Szechuan Shrimp and Broccoli

Eating gluten free is hard. Gluten can hide in just about anything. When I first started eating gluten free I thought if I got no-breaded chicken that I could eat Chinese food. Only to find out there was gluten in the sauce! I am so sad! Chinese is one of my absolute favorite foods! And now I can’t eat it anymore!

Ok I’m sorry for freaking out on you. It turns out there’s such a thing as gluten free soy sauce. Now only if only I could cook we’d be golden.

It turns out there is a recipe that fits my needs. It’s simple, perfect for those of use who aren’t professional chefs… like me.

I found a recipe for spicy Szechuan Shrimp and Broccoli. Now if you hate seafood or broccoli don’t fret. You can always substitute the shrimp for chicken or another meat. The broccoli can be substituted for any other vegetable…. or you can always opt to leaving the vegetables out.

Making this recipe is pretty easy. There are a few ingredients involved but not complicated steps. For the sauve you just put all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk. To make it think you can add some corn starch. Now you start cooking the broccoli in the pan, after a few minutes add the shrimp. And finally, after a few more minutes add the sauce mixture and cook a bit longer. 

You can serve this with rice, I always loved Jazmine, or you can go the healthier route and use quinoa. It’s up to you. This recipe can become unique to what you love. Whether you need it to be gluten free, vegetarian, vegan, or whatever. Experiment with different meats and vegetables, different side dishes. That’s one of the reasons I love this recipe. 

Have fun experimenting!
