Asparagus Cashew Pilaf

Posted by trktos on 19-September-2010

Fixed a pilaf last night, it was pretty tasty. And relatively easy (except for the oddly un-roast-able cashews I ended up trying to brown on the stovetop, after about 4 or 5 10-minute sessions in the oven at 350 to 425??? Maybe our oven is broken?)

Adapted from this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 3 ounces spaghetti noodles, broken into quarters or smaller
  • 1 cup rice
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, diced
  • handful sun-dried tomatoes, diced
  • 2 1/4 cups water + 2 vegetable broth cubes
  • 2 bunches asparagus, chopped into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 cup roasted cashews
  • 1/4 c vegan margarine
  • salt, pepper

Instructions:

  1. Melt margarine over medium-low heat.
  2. Add noodles, cook until they start to turn golden brown.
  3. And onions, garlic and tomatoes. Cover and cook a few more minutes.
  4. Add rice. Cook about 5 minutes, to toast.
  5. Add water, cubes. Cover and bring to a simmer.
  6. Reduce heat, cook without removing cover, 20 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile, stir-steam asparagus.
  8. Combine rice, asparagus and cashews.
  9. Add salt and pepper to taste.
