Green Beans and Mushrooms Braised in Cream is the Original Green Bean Casserole with Fresh Ingredients
Next time you have a fabulous Thanksgiving turkey roasting in the oven, try Green Beans and Mushrooms Braised in Cream instead of same-old Green Bean Casserole. This recipe features fresh REAL food, and is made on the stovetop instead of the oven for days that your oven is currently busy (like Thanksgiving day).
‘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 overcooked 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 sweeter 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.
