Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup thinly sliced red onions
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ¾ cup medium-grain brown basmati rice
  • 4-6 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 cup cut green beans
  • 1 cup diagonally-sliced asparagus
  • 1 cup peas
  • Handful of fresh herbs
  • Handful of fresh greens
  • Sea salt and ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions and garlic and sauté for a couple of minutes until soft.
  2. Add rice and cook, stirring for one minute until fragrant. Add stock and bring to a boil. Cover, lower the heat, and simmer until rice is just tender, 35-45 minutes.
  3. Add the green beans, asparagus and peas and simmer until vegetables are bright green. Add salt and pepper, taste, and season more if necessary.
  4. Serve while very hot in bowls with greens and herbs. If you are serving later, add greens just before serving. Enjoy!
