: Green Beans with Mushrooms

: Simple and Easy…a great bean recipe for all occasions.


  1. 2 1/2 pounds fresh green beans, trimmed
  2. 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms (use Crimini mushrooms for an added oomph)
  3. 2 cloves garlic cloves, minced
  4. 4 teaspoons butter
  5. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  6. 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. Place beans in a large saucepan and cover with water; bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until crisp-tender (I usually simmer for 5 minutes; I like my beans crunchy).
  3. While the beans are simmering, melt butter in a large skillet.
  4. Saute mushrooms and garlic in butter until tender. Drain the beans and add to the mushrooms. Stir in the salt and pepper.
