Guilt-Free Shrimp (or no shrimp) Fried Rice 

Once in every blue moon, when I had a free Friday night I would always order Chinese takeout and binge watch Netflix movies. I still keep my old traditions, but I’ve made them healthier. Back then, my favorite dish was the shrimp friend rice with extra soy sauce, so I recreated healthy guilt-free version. You can also make this without shrimp if you would like it to be strictly vegan. 

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of minute rice
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 2 chooped bunches of green onions
  • 8 oz. of diced carrots
  • 8 oz. of brocoli florets 
  • 8 oz. peas 
  • 5 tsp. of soy sauce 
  • 2 tbsp. of sesame oil
  • 2 lbs. of shrimp (optional)
  • Black pepper
  • Salt

Directions

  1. Boil 2 cups of water in a pot on medium heat. 
  2. Pour 2 cups of rice in the water and let that cook while constantly stirring. 
  3. Heat a skillet with the 2 tbsp. of sesame oil until it is sizzling. 
  4. In the sizzling skillet, place the broccoli, carrots, onions, and peas and then lower the heat to medium while the veggies cook for 3-5 minutes. 
  5. Add the shrimp to the skillet and allow them to cook thoroughly. 
  6. Place the green onions and peas into the same skillet and allow that to cook on medium heat for an additional 3 minutes. 
  7. Pour the rice and soy sauce into the skillet with the shrimp and veggies and mix well. Cook for 5 more minutes and then you’re ready for Netflix!
