak.
I simply cooked my shrimp in a saute pan with coconut oil, soy sauce, and pepper to taste until it was all pink in color but still tender, about 3 minutes per side. Do not over cook the shrimp or it will be tough.
I almost had to tie my hands behind my back so I wouldn't eat all of the shrimp before dinner! ;) Ha!
I added a little bit of pepper, and a little bit of soy sauce to my finished brown rice as well....
When the vegetables are tender, take them out of the oven. Don't they look so good!?!? Mmmm!
I put everything on the table separately and let the kids get as much of each as they wanted. The kids loved the shrimp and also ate their vegetables! That makes for a happy Mommy!!
You can garnish the dish with chow mein noodles or sesame seeds... It was certainly Delicious!!
I hope you enjoyed this recipe!
