HECK YEA to one-pot fried rice!
If you are a regular here on the blog, you might have seen one of my nice rice posts; Africans run on rice, OK. We don’t play when it comes to this food, in other words, we use every means necessary to make it legendary. The (traditional) Nigerian fried rice is a recipe after my heart, but sometimes, there aren’t just enough hours in a day to make it happen because it is a little complex, YEAH. So, therefore, this one-pot fried rice recipe is a super quick version of our beloved fried rice. OH, and you may need another small saucepan for sautéing the shrimp.😊
In the view of the busy-ness of life, work-life balance, (bland) healthy and (palatable) not so healthy foods, I got you. Not only is healthy eating essential but, also needs to be tasty and timesaving. In today’s recipe, I am happy to share with you healthy afro-fusion meal that isn’t going to take all day to make. I wish I can make it for you, while that is not an option right now. I am more than happy to show you simple and straightforward ways to easily eat healthy meals. Also, this very recipe is so close to my heart (AGAIN) because my mother loves shrimp (both fresh and dry), and she never hesitates to add it to rice. It is important to realize that adding shrimp to this dish is optional but totally worth it. In general, do not overindulge in shrimp goodness; they are also high in cholesterol.
What you may need:
For today’s one-pot fried rice I used shrimp, you can use any protein really. In fact, in the past I have used chicken, beef, and liver; I would typically prep these proteins like the same way I will be prepping the shrimp today (sautéing). Without question I know you would agree with me that protein (shrimp in this case) is an excellent addition to this meal. Not only is shrimp a high-quality protein, it equally great for individuals that are on their weight loss journey because it has lower calories than regular meat.

Mixed Vegetables.Mixed vegetables are the heart of every fried rice; they make them fanciful and flavorful! Click To Tweet I have in various different times in the past used fresh and frozen vegetables for this dish, and it comes out very delicious. In other words, feel free to use what you have on hand. Personally, I love seeing the mixture of carrots, peas, green beans, bell peppers, etc., when it comes to my fried rice. Finally, this fantastic meal would not be complete without rice itself. I love the long grain parboiled rice.
In reality, this dish is a simple yet classic way to entertain your family and your guest on a beautiful day like this.😁😋
