Brown Rice Medley with Onions, Mushrooms & Asparagus Oh My!!

This is a great dish to have at work for lunch. Just cook up the vegetables the night before and cook up the rice in the micro when it's lunch time. The heat from the rice should heat up the vegetables enough to eat but if they don't, just heat them up a little too. 

Here is what you will need:
1 - 10 ounce package of frozen brown rice. If you can make your own rice, then by all means do so. I have never been able to make brown rice so I buy the frozen stuff. Don't judge me!!
1 tbsp oil
1 medium onion diced
8 ounces portabello mushrooms diced
1 bunch of asparagus chopped in to about 1/2 inch pieces
1 or 2 cloves of garlic minced
salt to taste

Heat the oil in a large fry pan. Add onion and saute until onion starts to become translucent. Add the mushrooms and saute until they start to become tender. Add the asparagus and saute just a minute or two until they become bright green. Remove from heat. Do not over cook them or they will become soggy and that's gross.

If you are using the frozen rice, cook it now and add to the medley. Enjoy.
