Nothing says spring like the first-of-the-season asparagus, paired here with shiitake mushrooms.

  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 lb asparagus
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 shallots or 1 small onion thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 cup sliced, stemmed shiitake mushroom cap (about 8 oz/250 g)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup sodium-reduced chicken stock

Method

Trim off tough ends of asparagus; cut each stalk diagonally into 4 pieces. In saucepan of boiling water, blanch asparagus until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes; drain well.

In wok or large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; stir-fry shallots until softened, about 1 minute.

Add asparagus, shiitake mushrooms, salt and pepper; stir-fry until mushrooms are wilted and asparagus is tender, about 5 minutes.

Add chicken stock; cook, stirring often, until no liquid remains, about 2 minutes.
