This recipe makes good use of leftover broccoli stalks, but its easily adaptable, so feel free to substitute other vegetables you might have in the fridge—asparagus, zucchini, peas, mushrooms, bok choy, bean sprouts, and jícama are all possibilities. The chewy brown rice has a nutty flavor, and you just can't argue with its antioxidant power and fiber. If you order the brown rice with Chinese takeout, bear in mind that the rice has to be well chilled so the starch hardens and becomes fry-able. Use fresh rice and you wind up with a gummy mess.
TESTED & PERFECTED RECIPE -- A healthier version of the Chinese restaurant-style dish that is typically battered and deep-fried, this sweet and sour shrimp with broccoli is one of the easiest (and tastiest) weeknight suppers you can make. Make a pot of rice and dinner is done. Close
