Vegetable Rice Simple Side Dish

Recipe by HokiesMom

Found in a torn out recipe from a magazine but I don't know which one now. I love the flavors of this side dish and have tweaked it based on what veggie is fresh or in season. In place of the asparagus I have used snow peas or just used more zucchini and carrots if I could not find nice asparagus.

This is a side dish that can go with anything! Or even be a meal in itself....loaded with wonderful flavors and colors. I loved that you could taste each vegetables individual flavor because they weren't overshadowed by spices or soy sauce. Delicious! Made for Photo Tag. Thanks for sharing!
