Turn a fluffy Idaho® potato into a meal by stuffing it with broccoli florets
2 large Idaho® potatoes
1 cup fresh broccoli florets
1 green onion, thinly
3/4 cup chicken broth
2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
rice wine vinegar
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/3 cup fresh or frozen cooked shrimp
or 1 (6-ounce) can shrimp, drained
2 teaspoons diced pimiento (optional)
Scrub potatoes; pierce several times with a fork. Wrap each potato in a microwave-safe
paper towel; arrange potatoes 1 inch apart. Microwave on HIGH for 6 - 8 minutes,
turning and rearranging once; let stand for 2 minutes.
With a fork, pierce the skin in the form of a cross. Press the ends of the potato
toward the center, lifting and fluffing the meat of the potato.
Combine broccoli and onion in a 9-inch microwave-safe pie plate; cover and microwave
on HIGH for 3 - 4 minutes, or until tender. Drain.
Combine chicken broth, soy sauce, vinegar and cornstarch in a 4-cup glass measuring
cup, microwave, uncovered, on HIGH for 2 - 3 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
Pour sauce over broccoli; stir in cooked shrimp and pimiento. Spoon mixture over
