    1 can Stewed tomatoes
    1/4 cup chopped onion

Makes 2 large servings @ 500 ca. each, or 4 smaller servings @ 250 cal each.

Prepare rice as directed (I use Minute Rice - Brown to save time)

Melt butter over medium heat in saucepan. Add flour and stir until brown. Add onion, bell pepper, and celery and cook until all vegetables are soft; about 5 minutes. Add Tobasco sauce (optional) and can of stewed tomatoes. Bring mixture to a boil and continue boiling until vegetables are very soft - about 10 minutes. Add shrimp and reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for 10 additional minutes. Turn heat off, add sour cream and mix well.

Let the Etouffee sit for five minutes before serving over a bed of brown rice.
