This is an adaptation of several recipes... I liked the idea of asparagus and mushrooms, and asparagus with lemon, but all the recipes called for butter and herbs and such. This is very simple. I bet it really isn't a recipe, but hey, it works for me!


  1. Wash and trim asparagus.
  2. Fill a large skillet with about 1 inch of lightly salted water.
  3. Cook asparagus and mushrooms in water, covered for three minutes over medium high heat.
  4. (If you have thicker asparagus, you may need to cook longer.) Drain.
  5. Wipe out pan so that it is dry.
  6. Spray pan with cooking spray and return to heat.
  7. Add lemon juice.
  8. Return asparagus and mushrooms.
  9. Toss to coat with lemon juice.
  10. Serve immediately.

This is very tasty, quick and easy! I added a small onion sliced to this. I barely used any water so I didn't need to drain. I did use a couple of drop of olive oil. Shittake mushrooms is what I used in this. Thanks for a nice and healthy side.
