Healthy Summer Recipes: Portobellos and Asparagus

Portobellos and Asparagus

Makes 4 (½-cup) servings

Ingredients

2 teaspoons canola or olive oil
3 cups sliced portobello mushrooms (about 2 large portobellos, stems and black gills removed)
2 tablespoons chopped shallots
3 cups asparagus pieces (1½-inch), from about 1 pound (see note)
1 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce
3 (½-ounce) slices nitrite-free turkey (or pork) bacon, cooked until crisp, drained well, and crumbled
1 tablespoon grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Directions

Note

Instead of asparagus, you can substitute 1 (9-ounce) bag (12 cups) fresh spinach. Add to the mushrooms, cover for a few minutes until wilted. Stir well and add remaining ingredients.

  1. In a nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook for about 3 minutes, or until they just start to soften and release their liquid. Add the shallots and cook for another minute.
  1. Add the asparagus and cook for 3 minutes longer, or until the asparagus is just crisp-tender.
  1. Drizzle the soy sauce over the veggies and sprinkle with the bacon crumbles and cheese. Toss well and serve hot.
