Buttery Porcini Mushrooms and Asparagus on Toast [Vegan]
- If your mushrooms are dirty, use a dry pastry brush and sharp knife to gently scrape away any dirt or grit. Cut the mushrooms into slices and set aside.
- Heat a completely dry cast iron skillet or heavy-bottomed frying pan on a low heat and add the mushrooms. Cook for 3 minutes, or until some of the mushrooms take on a little color. If your mushrooms are very big, they may release some liquid. Boil off the liquid for about 2 minutes.
- While the mushrooms are cooking, prepare the asparagus. Snap off the tough ends of the stem and discard. Using a vegetable peeler, shave the asparagus into thin ribbons.
- Once the mushrooms have taken on some color, add the butter, asparagus, and minced garlic. Stir well to make sure the butter is evenly distributed.
- Cook for another 3-4 minutes until the mushrooms are soft and a little golden on the edges.
- Sprinkle on the fresh thyme, season with salt and pepper, and serve on toasted sourdough bread.
