Lemony Rice With Asparagus

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by aHardDaysNight

Fresh and citrusy, this packs a flavor punch! It is delightful, but must be served immediately. I found that the lemon flavor disappears the next day. Enjoy!

I made this exactly as posted, using the Uncle Ben's boil-in-bag brown rice. This was a delicious, flavorful side dish that was creamy, but not runny or watery. I didn't need to use any of the cooking broth at all. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for sharing. Made for Fall PAC 2011.
