Stir-frying is always a great way to create a fast and healthy meal. Adding edamame to any stir-fry provides cholesterol-free protein and valuable soy protein for heart health. Choose brown rice over white rice for more whole-grain nutrients and fiber. Quick-cooking and instant brown rice is readily available today, so there's no need to use the longer-cooking versions that take 40 to 50 minutes. Shrimp is extremely low in fat yet high in protein, and frozen precooked shrimp is a convenient time-saver.

Makes 3 servings (7.5 cups, about 1½ cups shrimp/veggie mixture over 1 cup rice per serving)

Ingredients

2¼ cups uncooked quick-cooking brown rice
1¾ - 2 cups fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth
10 ounces frozen cooked, peeled and deveined small shrimp (71 - 90 count size)
1 cup frozen shelled edamame
6 ounces fresh snow peas, strings removed
1¼ cups fresh pineapple chunks
½ cup purchased sweet and sour sauce
2 teaspoons canola oil

Directions

1.    Cook rice in chicken broth according to box directions.

2.    Thaw frozen shrimp in cold running water; set aside.

3.    Heat oil in wok or large skillet over medium-high heat.  

4.    Add edamame and cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently.

5.    Add snow peas and cook, stirring constantly, about 1 minute.

6.    Add pineapple, thawed shrimp and sweet and sour sauce. Continue stirring and cooking until all ingredients are heated throughout, about 3 to 5 minutes.

7.    Serve over cooked brown rice.
