Ingredients for 6 servings

* Optional Substitution Note

  • spray avocado oil
  • 1 1/2lb raw jumbo shrimp
  • 1 tablespoon jerk seasoning (OR spicy rub seasoning with low sodium)
  • Rice
    • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
    • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
    • 3/4 cups diced white onion
    • 1 1/2 cups uncooked jasmine rice
    • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock (or veggie stock if doing a vegan version)

Steps

Step 1

Step 2
Step 3

Reduce the heat to medium, then add oil, onions and garlic. Saute for 3 to 5 minutes until the onions turn brown and translucent.

Add the rice and mix to ensure every grain has been covered in oil and onion.

Step 5

Pour in the chicken stock, coconut milk and red beans. Add pinches of sea salt & pepper, then stir and bring to a light simmer. Add the bay leaves, then cover and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, or until all the liquid has been absorbed.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
