Sautéed Wild Mushrooms with Roasted Asparagus

This springy side dish made up of earthy wild mushrooms and roasted asparagus is easy, elegant, and loaded with flavor!

Servings: 6
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 15 Minutes
Total Time: 30 Minutes


  • 1 bunch (about 1 pound) asparagus spears, ends trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped shallots, from 1-2 shallots
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 12 ounces (5-6 cups) thinly sliced wild mushrooms (see note)
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 2 teaspoons fresh chopped thyme
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil for easy clean-up. Arrange the asparagus spears in a single layer on the baking sheet. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with 1/4 salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; turn to coat evenly. Roast until lightly browned and tender-crisp, 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the spears. Let cool slightly, then transfer to a cutting board and cut the spears into thirds. Set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the shallots and cook until softened but not browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the garlic and wild mushrooms and cook, stirring frequently, until softened and starting to brown, about 5 minutes. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of black pepper. Add the wine, and cook until absorbed by the mushrooms. Stir in the cut asparagus, thyme, and parsley. Transfer to a platter and serve.
  3. Note: I buy my wild mushrooms already trimmed and cut. If you're buying them whole, you'll need about 1 pound.
