    1 14 .5 oz can Diced Tomatoes,
    15 large Shrimp, raw, thawed and shells removed (remove)

    1/2 Cup diced Celery, , (remove)
    1 large carrot cut in round slices
    Garlic, 1 clove (remove)
    1 TBSP Olive Oil (remove)
    4 Cups Water
    3 Cups of cooked rice


Makes 3 -3 cup servings

Rice is included in the calculations. The sodium calculates out very high but the Penzeys broth paste I use calculates out to 380 mg per serving as I use the least amount and triple the water it calls for to reconstitute it.

Cook the rice in 2 cups of water not included in recipe. Bring to a simmer, turn to low, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Let sit for 5 min. before serving.

While rice is cooking, saute onions, garlic, celery and carrot in olive oil over medium heat til onions are translucent. Add water and chicken broth. ( I use all water and add 1 1/2 tsps. Penzey's chicken broth paste but I didn't know how to calculate that into the recipe info) Add spices , chick peas and tomatoes,and bring to a boil, once boiling turn down to medium heat, add the spinach and cook for 5 minutes. Then add the shrimp and cook for about 5 minutes more. Serve in Very large bowls over 1 cup of rice.

Number of Servings: 3
