Roasted Asparagus And Mushroom

Roasted asparagus and mushrooms are the perfect combination for a delicious and nutritious dish. As a mushroom growing expert, I love incorporating fresh, homegrown mushrooms into my recipes. The earthy flavors of the mushrooms complement the crispness of the asparagus, creating a delightful harmony of tastes.


  • 1 bunch of fresh asparagus
  • 8 oz of fresh mushrooms (cremini, shiitake, or your favorite variety)
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Freshly grated Parmesan cheese (optional)


Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Wash the asparagus and mushrooms thoroughly. Trim the woody ends of the asparagus and cut the mushrooms into halves or quarters, depending on their size. In a bowl, toss the asparagus and mushrooms with olive oil, minced garlic, salt, and pepper until they are evenly coated.

Arrange the seasoned asparagus and mushrooms on a baking sheet in a single layer. Roast in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and slightly caramelized. Be sure to give them a gentle toss halfway through the roasting process to ensure even cooking.


Once out of the oven, transfer the roasted asparagus and mushrooms to a serving dish. If desired, sprinkle some freshly grated Parmesan cheese on top for an extra burst of flavor.

I find that the roasted asparagus and mushrooms are a wonderful side dish for a variety of main courses.

Plus, there’s something truly satisfying about eating vegetables that you’ve grown yourself!
