Reminiscent of fried rice, this quick dish is a different way to enjoy asparagus.
|2 c||asparagus (cut into 2" diagonal slices)|
|1 c||mushrooms (thinly sliced)|
|1⁄2 c||onions (chopped)|
|1||red bell pepper (cut into thin strips)|
|1⁄2 c||celery (thinly sliced)|
|2 c||brown rice (cooked, cold)|
|2 T||tamari (or soy sauce)|
|2 t||peanut oil (or sesame oil)|
Heat oil in large skillet or wok; add asparagus, mushrooms, onions, bell pepper and celery and stir-fry about 5-10 minutes, until the vegetables are cooked but still crisp. Fold in the brown rice and tamari and continue to stir-fry until heated through. Serve hot.
Any type of mushrooms can be used--try shiitakes or morels to make the dish more special.
