Green Beans with Mixed Mushrooms

 

This simple side borrows the casserole’s basic flavors, but gives them grabbed-from-the-garden goodness with field-picked beans, thin-sliced onions, and earthy creminis and shiitakes.

 

Ingredients

 

2 tbsp. olive oil

4 sprig fresh thyme

2 large onions

1 clove garlic

8 oz. cremini mushrooms

4 oz. shiitake mushrooms

salt

pepper

3 lb. green beans

Directions

 

Heat covered 7- to 8-quart saucepot of water to boiling on high.

Meanwhile, in 12-inch skillet, heat oil on medium-high. Add thyme and onions; cook 10 to 12 minutes or until browned and very tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in garlic and cook 1 minute. Add mushrooms and cook 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Remove and discard thyme.

Add green beans and 2 teaspoons salt to boiling water. Cook, uncovered, 8 to 9 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Drain and rinse with cold water. If making ahead, transfer mushroom mixture to medium bowl. Cover; refrigerate up to overnight. Transfer beans to resealable plastic bag; refrigerate up to overnight.

When ready to serve, return green beans to saucepot and add mushroom mixture, stirring to combine. Cook on medium until beans are heated through, stirring occasionally.
