Fried Brown Rice with Shrimp and Broccoli I find fried rice and quesadillas a great way to use up left overs. The quesadillas can be stuffed with virtually anything as long as shredded cheese in involved. As far as fried rice is concerned- same rules apply- anything and everything can be added to it. I think the key is to have a well stocked pantry- it always comes back to that, doesn’t it? In this case I had eggs in the fridge, broccoli and shrimp in the freezer, tamari in the cabinet, garlic and onion in the basket.

I had a cup of cooked brown rice in the fridge and didn’t have any plans for dinner- what was I going to feed my always hungry daughter?? I have never made fried rice out of brown rice but why not?? In fact, I thought with all the loud flavors going on in fried rice, I could totally get away with using brown rice instead of white. so, that is what I did- I chopped some onion and garlic, took out some frozen broccoli florets and 3 frozen raw jumbo shrimps. It was the quickest meal I have ever made. I minced everything and sauteed it with lots of tamari. That is all it took and it was delicious!

My daughter couldn’t stop eating it- and when she told my husband on the phone what she ate- he got very excited as well. I had to disappoint him by telling him I had just enough for her. Don’t worry I didn’t leave him hungry- we ate leftovers from the day before- which were delicious as well.

Everyone was happy..

  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 3 raw jumbo shrimp, cleaned and deveined and chopped
  • ½ cup frozen or fresh broccoli, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ white onion, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 egg, beaten with a pinch of salt

Heat a wok like saucepan and add the oil. Add the onion and garlic and sauté on high heat for two minutes. Add the broccoli and sauté for a minute. Add the egg and stir until the egg is cooked.
