Asparagus, Baby Bella, & Red Onion Stir Fry

Tired of the same old side dish vegetables?  This is good enough to turn into a meal by serving with rice and/or perhaps adding tofu or chicken.  I was doing some shopping in my new favorite health-food market Jimbos, and in the vegetable section they had about a pound of asparagus, mushrooms, and red onions chopped-up, shrink-wrapped, and ready-to-go for $8.95.  It looked fantastic.  Granted it was all organic, but I just couldn't bring myself to pay that price.  So I made it myself.  Come to think of it, I'm not sure how much money I really saved since I did buy all organic ingredients.  However, if you are not able to buy organic don't worry -- red onions and asparagus actually made the 15 most clean list (be sure to flip through all the slides to see the top 15 cleanest foods).

Asparagus, Baby Bella, & Red Onion Stir Fry

1 package/bunch asparagus
1 small to medium red onion
1 (8 0z) container of baby portabella mushrooms
olive oil

1) Wash asparagus. On a diagonal cut the tough ends off (usually a couple of inches).  Continue with the same diagonal cut and make 1/2 to 1 inch pieces leaving the tip whole.

2) Gently wash mushrooms, trim tough ends (usually 1/4 to 1/2 inch) and slice 1/4 inch thick.

3) Coarsely chop red onion.

4) Heat 2 to 3 Tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat for 1 minute.  Add all of the vegetables to the pan coating all of the vegetables with oil.  Salt and pepper to taste, and stir fry for about 5 minutes or until your preferred doneness. 


  1. oh YUM... that sounds delightful

  2. It is! I'm going to have to make this again a post a better picture. It was still steaming in the pan when I took this picture so it looks a bit blurry.
