Sauteed Green Beans & Mushrooms
I am not a fan of green bean casserole. I like to taste my vegetables and not the other stuff. This is a simple, healthier alternative for the green bean casserole and takes 10 minutes. Who wants to stay in the kitchen all day and cook while your family is enjoying each other.
Sometimes fresh vegetables scare people, if you are one of those people with green beans, you can get a bag of frozen whole string beans instead. Just skip the boiling part and sautee all ingredients together in a skillet. You can even buy pre sliced mushrooms if you really want to save on time.
Don't over cook the beans you want them to be a little bit firm still, not mushy. I like to add a small sliced onion and use portabella mushrooms instead of regular ones, but you can do either with this, and use what you like and have.
You can top with some sliced almond slivers for a nice presentation if you like.
I would love to hear from you. Enjoy!
