Harvest Grain Blend with Chicken and Shrimp
Serves 2
  • 1 cup (240ml) of Trader Joes Harvest Grain Blend (if you can't get this, you can use ½ cup of orzo and ½ cup of Israeli couscous)
  • 1 chicken thigh, chopped into small pieces (or if you prefer use ½ large chicken breast)
  • 150g (5.5oz) of raw large shrimp (prawns)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 small carrots, finely chopped
  • 1 small zucchini (courgette), finely chopped
  • 3 ripe vine tomatoes, chopped
  • couple of handfuls of spinach
  • 2 cups (480ml) of chicken or vegetable stock
  • 2 teaspoons of Italian mixed herbs
  • 2 teaspoons of paprika
  • pinch of salt and black pepper
  • spray oil
  1. Heat the stock in a saucepan, add the harvest grain mix and bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer until stock is almost absorbed. Then turn off heat, but leave lid on and set aside.
  2. Spray a large frying pan over a medium high heat with some spray oil.
  3. Add the chicken and fry until lightly golden, then add the onion, garlic, carrots, and zucchini and fry till softened.
  4. Add the tomatoes, herbs and paprika and stir to evenly coat. Turn heat down, add shrimp and place lid over the top just to steam for a few mins until prawns are cooked through.
  5. Stir in the cooked harvest grain blend and a few handfuls of spinach.
  6. Enjoy!!
