Just a simple veggie side dish I make once in awhile. Served it with Grilled Chicken tonight.


1 pound fresh asparagus spears; steamed 6 to 8 minutes
1/4 cup Vegetable oil; or olive oil
1/4 pound mushrooms; quartered
salt; to taste
black pepper; freshly ground
1 teaspoon sesame seeds; toasted until golden brown

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



Cut the asparagus into 1 inch lengths. Heat oil in a skillet or wok. Stir in asparagus and mushrooms. Stir for four minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste and sesame seeds. Toss gently.


Sometimes I will add a little soy sauce.

Made this with pan seared codfish with cream sauce. Perfect accompaniment. Didn't have the sesame seeds, but it was fine without them. I will try to add them the next time though. I used coconut oil. Delicious!

Heat oil in large pan and sauté mushrooms in oil without stirring until the edges become golden brown. Don't pile them - give them room. Then add in the asparagus. Much better.

Fixed this tonight with a few adjustments. I don't sauté in oil. I always use veggie broth. Added Shoyu sauce, garlic and a little lemon juice. Served it over forbidden rice. Yummie for such a simple dish!

This sounds like a cool recipe. Blake, could you add more details for us novices - for example what temparature are you heating the oil to.

I cooked in olive oil and butter and added a bit of white cooking wine. We ate it over sourdough toast. This is very simple and yummy.

I made this on Sunday... I think I over cooked the Asparagus just a little but it was still wonderful :)

Delicious - be sure not to over cook the Asparagus, it should still be firm.
