I made this sauté using leftovers. I had a bit of cooked rice and steamed asparagus in my fridge. I always keep onions, along with frozen corn and peas on hand.
I sautéed 1/2 of a chopped onion in olive oil, added some frozen peas and corn. Then the leftover rice and asparagus. I seasoned the whole thing only with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. It came out fantastic!
You can use any type of rice in this recipe. I had black rice - so that's what I used here.
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive or coconut oil
1/2 onion, chopped
1/4 cup frozen organic corn
1/2 cup frozen organic green peas
1/4 to 1/2 cup cooked brown or black rice
1/2 bunch steamed asparagus - or use the whole bunch!
Sea salt, and freshly ground black pepper, to taste.
Heat a large skilled over medium heat. Add oil, onion, and a good pinch salt. Sauté for 5 minutes.
Add corn and peas. Sauté for 2 minutes.
Add rice and asparagus and sauté another 2 minutes, or until hot.
Season with salt and pepper.
