Serves: 4 

  • 1 bunch of slim asparagus
  • 300g mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic (minced or pressed)
  • 60g parmesan cheese

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Melt butter and olive oil in the pan.
  2. Saute garlic for 1 or 2 minutes to infuse the oil.
  3. Add mushrooms and garlic.
  4. Cover the pan and cook on medium/low for approx. 15 minutes stirring occasionally until asparagus is tender (cooking time will depend on how firm you like your asparagus).
  5. Sprinkle on parmesan cheese and serve.
  6. (Note: Sometimes some liquid will remain when asparagus is done so I drain the liquid out before adding the parmesan)

Parmesan cheese

Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.

On step 3 it should read, "Add mushrooms and asparagus", instead of "Add mushrooms and garlic" since the garlic had already been added to the skillet to 'infuse the oil' in the previous step. I can't give a review at this time as I haven't tried this recipe yet. My intention is to try it out today but wanted to point out the mistake before it confuses anyone else --- like it did me :/ Hmmmm.....well, it won't let me post this unless I give a rating first. Guess I'll just give it 5 stars since I like all the ingredients - 12 Apr 2015


Very nice, quick and easy, I just added some shredded prosciutto at the end and served it with steak and new potatoes - 15 Jun 2014


A tasty and simple way of doing asparagus. Was extremely easy and required no fussing once it was underway. Had it with steak, chips and sweetcorn. Great. - 12 May 2013
