Ingredients

  • 1 lb. asparagus
  • 1 lb. mushrooms
  • 2 Tbsp. sesame oil

For the garlic sauce

  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 Tbsp. tamari (or soy sauce)
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Optional: 1 Tbsp. cornstarch (for a thicker sauce)

Instructions

  • Make the sauce: mince garlic, and add all sauce ingredients to a small bowl. Stir to combine and set aside.
  • Halve or quarter the mushrooms, and cut the asparagus into 1-2 inch pieces.
  • In a large skillet or wok over med-high heat, add 2 Tbsp. sesame oil.
  • When hot, carefully add the mushrooms and cook for about 2 minutes.
  • Add the asparagus. Stirring often, cook for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the sauce and cook for a couple more minutes, or until vegetables reach desired tenderness.
  • When serving, there will be sauce remaining in the pan that I like to spoon over the veggies (or rice/quinoa if you’re using!)

Notes

For gluten-free: use tamari
