Lemony Asparagus Rice

Lemony Asparagus Rice

One onion, chopped
1# asparagus, cut into pieces (I use only the tops)
1 T. butter
1 T. olive oil
3/4 t. thyme
3/4 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
1 c. uncooked rice (I used a brown and wild mix)
1 c. vegetable broth
1/2 of a lemon

Heat the butter and olive oil in a pan, and add the onion and asparagus. Saute until onion just begins to soften. Stir in the thyme, salt and pepper. Add the rice with the vegetable broth and 1-1/2 c. water. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to simmer. Let cook 30 minutes or until rice is done. Zest the lemon over the rice, then squeeze the juice into it. Stir to mix well. Serve. Enjoy!
