Up your spring veggie game with this delicious combo of fresh green asparagus and woodsy mushrooms in this popular Chinese dish — Roasted Asparagus and Shiitake Mushrooms. So easy and delicious!


  • 1 pound fresh asparagus
  • 5 ounces shiitake mushrooms, cleaned and stemmed
  • 1 large shallot

For the sauce:

  • Juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes



  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. While oven is heating, trim the asparagus stems, and slice the shiitake mushrooms and shallots. Arrange the asparagus spears and mushrooms on a baking tray in a single layer. Top with the sliced shallots.
  3. Make the sauce: Whisk together the lemon juice, dijon mustard, garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Pour on top of the veggies and toss if necessary.
  4. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until veggies are fully roasted. Remove from oven and serve on a platter. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds and lemon zest.


  • Look for asparagus that’s green and firm (not mushy). I like to use thicker asparagus spears for this recipe so they don’t shrink up too much in the oven.
  • Some people like to eat the stems on the shiitake mushrooms. They tend to be very dirty and chewy, so it’s best to cut them off.
  • This yummy sauce is good on many other roasted veggies, like broccoli, cauliflower, and green beans. Or, toss it in a salad for a delicious dressing!
  • Use the leftovers in a salad. Delicious!
