Who loves green bean casserole? If you answered ‘Me!’, this recipe is for you!
When you have a fabulous main course roasting in the oven, this recipe is a perfect accompaniment. It’s made on the stove top and can be timed so it’s ready when your main course is ready.
I found this recipe while looking for vegetarian dishes to serve our guests that we invited to dinner. It was well received, and our guests asked for a copy of the recipe. So here it is!
‘Braised’ means cooked or steamed with a flavorful broth or cream. This recipe uses all fresh ingredients, nothing canned. So it’s a bit of a departure if you’re used to the canned green beans and cream of mushroom soup topped with french fried onions. This is definitely a recipe in which you must prepare/measure out all ingredients before you begin. If not, you may end up with burnt or over cooked elements (or both).
It’s fairly simple in that you make your own french fried shallots~ a nice change from the traditional onion. They are mellow and more sweet in flavor, especially when fried in this manner.
After setting aside your garnish of shallots, you’ll cook/steam the green beans and mushrooms in cream, a little lemon juice, minced thyme, salt and pepper. The beauty of this recipe really is the simplicity of it all :0)
I hope you enjoy Green Beans and Mushrooms Braised in Cream as much as my family and I do.
