  1. Wash and sauté the mushrooms.
  2. Blanch the asparagus. Cut off the heads and finely dice the stems. Set aside one-quarter of the mushrooms and dice the rest.
  3. Combine the asparagus stems and diced mushrooms, the chopped confit shallots and confit garlic and the finely diced dried tomato.
  4. Season everything. Arrange on the brioche sticks that have been lightly toasted.
