Super-Quick Brown Rice With Asparagus, Chickpeas, and Almonds
15 mins (prep 15)
12 ingredients

Discovered on Heidi Swanson's "101 Cookbooks" website, I adapted to add a little more flavor punch. This has been a crowd-pleaser many times over, even with people who "don't like asparagus!" It's tasty served at any temperature, making it a great addition to a potluck meal.
