Brown Rice with Fresh Asparagus

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at

1 cup brown rice
2 1/4 cups water or broth
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt, as needed
1 bunch fresh asparagus, trimmed and sliced
1 teaspoon soy sauce or black bean sauce, or other seasonings as desired

Combine rice, water or broth, and salt in a covered ceramic or glass bowl with a lid. Cover. Microwave on high for 10 minutes, then on half power for 25 minutes, or until the liquids are absorbed and the rice is done. Set aside. In meantime, steam or gently saute the asparagus slices in a skillet, covered, with 2-3 tablespoons water until just barely tender and bright green. Add the seasoning, and serve with the brown rice. There are so many ready made good quality sauces and salsas that make this a different recipe each time you make it.
