Make this Shrimp & Veggies Fried Brown Rice using leftover brown rice. It’s a quick and easy dinner that the whole family will love!
I’ve got some exciting news to share: WE MOVED TO THE BAHAMAS! Yes, it still seems so unreal at times, but we moved here a little over a month ago and we are loving it. Aldo accepted a job offer in Freeport, Grand Bahama, and I am a stay-at-home mama with Elliot for now. Our cats are here too, and they are enjoying the Bahamas as well.
We are renting a furnished apartment here, and we are still waiting for our belongings to arrive (if you are ever moving internationally, ask me which moving company not to use). Most of the boxes that we are waiting for are my kitchen stuff, and I cannot wait until it all arrives. We’ve been living minimally for the last month, which is fine and all, but I miss my Instant Pot. And my mixing bowls. And my favorite pots and pans. And all my spices.
Grocery shopping has been tricky here, since I have to adapt all my recipe ideas to the limited cookware we have, and even when I do think of a great simple recipe that doesn’t mean that the grocery stores will have all the ingredients. So one of the first things we bought was a huge bag of brown rice, since that goes with everything. And little by little, we are filling our pantry, freezer, and fridge with all of our favorite ingredients.
We’ve been eating a lot of brown rice, so I’ve been making fried rice every time we have leftover rice – it’s a great way to bring new life to boring leftovers. This Shrimp & Veggies Fried Brown Rice is one of our favorite recipes because it is so flavorful and so quick and easy to make.
I’ll tell you a secret though: using brown rice to make fried rice is no different than using white rice. It’s the same easy technique, so it’s a great way to get more whole grains into your diet.
