Asparagus Rice

I’m always looking for quick, easy, delicious side dishes.  This certainly fits the bill!

Asparagus Rice

  • 4 cups of instant rice
  • 4 cups of chicken stock
  • 1 bunch of asparagus, cut into pea-sized pieces
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic salt
  • 4-6 tablespoons of butter, cut into slices
  • 1 cup of grated  Parmesan

Place rice, stock, garlic salt, and asparagus pieces into a microwave-safe bowl.  Microwave on high for 10 minutes.

Remove from the microwave and add Parmesan and butter.

Well Duh #1:  You may have to cook longer if there is still water in the bottom of the bowl after 10 minutes.

Well Duh #2:  You can use water instead of stock.

Well Duh #3:  You may have to add salt.  I found it perfectly salty once I’d added the Parmesan.

This makes a perfect bed for just about any entree.  Fish, chicken, or beef.  I served it with Maple Mustard Chicken.  We really loved it!
