Ingredients For Sautéed Asparagus and Mushroom

There are only a few ingredients needed to make this easy side dish.

  • Whole Baby Portobello Mushrooms
  • Asparagus
  • Fresh garlic cloves
  • Butter
  • White wine
  • Salt
  • Pepper

What makes this recipe special is using whole baby Portobello mushrooms. The whole baby mushrooms are essential in this version. Using them whole gives you a nice, meaty bite of mushroom which absorbs more of the sauce.

Plus it saves you time and energy in the kitchen, not having to chop a bunch.

Mushrooms are a great source of protein, fiber and high in the vital nutrients of cooper, selenium, folate, riboflavin and niacin.

For the asparagus, we recommend fresh, but you could also use canned, or frozen, if that’s what you have on hand. Just wait to add them after the mushrooms have cooked down, so they don’t get too mushy.

Asparagus is also a great source of nutrients including folate – with over 34% of the daily recommended intake in just 1 serving. That makes this a great pregnancy recipe for moms looking to add more natural folate to their diet. It’s also a good source of vitamins A, C and K.

We recommend using fresh garlic in this recipe to get all the flavor and health benefits. Garlic is known to boost the immune system, aid digestion and even help increase milk supply. It’s also high in nutrients like manganese, B6 and vitamin C. Granulated garlic also works in a pinch (or if you don’t feel like chopping).

For spices, we keep it simple with just salt and pepper to let the flavors of the vegetables and the sauce shine through.

Using real butter gives this recipe so much goodness and flavor. Real butter is a good source of vitamins A, D, K and E and can actually help boost the immune system and prevent tooth decay.

Finally the white wine is added for flavor. Any type will do. We used Sauvignon Blanc. Sautéing for a few minutes and cooking off the alcohol makes this recipe still family friendly. If you prefer, you can leave out the wine and use either broth, lemon juice or water.

How to Make Asparagus and Mushrooms with White Wine Butter Sauce

Now let’s dive into the step by step instructions on how to make sautéed mushroom and asparagus in a skillet with a white wine butter sauce.

Start by heating your cast iron skillet on medium low.

Cooking in a cast iron skillet can actually help to increase the iron content of the foods cooked in them by up to 16%. Don’t have a cast iron skillet? These are some nice cast iron skillets that are really affordable.

Add 2 tbsp of butter and the mushrooms, asparagus and garlic to the skillet.

Then season to taste with sea salt and pepper.

Allow to sauté for about 5-7 minutes, stirring ever so often, as needed.

Next add an additional 2 tbsp of butter. Allow to sauté until the butter melts. Then, give it a stir and add in the white wine.

Allow it to bubble and sizzle, stirring every couple of minutes until almost all the wine has evaporated and a sauce has developed.

Serve warm with your favorite dinner recipe.
