Guys! This was my first time cooking with fresh mushrooms! Here's a hint from Martha Stewart on cleaning mushrooms: You can simply wipe the caps with a damp paper towel. (But don't rinse them, or they'll become soggy. Yick.)

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 bunch medium or thick asparagus, tough ends trimmed, stalks sliced into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 8 ounces fresh shiitake mushrooms, trimmed and sliced into 1/2-inch-thick pieces
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted
  • salt and pepper

Heat the oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the asparagus and mushrooms, and saute just until tender, 5-6 minutes. Remove from heat. Sprinkle with the toasted sesame seeds, and season with salt and pepper. Serve hot, alongside rice, if desired.

Makes 4 small servings.
