Mix up your standard rice and vegetable bowl. This recipe for Rice Salad with Asparagus & Shiitake Mushrooms is from Straight Up Food.

Rice and peas make the base of the salad with asparagus, shiitake mushrooms, and pecans blended in.

Taking a familiar rice-and-peas pairing and adding a nice twist, this recipe is also topped off with a light lemon-mustard dressing.

Ingredients for this rice salad:

  • long grain brown rice
  • green peas
  • green onions
  • water
  • pecans
  • shiitake mushrooms
  • asparagus
  • fresh tarragon

Cook the brown rice first or use left-over rice that you already have in the fridge. Then you can heat up the rice, or not as this dish can be served either warm or cold.

If you don’t have shiitake mushrooms, cremini or brown button mushrooms go well too.

Finally, complete the dish with a blend of fresh lemon juice, mustard, and garlic for that finishing touch to your meal.
