Simple Summer Dish
This is Ten Minute Tasty Asparagus and Brown Rice from 101 Cookbooks. Instead of brown rice, I used quinoa because it is a quick cooking grain that is high in protein. Although it comes together quickly, it does take more than 10 minutes. More accurately I would say it takes 10 minutes of cooking time, after you have gotten all your mis en place (a French culinary term for having everything all prepared).
I love the freshness of this dish and the tahini dressing, and it's asparagus season! The kids, on the other hand, don't really care for it. Violet mostly ate almond slivers and Wren ate mostly asparagus. But I can't please them all the time!
