Shrimp Rice and Healthy Soup : Dec 11, 2012

Here is what we ate for dinner today...
Not that no one cares...lol

Shrimp rice AKA Nanna Luna's Rice (courtesy Giada de Laurentis)
And healthy soup that I just whipped up with whatever I had...

This shrimp rice is different!! 
And I loved it. Of course my husband liked it too.
Shrimp cream sauce over brown rice...not only sounds good but tastes good!!
The buttery yummy rice absorbs lemony cream sauce makes

For 2 servings:
1 cup rice
1/2 stick of butter
About 2 cup of chicken broth
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 clove of garlic minced
1 lb of shrimp peeled and deveined
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 tablespoon of hot sauce
1/2 cup whipping cream 
Black pepper

First I sauteed brown basmati rice with 1/2 of the butter until it's golden brown into saucepan...well it's brown rice so it is brown.....but you know what I mean...right??
And add chicken broth and salt. Bring it to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer covered for 20 to 25 minutes until all the liquid is absorbed and rice is tender. And rest covered for 5 minutes.

In a large skillet, melt the rest of the butter and add garlic and cook until aromatic. Add the shrimp, lemon juice, and hot sauce. Cook for few minutes until the shrimp is pink and cooked through. Stir in the cream and heat through. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 

Pour the shrimp cram sauce over the rice:)

The healthy soup is easy.
I just mixed chicken stock, carrots, onion, spinach, kale, peas, black beans, tomato can and cooked. And some herbs, salt and pepper to flavor it.
It doesn't get healthier than that!!!
