Stir-Fries don’t just make an enjoyable and quick dinner meal. They also work well as a wonderfully light and flavorful option for lunch.


  • 1/3 cup uncooked white rice
  • 1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
  • 3 ounces frozen, peeled, deveined shrimp, thawed
  • 1 cup sweet red pepper strips
  • 1 cup snow peas, strings removed
  • 1/3 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch stirred into 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup chow mien noodles


  1. Cook the rice according to package directions.
  2. In the meantime, place a wok or a large sauté pan over high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the oil and tilt the pan so the inside is well-coated with the oil.
  3. Once the oil begins to shimmer, add the shrimp and stir fry for 1-1/2 minutes and then toss in the pepper strips, snow peas and ginger. Cook the mixture for 2 minutes, and then stir in the cornstarch mixture and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  4. Serve the shrimp mixture over the cooked rice, and garnish with the chow mien noodles.
