Tried a vegetarian substitution

I really like this recipe. The first time I tried it as written, which is delicious I wanted to make a vegetarian version to share with my girlfriend.

For the veggie version, I skipped the shrimp and added chunks of hard boiled egg white (the yolks would just break up and change the texture of the rest of the dish- save them for something else like deviled eggs or egg salad), and also some chunks of lightly sauteed mushrooms. The eggs make up for protein missing from the shrimp, while the mushrooms have a little firmer texture and add a bit of flavor as well.

I substituted the cherry tomatoes with cited mango and added lime juice. For some reason, I didn't think the tomatoes and mangos would go well together but do what you will.

This came together so quickly, 20 minutes including chopping everything up. I love starches so served with brown rice. I also love spicy so I doubled the chipotles. Also, it had a bit too much shrimp for my taste. I'll probably use half the shrimp and add avocado next time. Super bold flavors and healthy.

Easy, Healthy, Quick, Yummy
