SHRIMP FRIED RICE

Homemade fried rice is super easy and fairly healthy dish in moderation. I love to make it in large batches for a quick meal or paired with a ton of our favorite veggies and a protein. I use my favorite Turmeric Jasmine Rice to make it, it really adds more flavor than your standard fried rice flavor but feel free to use whatever kind of rice you like. And you’re certainly not limited to only using shrimp either. Use any kind of meat or fish that you love or simply add more of your favorite veggies. There really isn’t one that doesn’t go great with this.

  1. In a large skillet drizzle the bottom with olive oil until covered. Over medium-high heat saute the asparagus, mushrooms, carrots, onion, peas, garlic and ginger until everything is almost softened after about 5 minutes.
  2. Add more oil to the pan if needed before tossing in the rice with the garlic powder, onion powder, and white pepper. Stir everything for about two minutes allowing everything to heat through.
  3. Move the rice towards the outer edges of the skillet creating a reservoir in the center. Add a little oil to the center and pour the whisked eggs. After about 30 seconds when the eggs gets a little opaque, use the spatula to scramble it up in with the rice.
  4. Lastly, add the shrimp, soy sauce and fish sauce. Toss everything until the shrimp is cooked to tender after about 2 - 3 minutes. Add more sauce to taste if neede

ROASTED TARRAGON ASPARAGUS

Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables to enjoy all year round because it goes great with both light dishes and heavier meals like comfort food in the winter time. It also doesn’t require a ton of other things to go with it for it to taste good. For the most part this is my default way of cooking asparagus. Sometimes I will eat this as a side dish, blend it with other veggies to make a soup or simply wrap it in pancetta but one of the best things ever is chopping it up and throwing it in a salad like my Everything Chopped Salad or my Herb Goat Cheese & Beet Salad. Either way it’s super flavorful and of course healthy.

This recipe doesn’t include garlic but a lot of times I will crush one large garlic clove and sprinkle it on top with the rest of the ingredients below. For you garlic lovers, you may want to do this!
