Garlic Mushroom Green Beans
I can’t get over how flavorful these green beans are! The sautéd mushrooms add such a richness while garlic is the perfect aromatic. No boring green beans around here! PS: serve them with toasted fried onion pieces to imitate a green bean casserole!
Garlic Mushroom Green Bean Ingredients
I love to use French green beans for this recipe as they are tender and sweet. Classic green beans can also be used! Either way, use fresh green beans for this recipe.
Sliced baby bella or white mushrooms can be used for this recipe.
Since there are minimal ingredients in this recipe, I recommend using freshly chopped garlic. But, pre-chopped garlic can also be used!
Classic salt and pepper help bring these green beans to life.
How to Cook Green Beans
Since the green beans are the star of the show for this recipe, they need to be bright, flavorful and fresh! Following a couple cooking instructions help with that:
- Blanche – Blanching the green beans is what keeps the green beans fresh, crisp and bright green while cooking. No mushy green beans around here! Simply bring the green beans to a boil in a large pot of water for several minutes to cook. Then, transfer them to a prepared ice bath to stop the cooking process. This is what keeps them nice and bright! Here’s a quick tutorial video on how to blanche green beans.
- Sauté – After the green beans have been blanched, add them into the hot skillet to quickly sauté them to not only re-heat them, but get them completely coated in all that garlic and mushroom goodness.
How to Serve Garlic Mushroom Green Beans
Once the green beans are sautéd, it’s time to dig in! Check out these serving variations before digging in:
- As-is – these green beans are so delicious they can be enjoyed just the way they are!
- Faux green bean casserole – top the garlic mushroom green beans with crispy fried onion pieces. Nostalgia and crunch factor all in one!
- Add extra protein – sautéd pancetta or bacon will not only add extra protein, but smokey depth of flavor!
