Pineapple Shrimp Lettuce Wraps and Carrot & Zucchini Bread Oatmeal Recipe

185740_465760496794820_1870132001_a1

I picked up the new Meals for Four Under $15 Recipe Booklet which is part of the Health Starts Here Program when I did my monthly Whole Foods shopping in Virginia Beach.

The Meals for Four Under $15 Recipe Booklet is only found in-store, and I would highly recommend picking it up.  There are great recipes for every day of the week already priced to be under $15.  I already had some of the ingredients on-hand from matching sales with coupons, so I was able to make these healthy and delicious recipes for even less!!

Last week I made 2 recipes from the booklet:  Pineapple Shrimp Lettuce Wraps and Carrot & Zucchini Bread Oatmeal.  I’m also looking forward to trying a Quinoa recipe that I found on the end-cap along with the Meals for Four Under $15 Recipe Booklet.

Pineapple Shrimp Lettuce Wraps

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag Whole Foods Market China Cuisine Shrimp Vegetable Stir-Fry
  • 1 bag 365 Everyday Frozen Brown Rice
  • 1 Tbsp grated Ginger
  • 1 Tbsp grated garlic
  • 2 Tbsp 365 Everyday Value Low- Sodium Soy Sauce
  • 1/3 cup Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 1 can 365 Everyday Value Pineapple Chunks
  • 2 Tbsp scallions, chopped or substitute with Crushed Red Pepper
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce or Bib lettuce
  • 1/2 cup Peanuts, crushed

Directions:

Defrost frozen shrimp and Asian vegetables, as well as frozen brown rice, according to package directions.  Grate ginger and garlic and whisk together with soy sauce, vinegar, pineapple juice from can, and scallions.  In a pan, add pineapple chunks and 2 Tbsp of sauce; cook until slightly brown.  Add the defrosted brown rice, shrimp and veggies.  Pour 1/2 of the remaining sauce into the pan and toss to combine. Tear lettuce into individual leaves and fill with the rice, shrimp and veggie mixture.  Top with crushed peanuts and extra sauce.  Roll and enjoy.  Serves 4.

Hubby and the kids decided we needed more shrimp in the recipe next time.  We all liked that the pineapple gave the dish a nice sweet flavor.

*Unfortunately, my pictures turned out grainy.  I’m not sure what happened with my camera that night.

Carrot & Zucchini Bread Oatmeal

Carrot & Zucchini Bread Oatmeal

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup 365 Everyday Value Steel-Cut Oats
  • 3 cups 365 Everyday Value unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 2 small carrots, grated
  • 1/2 small zucchini, grated
  • 4 Tbsp Raisins
  • 2 pinches of Nutmeg
  • 2 pinches of Cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup toasted Walnuts
  • Touch of Honey, to taste
  • Banana Slices

Directions:

Combine steel-cut oats, almond milk, carrots,zucchini, raisins, nutmeg, cinnamon, walnuts and honey in a medium-size pot; simmer until liquid is adsorbed and oats are fully cooked about 20-25 minutes.  Tops with banana slices.  Serves 4.

When I went to make the oatmeal, I realized I had run out of my Whole Foods Steel-cut Oats so I substituted Irish Oats.  The vanilla flavor from the almond milk gave the dish a nice flavor that was different from other oatmeal’s I’d made.  Sneaking in the carrots and zucchini was also a huge plus since the kiddos had no clue they were getting veggies :)

    up here Pineapple Shrimp Lettuce Wraps and Carrot & Zucchini Bread Oatmeal Recipes & Whole
    Foods Market $25 Gift Card Giveaway – The Coupon Challenge.

    And I do have a few questions for you if
    you tend not to mind. Could it be just me or does it give the impression like a few
    of these remarks appear like coming from brain dead folks?

    :-P And, if you are writing on other online social sites, I would like to follow everything
    fresh you have to post. Could you list of every one of your shared pages like your Facebook
    page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
