Brown rice with shrimp

What to do when you don't have time or too many ingredients around the house. Surely you had busier days, as it was for me. Searching through the pantry I found a bag of brown rice so I came up with the idea to make an association with some shrimp (I admit ready cleaned and favorite) and a few fresh tomatoes picked from my grandmother's garden.

A few words about brown rice & # 8211 contains many health benefits being recommended by nutritionists at the expense of white.

Unlike white rice, brown rice is whole grain, which means that it contains all 3 parts of the seed, being richer in fiber and nutrients such as vitamins and minerals. Brown rice contains fewer calories, is gluten-free and high in fiber.

If I kept telling you how good brown rice is, let me tell you what we need for this recipe.


    • 200 gr brown rice (for 2 servings)
    • 10-12 shrimp
    • 2 cloves of garlic
    • 2 matching tomatoes
    • 1/2 onion
    • Olive oil
    • Salt and pepper
    • Chilli
    • Thyme

    How we prepare:

    "How to prepare brown rice (trick) 100 ml of barley is boiled in 250 ml of water"

    I cooked the rice over medium heat for 25 minutes.

    Before the rice boiled, I put the olive oil, onion and garlic in a non-stick pan, which I left over medium heat until golden. I added the diced tomatoes and let the sauce blend for 2-3 minutes. If you like spicy food, add a few chilli flakes, season with salt and pepper to taste, then add shrimp. Because I chose my favorite shrimp, I left the sauce on the fire for only 3 minutes to combine the flavors.

    After boiling the rice, I left it for a few more minutes in the bowl in which it boiled and with the help of a fork I aerated the grains to become independent.

    I placed the rice on a plate, put the shrimp sauce on top and garnished with a few sprigs of thyme. This is all !

    Recipes with flowers and shock fruits

    125 grams of flour
    2 eggs
    1 tablespoon oil
    1 glass of blond beer
    1 tablespoon powdered sugar

    Shock flower "champagne" (shocked)

    (John Seymour - Return to Origin, The Complete Book of Self-Sufficiency)

    Of course the shock has nothing to do with the champagne itself, but it is very refreshing in summer and you don't have to wait long before you can drink it.

    15 shock flowers (in full bloom, picked on a very hot day)
    1 kg of sugar (for such a refined drink white sugar is preferable, not brown sugar)
    1-2 lemons
    3 tablespoons wine vinegar

    Put the flowers in a bowl together with the added lemon juice and the grated lemon peel (obviously without the white skin). Add sugar, vinegar and 5 liters of water, then leave for 24 hours. Strain the juice and put it in bottles with a cork or screw and leave it for two weeks. Do not add yeast, the flower yeast is enough. Drink the shock in no more than three weeks.

    They come from shock flowers

    (John Seymour - Return to Origin, The Complete Book of Self-Sufficiency)

    Pour 5 liters of boiled water over an equivalent volume of shock flowers. Allow to cool, then press the mixture to drain the water. Add 2 kg of sugar, 250 grams of raisins (optional) and the juice of 3 lemons. As the flowers contain virtually no nutrients for fermentation and as sugar is not enough, add yeast nutrients if you have one tablespoon to 5 liters of wine. Then, after the temperature has dropped to 24 ° C, put the yeast. The best is the wine yeast bought. Put the wine in a canister with a fermentation funnel in your mouth and let it ferment. Take out the wine and bottle it when it's ready.

    I come from shock grains

    (John Seymour - Return to Origin, The Complete Book of Self-Sufficiency)

    3 kg of shock grains
    1.5 kg of sugar
    5 l of water
    60 g of citric acid or lemon juice

    Pour hot water over the berries and then pass with a mash to cover and leave to stand for 24 hours. Add sugar and yeast and leave to ferment. The more it ferments, the better. When it has finished fermenting, extract the drink leaving the sediments on the bottom of the vessel and pull it into bottles. This procedure is applied to any type of wine.

    Therefore, shock is a plant with multiple uses in the household, and not only in the kitchen. In the past, for example, shock flowers, leaves and fruits were also used for painting. Other ideas, which we can't wait to try, I found out by reading David Seymour's work & # 8220Return to Origin, the book of self-sufficiency & # 8221: other fruits cooked together with shock grains get better flavor an excellent sauce, which can be stored for a long time as long as it is kept in airtight containers.

    Other edible flowers are zucchini, which can be filled with meat and / or rice. If you haven't tried them yet, you can test our recipe by stuffed pumpkin flowers.
