    Source of Recipe


    Recipe Introduction

    Serves 2, can be doubled if needed for more people.

    List of Ingredients

    3 tbsp butter
    1 cup thinly sliced leeks (white and pale green parts only)
    3 cups canned low-salt chicken broth
    1/4 cup long-grain white rice
    10 asparagus stalks, trimmed, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    1 cup diced smoked ham (such as Black Forest)
    1 1/2 tbsp (or more) fresh lemon juice
    1 tsp grated lemon peel


    Melt butter in heavy large saucepan over medium heat. Add leeks; sauté 3 minutes. Add broth and rice; bring to boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until rice is almost tender, about 16 minutes. Add asparagus; cover and simmer until rice and asparagus are tender, about 4 minutes. Mix in ham, 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice and peel. Simmer 2 minutes to blend flavors. Season with salt, pepper and more lemon juice, if desired.
