Leftover Rice? Let's Make Rice Bowls!

Here is a simple, quick dish I whipped up the other night out of leftover rice.  I always make a big batch when I make rice so I have some ready to go for the next few meals.  It freezes well and is better than the processed stuff they call 'instant'!

You can use whatever meat, veggie and herb mix you like.  This is also a great use of leftover meat since it's already cooked.  All you have to do is add it in with the rice to heat through.

Rice Bowl with Veggies and Shrimp
Serves 2

  • 2 cups brown rice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 8 ounces peeled shrimp
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 medium onion, diced fine
  • 2-3 cups frozen peas
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp ginger powder

  1. Cook rice as per package instructions if you don't have any leftover on hand.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium high heat
  3. Cook shrimp until pink, toss in garlic
  4. Remove shrimp from pan
  5. Saute onions until soft
  6. Add peas, curry, turmeric and ginger, heat until the peas are just bright green
  7. Add in rice and shrimp, heat through
  8. Serve!

Yup, that's it. Tasty!
