This creamy, cheesy, one-pot dinner recipe has everything you need in a meal... Veggies, protein, and FLAVOR!
1 1/2 cups finely chopped cauliflower
1 cup diced onion
3/4 cup fat-free or nearly fat-free chicken broth
1/2 cup uncooked brown rice
1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, drained, patted dry, chopped
1 tsp. chopped garlic
1/8 tsp. salt, or more to taste
1/8 tsp. black pepper, or more to taste
6 oz. raw medium-sized shrimp, peeled, tails removed, deveined
2 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup fat-free sour cream
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
In a medium nonstick pot on the stove, combine all ingredients except shrimp, cheese wedges, sour cream, and basil. Add 1 cup water and stir well. Bring to a boil.
Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and allow to simmer until rice is just cooked and veggies are tender, 30 - 35 minutes. Add shrimp to the pot and mix well. Re-cover and continue to cook for about 5 minutes, until shrimp are fully cooked.
Add cheese wedges and sour cream, and stir until cheese has melted and both ingredients are evenly dispersed. Add basil and gently stir. Continue to cook, uncovered, for about 2 minutes, to allow the basil flavor to develop.
If you like, season to taste with additional salt and pepper. Serve and enjoy!
