We found this recipe from an old cookbook and I wanted to make it plant based! Itís really tasty and no added salt besides the vegetable broth. I think you all would enjoy this simple meal. I served it with a side salad.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil (optional– for sauteing, you can use water)
  • 1 cup Arborio rice
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 3/4 cup bite-size asparagus pieces
  • 3/4 cup seeded and diced tomato
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrot
  • 3 Tablespoons sniped fresh basil

Method

Step 1

In a large saucepan cook mushrooms, onion, garlic in hot oil (or water) until onion is tender. Add uncooked rice. Cook and stir over medium heat about 5 minutes more until rice is golden brown.

Step 2

Meanwhile, in another saucepan bring broth to boiling; reduce heat and simmer. Slowly add 1 cup of the broth to the rice mixture, stirring constantly. Continue to cook and stir over medium heat until the liquid is absorbed. Add another 1/2 cup broth and the asparagus to the rice mixture, stirring constantly. Continue to cook and stir until liquid is absorbed. Add another 1 cup broth, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly until the broth has been absorbed. (This should take about 15 minutes.)

Step 3

Stir in the remaining 1/2 cup broth, the tomato, and carrot. Cook and stir until rice is slightly creamy and just tender. Stir in basil. Serve immediately and with a side salad.
