    Chef-Betsy's Note:

    Somthing I made up the other night. It turned out tasty so I thought I'd share. This made 2 good-size servings that I served along with salmon. It could serve 3 with smaller portions. For the mushrooms, I used half a 10 oz. bag of the pre-sliced ones at the grocery store. NOTE: Don't overcook the asparagus, or it will be mushy and you won't like the dish.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Cut 1 to 1/1-2 inches off the bottom of the asparagus spears, discard those pieces. Then cut the spears into 1 inch pieces with a diagonal cut.
    2. 2
      Heat olive oil in medium sized pan, over medium high heat.
    3. 3
      Toss asparagus and onion into the olive oil in the pan and stir to coat well.
    4. 4
      Use salt and pepper to your liking.
    5. 5
      Continue stirring, and when the asparagus and onion mixture sizzles, drop in the butter and stir it around so it melts, blends in and coats the aspargus mixture.
    6. 6
      Now turn the heat down to medium or medium low (depending on your stove), cover the pan and let it simmer for a few minutes. Stir it a couple times and only cook until the asparagus turns a light green and softens a bit.
    7. 7
      Now stir in the mushrooms, raise the heat back to medium high and cook (stirring) just until the mushrooms begin to shrink and soften.
    8. 8

      I used 1 small shallot (~3 Tb) and 8 oz mushrooms. It was very good and the asparagus and mushrooms were cooked perfectly. I think next time I will decrease the olive oil to 2 Tb.
