After a couple of weeks in holiday bliss, it's back to reality. With the kids back at school, I am back to working full speed ahead. Since I work from home, I am constantly trying out new homemade lunch recipes. They have to be fast, easy, and healthy. So I was super excited to learn about and create a quick lunch recipe using Minute® Ready to Serve Rice.

Easy Coconut Shrimp Rice
This Easy Coconut Shrimp Rice recipe uses the Minute® Ready to Serve Jasmine Rice, and comes together in just about 10-15 minutes, which makes it great not only for a fast and delicious lunch, but a quick, tasty, and nutritious dinner as well!
If you are making this for dinner, simply make both Minute® Ready to Serve Rice bowls in the pack, and double the other ingredients in the recipe.
I used ingredients that we often have on hand already, and if you don't happen to have some ingredients, it's easy to substitute with alternate ingredients.
Ingredient substitution ideas
* If you don't have baby corn on hand or broccoli, simply use any fresh or frozen veggies you have on hand. This recipe would be great with carrots, peas, snap peas, or red or green peppers.
* If you don't have fresh ginger on hand, it's definitely okay to use ground ginger. Note the difference in measurements for freshly minced versus ground ginger in the recipe notes below.
* If you don't have shrimp, you can substitute any other meat, such as chicken or pork. Or, make it 100% vegetarian!
* You can substitute dried basil flakes for the freshly chopped basil.
If you are working at an office or you're on the road traveling, you can pack a Minute® Ready to Serve Rice, then when you need a quick, healthy snack, heat it up for lunch and add in anything from peanuts, pre-chopped broccoli, baby carrots, and more. So simple, and way healthier than roadside fast food or vending machine snacks! Visit the Minute@ Ready to Serve Rice website for more stir-in ideas.
