Are you still dealing with Thanksgiving leftovers? Fried rice may be the perfect way to use up those last bits of peas, ham or turkey from your holiday meal.
Recently, I had some leftover peas, rice, eggs and shrimp in my refrigerator. So I created Easy Shrimp Fried Rice with a little help from a packet of Fried Rice Seasoning Mix from Sun-Bird Seasonings.
I just followed the recipe on the back of the packet with a few substitutions like diced onion for green onions and gluten free tamari sauce instead of soy sauce. I healthed up the recipe a bit by using 1/3 egg whites for one of the egg and cutting back on the oil. I also used more shrimp and peas than the recipe called for since I wanted to use up my leftovers.
You can make this even healthier by using brown rice instead of white rice and adding more veggies. (Edamame or frozen mini lima beans would be a great substitute for the peas!)
Sun-Bird Seasonings are a great way to make a quick, healthy meal from leftovers and whatever you have on hand in your refrigerator, freezer or pantry. What’s your favorite way to use up leftovers?
