Asparagus-Mushroom-Leek Sauté

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Jan Marie

We have made this in the past with green beans but my daughter doesn't like "squeeky foods" so we substitued asparagus. The flavor combinations make a great side dish and a nice alternative way to cook asparagus.

I have to admit, I had never cooked anything with leeks in it and was afraid this might not fit our taste buds. I was pleasantly surprised! This is so good! The directions were easy to follow and we didn't change a thing.
