Number of Servings: 4


    fresh (or frozen) green beans
    olive oil
    chicken stock


Reduce salt for a lower sodium meal

I like to use a medium size portabello (about 2" diameter) and usually buy them at Trader Joe's (a package of 6 - i use three for this recipe).

I used a 16 oz package of Trader Joe's fresh organic string beans. Frozen strings beans work as well

Use water if you don't have chicken stock

Substitute or add zucchini for variety.


Prep vegetables:
cut string beans into 1"-2" pieces
slice onion
slice mushrooms
slice garlic

Coat a large skillet with about 2 tbsp of olive oil and add string beans. Let them cook on medium heat for a few minutes and then add the onions, garlic, and about 1/2 of the salt. Stir, put a lid on the pan and let the vegetables simmer, stirring occasionally. When onions begin to caramelize, add the chicken stock put the lid back on and let them simmer another 5-10 minutes. Remove vegetables from pan, put in another 2 tbsp of olive oil - add mushrooms and remaining salt. Saute until tender, put the vegetables back into the pan and toss with the mushrooms. Let it simmer on low for another 5 minutes or so; or until string beans reach desired tenderness.
