Stir-Fried Asparagus and Mushrooms with Black Bean Garlic Sauce (serves 1-2)
Sometimes after I eat a lot of meat, I like to eat a vegetarian dish. Stir-fry is a quick way to cook delicious and healthy meals if you are short on time or are hungry and need to be fed ASAP!
1 bunch (about 12 1/2 oz asparagus), snap off woody parts and cut into 1 1/2 to 2-inch lengths
12-oz button mushrooms, sliced
3 1/2-oz enoki mushrooms
3/4-oz (or thumb size) ginger, julienne
1/2 C chopped cilantro
1 shallot, thinly sliced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 C chicken stock or water
3 tsps black bean garlic sauce
1/2 tsp sugar
1) Heat a large pan or wok with oil over high heat.
2) Once the pan is hot, turn heat down to medium and add oil, garlic, shallot and ginger, sauté for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
3) Add asparagus, mushrooms, and broth, turn heat to medium high and cook for 5 minutes.
4) Add bean sauce and sugar, cook for 1 minute.
5) May serve with rice.
