Spicy Shrimp & Broccoli Stirfry


Okay, so are you ready for a quick & easy dinner that looks fabulous?  Here’s one to cook up a couple of meals for your week.  Add this to your lunchbox.


  • 4 cups broccoli florets (4C)
  • 2 large red bell pepper, chopped or sliced (4C)
  • 1 cup onion, chopped (4C)
  • 4 cup chicken or veggie broth (low sodium)
  • couple of garlic cloves (freebie)
  • 18 oz large shrimp, peeled and deveined (12P)
  • 4 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated (freebie)
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds (16F)
  • Crushed red pepper to taste


Place your veggies in a pan and saute with chicken broth.  When the onions become soft, add the garlic and ginger.  Stir for a couple of minutes, then add your shrimp and almonds.  Add your red pepper to spice it to your liking.  Cook it up till the shrimp turn pink and then chow down!

This will make 4 meals: each has 3P, 3C, 3F.


  1. Andy :

    This recipe is really really good. The ginger makes it for sure.
    Question on the carbs though – does 1 cup onion really equal 4C? Same question for the peppers and the broccoli. I thought you’d need more of each to get to the 12C included in the entire dish.

  2. Joylyn & Mas :

    Yep Andy–you got it. Our bad.
    To end up with 12C for the dish it should read
    8 cups broccoli florets (4C)
    2.66 cups chopped onion (4C)
    5 cups chopped red pepper (4C)
    Thanks for the comments! YAY for more veggies–yum!
