Green Beans with Mushroom and Shallots

Normy is not a fan of green beans! So I don’t make them very often. But we always seem to eat the same veggies, so I wanted to try something new, so I went with this…

Got the recipe from here

Once the green beans are done. You want them a little soft, but still crunchy. Remove the pot from the burner and drain in a colander, shaking off any excess water, and set aside.

While the beans are boiling, heat the oil over medium-high heat in a large nonstick skillet.
