Baked asparagus and mushroom

This is not a long recipe. I think anyone can make it without a recipe too. But I am posting it as it is one of my favorite . All vegetables are delicious. That too asparagus and mushroom are special. I think it is in everyone's favorite list and hence it stays in a top value always (almost $ 4 / lb ).  Try this and enjoy  :)

Baked Asparagus and mushroom

before baking

Asparagus - 15 numbers
mushroom - 10
salt - a pinch
Extra virgin olive oil - 1 tbsp + 1 tsp
lemon juice - few drops (optional)

Rinse the mushroom and wipe the moisture using a clean kitchen towel.
There is an unique way to clean the asparagus. (food network TV taught me :) ).
Take an asparagus. Bend it gently until it breaks at one point.
The top portion is edible and the thicker stem can be discarded (instead of discarding the thicker part, we can extract the stock and add it in soups too).
Rinse , pat dry and keep aside.

Coat a baking tray with 1 tbsp of olive oil.
Heat the oven to 350 def C.
Put the mushroom and asparagus in a large mixing bowl.
Mix 1 tsp olive oil with salt, lemon  juice and mix well.
Place the vegetables on the baking tray in a single layer.
Bake for 10 minutes . Then take it out. Toss well. Spread in a single layer and bake again for 5 minutes.
Take out and serve hot.

Serving suggestions:
Serve as side dish with sandwich , soups , pizza, pasta etc.
If chopped smaller this baked dish can be added to salads too.
