Real Food Fast

I've not had time to cook real food lately as I've been doing the aforementioned 12-hour shifts. However, last night (even though I got to the hospital at 5:30 and got home around 5:30) I decided to make some real food. I wanted to make a stir-fry, but I was lazy and didn't want to stand there waiting for the veggies to cook. So, I had a roasted veggie stir fry. I took a couple of heads of broccoli and a fresh-frozen yellow pepper and roasted them in the oven. Then I threw those in a skillet with some frozen shrimp, seasoned it with Nature's Seasoning and then threw some low sodium soy sauce in it. It turned out great! With all those anti-oxidants and anti-carcinogens (anti-cancer agents) in the broccoli, this is a great meal for Cate's ARF. Check it out and see what she's put together in her super mom way! :-) Shrimp and Broccoli Stir Fry
2 small heads of broccoli
1 yellow pepper, cut in strips
2 cups frozen shrimp
Roast the veggies at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes or until crisp-tender. In a hot skillet, add veggies and shrimp. Cook until shrimp is hot and cooked through. Season with desired seasoning and soy sauce. Serve over brown rice. Mango goes great with this!

This is a great easy idea! I love it. I have shrimp in the freezer and I keep putting off using them. This sounds like a plan!!

I always get hungry when I see your pictures! This looks good...I love yellow or red peppers and I might have to get peppers & broccoli and try it out b/c I think I have shrimp that need to be used.

This looks great. And also it seems healthier than just frying it from the beginning?
