I came home Monday night and hubby had so thoughtfully made soup for dinner, chicken noodle! I am not crazy about chicken noodle soup and I had soup for lunch on the go. So instead of eating something fast and unhealthy, I looked in my fridge and combined a Brazilian stroganoff recipe to a lower calorie version and shared since it ended up looking so pretty!
Several friends and members of our community asked for the recipe, after I told them it took me 15 minutes to cook, so I promised I would share it!
So here is the second recipe for the year, to be included in our Brazilian Goddess Collection which is going to be published in my upcoming e-book of low fat easy Brazilian recipes!
I hope you enjoy and use it when you come home tired and get tempted to microwave a box or open a can!
1 small onion, diced
1 package of shrimp, tail off and deveined.
1 TBSP of Grape Seed Oil or Olive Oil
1 cup of rice
1/2 seafood broth cube
2 cups of boiling water
1/2 TSP of table cream (found on Hispanic Aisle at Walmart, Target, Shoprite)
Salt and pepper to taste
1 large Broccoli Florette
In order to prepare the meal in 15 minutes you will need to cook both shrimp and rice at the same time!
Heat 1/2 Tbsp of oil, add rice and cook for 1 minute, add broth and boiling water and let it simmer covered. Heat 1/2 Tbsp of oil, add diced onions, sauté the onions and add shrimp, cook in medium heat until water has subsided, add table cream for a creamy texture (or not if you are REALLY watching your calories). In about 12-15 minutes remove rice still hot and use a measuring cup to mold the rice and pour on plate, add the shrimp around it!
Hope you enjoy the recipe and that it inspires you to create your own healthy meals! As usual, give us a Trendy Shout!
