Broccoli Shrimp Rice

As the weather gets colder, I want to eat something warm, something soothing. Rice is one of my year-round soothing foods and adding some vegetables and proteins would make perfect dish for a busy weekday dinner.

Do you know broccoli has twice the vitamin C of an orange, almost as much calcium as whole milk, and contains anti-cancer agent? Like other vegetables, broccoli has a number of nutrition so it is best when eaten raw, because cooking and processing destroys some of its antioxidants. But cold salads are not for winter so I cook with it in my dip, soup, noodle, and rice.

Broccoli Shrimp Rice

2 cups cooked rice (white or brown)
2/1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped broccoli
6 jumbo size shrimps
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup grated cheese
pink salt and pepper to taste

I got jumbo size shrimps from Costco but you can use any size of shrimps.
