Recipe Ingredients for Shitake & Asparagus Stir Fry for 3

1/2 pound shiitake mushrooms
1 pound asparagus
2 tbsp canola oil
3/4 pound tofu,
1 tbsp Low-sodium soy sauce
2 tbsp garlic
2 tbsp ginger
1 tbsp white wine
1/4 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp cornstarch

Recipe Directions for Shitake & Asparagus Stir Fry for 3

  1. Stem the mushrooms, and quarter the caps. Place the stems in a saucepan, and add 2 1/2 cups water and salt to taste. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer 20 minutes. Strain, discard the mushroom stems and return the broth to the heat. Bring back to a boil. Add the asparagus, and blanch for one to two minutes, just until bright. It should still be crunchy. Transfer to a bowl of cold water, then drain. Retain the broth.

  2. In a small bowl or measuring cup, stir together 1 tablespoon soy sauce, the wine, sesame oil and 1/4 cup of the broth. In a separate bowl or measuring cup, stir together 1/2 cup of the broth and the cornstarch.

  3. Heat a large, heavy skillet or wok over high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil, and when the oil is hot but not smoking, add the tofu. Stir-fry until lightly colored, two to three minutes. Add soy sauce to taste, toss together for about 30 seconds, and transfer to a bowl or plate. Set aside.

  4. Add mushrooms to the pan, and stir-fry three to four minutes, until just tender and moist. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil, and stir in the garlic, ginger and asparagus. Stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add the tofu and soy sauce mixture, and stir-fry for two to three minutes, until the asparagus is just tender and the mixture is fragrant. Stir the cornstarch mixture again, and add to the pan. Stir just until the tofu and vegetables are glazed, and serve immediately with rice or noodles.

  5. Advance preparation: This is a last-minute stir-fry, but you can make the mushroom stem broth and blanch the asparagus several hours ahead. Everything can be prepped long before you begin to cook.
