This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf Success® Rice. All opinions are completely my own.


I don’t know about you, but me being a busy mom, I really don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen. Between hauling my children between school and extracurricular activities and running errands plus all the house work at home, and working, there’s not much time in the day left. I still want to treat my family to a good meal though. That’s why I always have Success® Rice in my pantry. It’s one of my go to choices when making a meal for my family. I wanted to share with you one of my favorite dishes made with Success® Basmati Rice.

Success® Basmati Rice is the only brand that is boil-in-a-bag which makes cooking dinner that much easier. If you haven’t had Basmati rice before it’s long and slender and elongates 3-4 times in length when cooked. It has a distinctive fragrance and fluffy texture. With the boil-in-a-bag feature (which is BPA free) you can have rice ready in just 10 minutes without measuring and without any mess. That’s what I call easy for a weeknight dinner. It’s also great to keep on hand for last minute entertaining as well. To find more recipes check them out here.


1 Tablespoon of Coconut Oil
1/2 Medium Onion, Diced
8-10 Asparagus, Roughly Chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 Boil-in-a-bag Success® Basmati Rice
Salt and Pepper to taste

Boil some water in a sauce pan for your rice. Add rice in it’s boil-in-a-bag. Set timer for 10 minutes.

In a medium saute pan, add in the coconut oil over medium heat. After pan is hot, add in onion and asparagus.
After about 5 minutes add in the garlic.
Saute together for 5 more minutes til onions are translucent.

Once rice is done, drain off water and add to pan with veggies.
Saute together for 1-2 minutes until everything comes together, add salt and pepper, and serve.

It’s that easy. If you haven’t tried out Success® Basmati Rice or any of the other varieties available, I recommend you do so. There are 4 varieties available including: Success® Whole Grain Brown Rice and Success® White Rice, and globally-inspired aromatic varieties of Success® Rice, including fragrant Thai Jasmine or Basmati Rice.

Thanks for posting this.

  41. I love basmati and asparagus, though I’ve never had them together like this. I’d use regular rice, though, and not fast cook… fast cooking rice tends to have things in it I don’t want in my body.

  49. Sarah Matos says:

    I’ve never tried basmati rice or even putting asparagus in a rice dish. It looks delicious!

  50. I’m all about quick and easy, especially when it looks this delicious. My husbands favorite vegetable is asparagus and I love it too so I’m off to pin it right now. Thanks Darci!

  51. I tried your recipe with a few minor changes and it was really good! We don’t like asparagus here so I substituted the asparagus for cabbage. I also substituted the Cloves of Garlic for Garlic Powder. I used your recipe as I was getting things together to make. It was really good, however, I felt like it was missing something. I’ve been racking my brain trying to figure out what to use other than asparagus or cabbage. My family really seemed to like it, because it was something different, however, I guess it was just me who thought that it was missing something. If you have any suggestions on what I can replace the asparagus or cabbage for, I would really appreciate your input. It’s a terrific recipe! I gave it a shot and it went over well! Thanks for this recipe and for helping me to make something “different” for a change! I’ve been using a couple of your recipes lately, especially the cinnamon butter recipe! My family flipped over that one and It appears I have to make it quite regularly around here! Thanks for that one as well! I do appreciate all the recipes you have shared! Thanks again, Michele 🙂

  52. Maria Iemma says:

    I love basmatic rice, it has a delicious taste and mixed with asparagus just brings it up a notch

  53. Lisa Konieczke says:

    I use Success Whole Grain Brown Rice in my stir-fry’s with mandarin orange chicken or sesame chicken, it’s pretty good. I want to try your recipe, that looks really yummy and I do love asparagus but don’t have many recipes for it…. now I have one more. Thank you for sharing.

  54. Julie Simpson says:

    My son is recently into cooking and he makes a mean fried rice. He found a recipe and tweaked it and its delicious. I have to show him this because I just bought basmati rice to try so this is serendipity

  55. Paula Adams says:

    We love Basmati rice! This sounds like an easy, mid-week meal with healthy asparagus! Will try this recipe soon!

  56. Oh boy that looks delicious! I love anything with fried rice or rice in general. I’m not a fan of asparagus but I could always substitute!

  57. This sounds delicious and easy enough to make. Love getting those vegetables into the kiddies. Thanks!

  58. ncjeepster says:

    This sounds SO good that I am seriously considering splurging on the (out of season) asparagus so I can make it for our New Years Day get together/ gathering (about 10 people at our place) I think it would be lovely with our grilled Salmon and Lamb Gorgonzola meatballs/ patties. Thanks! Oh and Happiest New Year to you and yours!
