Asparagus Stir Fry with Shiitake Mushrooms

With the Chinese New Year fast approaching. I decided to share a yummy recipe that is super simple to make and will leave your guest in all. What I love about this recipe is that it doesn't require much prep time and you can easily make it in advance (I would suggest undercooking the asparagus, a little). I first made this recipe during a cooking class with Ling Ling Asian foods in Boston and it was AMAZING! 

I also love that this recipe is something that the kids can help out with. They can easily peel the garlic with a spoon or even assist with rinsing the veggies. This recipe can also be vegan-friendly. You can easily swap out the chicken broth for veggie stock and the oyster sauce for a vegan oyster sauce. Trader goes also have a coconut aminos which is a great option as well to soy sauce. 
I love that you don't have to spend all day in the chicken making this dish and you can easily pair this dish with a meat side or double the sauce and add it to a bed of pasta.
