Reviews for Asparagus with Mushrooms
"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 tastes great and so simple."
"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."
"Thank you Betty Jean, this is delicious. I used baby bellas, next time I will try white button. Yum!"

"I added a bit more sugar to give it a sweet taste, but overall it was really good."
