This easy green bean and mushroom recipe is quick and filling for any weeknight dinner, especially when it is cold out. The beauty of this dish is that you can add whatever ingredients you like to make it different, but at the core, the recipe remains the same.
A Green Bean and Mushroom Recipe That Doesn’t Let You Down!
For this dish, use whatever mushrooms you enjoy the most. Whether they are button white, shiitake, maitake, porcini, or oyster, you should clean them properly and halve them. If you aren’t sure what to look for, make sure to choose mushrooms that look firm, and that don’t have a slimy appearance, any wrinkles, or bruises.
When it comes to the green beans, you should also look for bright-colored beans with a smooth appearance. The size doesn’t matter, but go with whatever looks better. In a pinch, even frozen green or canned green beans can work, but the texture will change.
This simple dish only requires you to use olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper. As mentioned earlier, though, you can add whatever you like! If you feel like making this dish Asian-inspired, add some hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and red pepper flakes. Or you can go more country-style and add some cream, cheese, and breadcrumbs. You could also sprinkle some halved almonds and cranberries to make this dish more holiday-like.
Since the oven will be doing the hard work for you, all you need is to place everything on a baking sheet and bake for about 20-25 minutes. This time will vary, though, depending on the size of your vegetables.
Serve these green beans and mushrooms warm as a side dish, or mix in some chicken to turn it into a casserole! This recipe will never get old at home!
