Portobello and Asparagus with Creamy Basil and White Wine Sauce

This recipe pairs Portobello mushrooms with asparagus. I complemented the pair with basil, capers, and white wine. Serve over quinoa, rice, egg noodles, or pasta. Alternatively, serve as a side dish. It’s entirely delicious either way.

  • Vegetarian
  • For a vegan friendly version, omit the Parmesan or use a vegan friendly cheese and use non-dairy milk in place of cream.
  • To boost nutrition, use quinoa flour to thicken, rather than all-purpose flour.
  • To reduce calories, substitute almond milk in place of heavy cream.
