"This vegetable side dish is delicious. I had never used ginger with asparagus, and I was pleasantly surprised at the delightful pop of flavor. I omitted the sugar; we don't use much sweetener in anything. I also cooked the asparagus and mushrooms together rather than in stages. Will make this again as it was a great side dish to accompany grilled steak and roasted potatoes...a great "special" dinner!!!"

"This was really good--a nice twist on an already great veggie! I used less ginger (1 tsp.) but will probably use more next time. I also added about 1/3 cup sliced scallions when I added the mushrooms."

"This was very good but more spicy than I like. Next time (and we will make it again) I'll use just 1 teaspoon ginger"
