I love Chinese food. I always thought it was good for you too. I mean, come on, what's bad about vegetables and rice? Then I found out that most Chinese food is loaded with sugar, salt, and saturated fats. No wonder I love it so much!
What's a fit and fearless woman to do? Find a healthy alternative, that's what! The following recipe is one of my go-to's when I need something quick and easy to make during the week. The best thing about it is you can use whatever vegetables you have on hand, and within 10 minutes you've got a tasty meal.
You will need:
1 pouch of precooked whole grain brown rice
3 Tbs low sodium soy sauce
1 Tbs sirachi (only use if you like spice)
2 Tbs olive oil, divided
10 ou medium shrimp, peeled & deveined
2 large eggs, lightly beaten (or 1/2 cup egg whites)
1 1/2 cups pea pods
1 cup sliced onion
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 cup shredded cabbage
1/8 tsp salt
3 cloves garlic, crushed
Microwave the rice for 90 seconds.
Combine the soy sauce and sirachi in a large bowl.
Combine 1 tsp oil and shrimp in a medium bowl and toss to coat.
Heat a wok over high heat and stir fry the shrimp for 2 minutes.
Add shrimp to the sauce mixture and toss to coat.
Add 1 tsp oil to wok and scramble/cook eggs until set (about 45 seconds). Add to the shrimp.
Add 1 Tbs oil to wok and stir fry the rice for 4 minutes. Add the rice to the shrimp.
Add last 1 tsp of oil to wok. Stir fry the veggies, salt and garlic until cooked. Mix everything together and serve.
I hope you enjoy this as much as Jim and I do!
