Shrimp and Brown Rice Paella
10-15 shrimp in their shell
red bell pepper, chopped
garlic cloves, finely chopped
cups Progresso™ vegetable broth (6 cups if you didn’t soak the rice overnight)
In a frying pan or paella pan, lightly sauté the shrimp in olive oil.
Remove them after a few minutes and set aside. In the same oil, add paprika, grated tomato, carrot, bell pepper and garlic, sauté for a few minutes.
Add brown rice. Stir with a wooden spoon and add the vegetable broth. Add salt to taste.
Add shrimp once the liquid has been absorbed. Cover with a clean kitchen rag so the rice can finish cooking. Serve immediately and garnish with chopped parsley.
- Soak brown rice overnight to speed up the cooking process.
