NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups grain-and-rice blend
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 12 ounces large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 red jalapeno pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon grated peeled ginger
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 bunches broccolini (about 1 pound), roughly chopped
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup coconut water
  • 2 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • Juice of 1 lime
Directions
  • Cook the grain blend as the label directs; set aside.

  • Heat the coconut oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and cook until they just turn pink, about 1 minute per side; transfer to a plate and set aside. Add the jalapeno, ginger and 1/2 teaspoon salt to the skillet and cook until the jalapeno softens slightly, about 1 minute. Add the broccolini and scallions and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened, 2 minutes.

  • Add the coconut water to the skillet and cook, stirring, until the broccolini is just tender, about 2 minutes. Add the peanut butter and cook, stirring, until the sauce thickens slightly, about 1 minute.

  • Return the shrimp to the skillet; cook until opaque and the sauce thickens, about 2 more minutes. Stir in the cilantro and lime juice. Serve over the grains.
