Asparagus is a favorite vegetable of mine. So are Portobello mushrooms. Put them together in a stir fry and you have a great meal or side dish. I love serving this with some wild rice. This time I mixed the rice right in with the veggies. Yum……..a very simple and satisfying meal.
1 bunch of fresh asparagus
1 large Portobello mushroom
1 clove fresh garlic, minced
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar (or red wine vinegar)
1 box of prepared wild rice (I used Uncle Ben’s) optional
Cut asparagus and mushrooms up into bite size pieces. In a large skillet, add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Add asparagus and mushrooms. Stir around and fry to desired doneness. Add garlic and toss. Sprinkle in the vinegar, salt and pepper. Serve immediately as is, or stir in the PREPARED rice and serve.
