Healthier Shrimp and Vegetable Fried RiceMYFOODDIARY
When finely chopped, cauliflower is similar in size and texture to rice. It absorbs the flavors of the vegetables, shrimp, and soy sauce in this healthier version of fried rice. Adding extra cauliflower is also a great way to stretch your recipe servings further while limiting excess calories. A combination of brown rice and a variety of vegetables keep this meal nutritious and filling…
Tips for the cook: Freshly cooked rice is tender and it breaks easily when stirred. For the best results with fried rice, use leftover rice that has been stored in the refrigerator. To add new flavors and nutrients to the dish, consider experimenting with different types of whole grain rice such as red rice, black (Forbidden) rice, or wild rice.
