Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf

Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf
Cook time 50 minutes
Serves 4

2 tablespoons butter
1 ounce uncooked spaghetti, broken
2 tablespoons minced onion
1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 cup and 2 tablespoons uncooked jasmine rice
1 cup and 2 tablespoons vegetable broth
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2 inch pieces
1/4 cup cashew halves

  • Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Increase heat to medium, and stir in spaghetti, cooking until coated with the melted butter and lightly browned.

  • Stir onion and garlic into the saucepan, and cook about 2 minutes, until tender. Stir in jasmine rice, and cook about 5 minutes. Pour in vegetable broth. Season mixture with salt and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, cover, and cook 20 minutes, until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed.

  • Place asparagus in a separate medium saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until tender but firm.

  • Mix asparagus and cashew halves into the rice mixture, and serve warm.
