Shrimpin It!

Can you make a healthy, delicious shrimp dinner in about 30 minutes? Sure you can! Check out my recipe for shrimp with tomatoes, spinach, and rice.

As you know, I follow a mostly vegan diet, but I do eat seafood occasionally and when I have company over, shrimp is my go-to dinner staple of choice.

I make it so often that my sister calls me “Shrimp Girl,” no lie, this is my new nickname!
While shrimp may seem like a fancy food that you break out when you have company, it can be a quick dinner on a weeknight as well. What I love about this recipe is you can serve it when you have company, or, you can throw it together in one pan and cook it up on a random weeknight.

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 can, 28-ounces diced tomatoes – keep juice
1 cup brown rice
1 pound shrimp
1 bag fresh spinach
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add oil. Add onion, cook about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and juice and simmer, stirring occasionally until thickened, about 5 minutes.

2. Stir in rice and 2 ½ cups of water, then return to a simmer. Reduce heat and cover, cooking about 10 minutes (or until rice is tender). Stir in shrimp and spinach and cover cooking until shrimp is pink and cooked through (about 5 minutes). Season with salt and pepper and enjoy!
