Fresh steamed asparagus sauteed with fresh mushroom, then tossed with fresh tomato and a splash of lemon. A simple and delicious way to serve asparagus as a side dish!

Serves 2

1 bunch fresh asparagus, bottom 3rd of stalks removed and discarded, remainder cut into 1 inch lengths, then steamed till tender but still bright green

1 T. olive oil

2 c. fresh sliced white mushrooms

1/2 c. diced fresh, seeded tomato, 1/2 inch squares

2 t. fresh lemon juice

salt and black pepper

Steam asparagus and set aside.

In medium skillet, over medium heat, melt oil. Add mushrooms, a little salt and pepper, then saute till tender.

Add steamed asparagus; saute 2-3 minutes.

Remove from heat and add tomato and lemon. Stir gently to warm tomato with other ingredients. Salt and pepper to taste and serve.

Notes: Adding tomato after removing skillet from heat still warms the tomato, but keeps it from turning to mush from too much heat.

To seed tomato: Slice tomato into thick slices, then push out seeds and slime of pulp with fingers under cold running water. Dice.
