Balsamic Green Beans and Mushrooms

This is just a quick and easy side dish that goes well with almost any entrée. It’s our go to for pot luck side dishes as it is so simple to make and warms up well. The balsamic is the key to the dish though so I don’t have any replacement recommendations. I have found a really good balsamic dressing that makes   perfect sauce for these but almost any brand will work. This makes about 4-6 servings.

1 lb fresh green beans
8 oz sliced mushrooms
½ cup sliced onions
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp garlic, minced
¼ cup balsamic vinaigrette dressing
  • In a large skillet, sauté green beans, mushrooms, onions and garlic in olive oil for about 15 minutes or until beans are crisp tender.
  • Add in salt, pepper and dressing. Stir until well combined. Cook for an additional 5 minutes.
  • You could also slow roast these in the oven. To do this: combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until dressing coats vegetables. Spread into a large baking sheet and bake at 400°F for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • You could also cook these in the crock-pot but I haven’t tried that yet.
