Having a bank of fast, easy and economical side dish recipes is a boon to the home cook and this dish is tasty as well.
Asparagus and Mushroom Rice – One cup of raw rice is enough for four servings and, with the addition of 1/2 lb of mushrooms and about 1/4 lb of asparagus, you’ve got your vegetable allotment as well.
If you have leftovers, you can freeze them in single serving portions and thaw and reheat with minimal effect on the texture.
Delicious with BBQ’d pork chops or roasted chicken breast

Looks good. I feel hungry for rice now.
An occasional rice dish is a well deserved treat in your carb reduced diet.
Maybe in a week or two, this has been an indulgent weekend.
I just found out that rice actually freezes very well, I had no idea! What a great, quick side dish.
Cooking for one is challenging cause you always have leftovers so it’s nice to have something that you can portion and freeze away. I’ve also frozen risotto and even cooked sushi rice with good results.
