In a large skillet over medium heat, heat olive oil. Saute onion, leek and garlic for 3 minutes. Add rice and pepper and saute for 5 minutes more. In a separate pot, heat vegetable broth to nearly boiling, then remove from heat. Add 7 cups broth and sundried tomatoes to rice mixture. Reserve remaining 1 cup broth. Bring rice mixture to a boil and reduce heat to a lively simmer for 12 minutes, stirring often. Meanwhile, after 10 minutes, combine reserved cup of broth, asparagus, mushrooms and basil in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover loosely with plastic and heat in microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes, until hot but not completely cooked. Add mixture to simmering rice, mix well and simmer about 5 minutes more, until mixture is creamy and rice is just done. Helpful hint: If you dont have a microwave, steam asparagus, mushrooms and basil for 5 minutes, until asparagus is tender-crisp. Add to the mixture along with remaining 1 cup vegetable broth. Continue cooking and stirring until mixture is creamy and rice is done. This was the second place winner in Vegetarian Times recipe contest.
