Random Recipe

In our quest for healthy, low carb meals, we eat a lot of stir fries. This was my creation tonight.

String Bean and Shrimp Stir-fry
1 16 oz. bag Prince Edward Island Blend Vegetables (green beans, wax beans, & carrots)
1 12 oz. bag fully cooked shrimp
1 onion coarsely chopped
3 4 oz. cans of sliced mushrooms, drained
1/4 c. canola oil
1/2 t. salt
1/8 t. black pepper

Heat the oil in a large, heavy sauté pan over medium heat. Add the vegetables and the onion. Cook stirring occasionally until the onion is soft and starting to brown. While the vegetables are cooking, run the shrimp under warm water to defrost and remove the tails. When the vegetables are ready add the mushrooms, the shrimp, and the salt and pepper. Continue cooking until it is hot through (about three more minutes).

Sounds delicious! We are a big fan of stir-fry's, as well, because they are quick and healthy. I'll have to try this one!

I love stir-fries too and we have tons here as well! I am going to try this one, but I'll have to use a different meat (thinking chicken?)...

@Emma - Yep! Chicken would be a good substitute.
