Asparagus with Mushrooms in Olive Oil

(Zeytinyagli Mantarli Kuskonmaz)

Asparagus with Mushrooms in Olive Oil
1 bunch asparagus, cut off and discard the thick end about 2 cm, peel, cut in 2 cm long chunks
1 cup mushrooms, brushed, cut in 4s
50 ml extra virgin olive oil (half for cooking, half for after)
1-2 garlic cloves, chopped
3 tbsp water
1/2 lemon zest

Saute the mushroom with salt and olive oil for about 2-3 minutes on a little bit over medium heat in a medium sized pot. Add in the garlic and saute until the smell of garlic comes out. Then add the asparagus and water. Cook for 15 minutes over a little bit under medium heat with the lid on. Turn the heat off. Sprinkle salt, pepper and lemon zest on top and pour the remaining olive oil, then toss. Let it cool down and place on a service plate. Serve with any kind of beef, chicken and fish.

Hi Filiz,
Thank you:)
As you know Ekmek Kadayif is a Turkish Dessert which was made in Diyarbakir region first time around 18. century. I may post in the future. But I don't know how to make Ekmek Kadayif in Cyprus.
On the site, below the google ads on the right, there's a search box.
So you can search on my site if "TC" is selected, it will help you to
find any recipe, or some information about the spices/herbs that I have posted:)
Take care,
