I wanted to eat something healthy tonight. Still struggling with my blood sugar but at least I started my wheat-free diet already last March 1. I plan to be ambitious next week. I am convincing myself to give up rice.
I checked my blog and chose to cook Broccoli with Shrimps.
I adjusted the recipe a bit.
Broccoli with Shrimps
1 head broccoli, cut into florets and soaked in salted water
1/2 t. Sugar
Rinse and cook the broccoli in boiling water with sugar for 1 - 2 minutes, covered.
Drain and set aside. (Do not cover the vegetables again or else the greens will change color.)
150 g. Shrimps, peeled
1/4 t. Salt
1/4 t. Sugar
1/2 T. Cooking oil
Marinate shrimps in cooking oil, salt and sugar for 10 minutes.
Heat 1 T. Oil in a wok and stir fry the shrimps until translucent. Set aside.
1/2 C. Water
1 t. Sugar
1/2 t. Knorr Chicken Powder
1 T. Pantai Oyster Sauce (I prefer this brand.)
1 t. Cornstarch
Combine all the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl.
In the same oil and pan, pour the sauce and let it thicken.
Arrange the shrimps on the center of a plate, the broccoli florets around them.
Pour the sauce over the shrimps.
I paired the broccoli dish with fried rice.
Ham Fried Rice
4 C. Day old cooked long grain rice
1/4 C. Cooking oil
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic chopped
1/4 C. Carrots, chopped
1/4 C. Broccoli stems, peeled and chopped or green peas
1/4 C. Red pepper, chopped
1 t. Salt
180 g. Ham, chopped (I used Farmland Black Forest Ham from S & R)
2 eggs, beaten
1 t. Sugar
2 T. Spring onions, chopped (for garnishing)
Heat the oil in a wok.
Sauté the onions, then the garlic.
Add all the vegetables and salt.
When vegetables are half cooked, add the ham and continue sautéing for a few minutes.
Pour the beaten eggs and do not stir. Let it set until 50% cooked.
Tip in the rice and toss for several minutes. Season with sugar and garnish with spring onions.
