Asparagus Pilaf

I also suspect that orzo (rice shaped pasta)would be very good here in place of the rice. Dont cook it first, just add some extra water in with the broth and simmer until orzo is cooked.

2 1/2 c. cooked quinoa
1/2 c. cooked rice
1/2 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic
Olive Oil
2 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 carrot, grated
1 c. chicken broth (Edward & Sons bouillon cubes make an excellent vegan substitution)
1 lb. asparagus, cut into 1 inch pieces (the thinner the better)
1 can garbanzo beans, lightly mashed

Saute onion, garlic, and carrot in olive oil until tender. Add broth and asparagus and cover. Simmer over low until asparagus is tender. Add quinoa, rice and lemon juice and stir, simmer, uncovered until liquid is almost absorbed. Add beans and simmer until liquid is gone.
