Sauteed Garlic Asparagus And Brown Rice Recipe


  • 2 tbsp of coconut oil
  • 1 tsp of cumin seeds
  • 2 large cloves of garlic (minced)
  • 1 bunch of young asparagus (cut into 1 inch pieces and steamed lightly)
  • 2 1/2 cups of cooked brown rice (cook the rice with 1/2 water and 1/2 vegetable broth for better flavour)
  • seasoning to taste
  • 1 tbsp of chopped coriander


Heat the coconut oil in a saucepan and add the cumin seeds. Let the seeds brown a little and add the garlic to the oil. Cook the garlic until it browns a little and then add in the steamed asparagus pieces. Stir the asparagus infrequently for about 5 minutes. Finally add the cooked brown rice and mix thoroughly. Add seasoning and fresh herbs to taste. Serve immediately and enjoy!
