Fresh Green Beans with Wild Mushrooms

In my farm delivery, I received fresh green beans two weeks in a row! I also received some really nice-looking cremini mushrooms. Keith doesn't love green beans, so I knew I wanted to use them for our Thanksgiving meal (since I love them and my parents like them, too). I decided to concoct a side dish with the green beans and mushrooms, and the results were delicious!


Fresh Green Beans with Wild Mushrooms
1 lb. fresh green beans, washed and prepped
1 clove garlic, chopped
7 - 8 cremini mushrooms, washed and thinly sliced
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
sea salt & pepper to taste

Add the olive oil to a medium saute pan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and saute for about 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium and add green beans, saute for 8 - 10 minutes until crisp tender. Add the mushrooms and saute for another 4 - 5 minutes. Serve.

I like to keep the crispness to my veggies, but if you like your green beans really cooked, you can boil them for 8 - 10 minutes before sauteing. Simple and delicious!
