Food, I made it from Pinterest

Roasted Beans with Mushrooms from Pinterest

I have quite suddenly, despite loathing them for years, become a great fan of green beans. After been combing the web for different ways to serve them up, I landed on this Pin on Pinterest.

It’s really simple, really delish and looks super impressive. A combination I love.

It’s from

Roasted Green Beans with Mushrooms, Balsamic, and Parmesan
(Makes 4-6 servings, recipe created by Kalyn)

8 oz. mushrooms, sliced in 1/2 inch slices (I used brown crimini mushrooms, but any mushrooms will work)
1 lb. fresh green beans, preferably thin French style beans
1 1/2 T olive oil
1 T balsamic vinegar
salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
2 T finely grated parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 450F/230C. Wash mushrooms and let drain. While mushrooms are drying, trim ends of beans and cut beans in half so you have bite-sized pieces. Cut mushrooms into slices 1/2 inch thick.

Put cut beans and mushrooms into a Ziploc bag or plastic bowl. Whisk together olive oil and balsamic vinegar and pour over, then squeeze bag or stir so all the beans and mushrooms are lightly coated with the mixture. Arrange on large cookie sheet, spreading them out well so beans and mushrooms are not crowded. Roast 20-30 minutes, starting to check for doneness after 20 minutes. Cook until beans are tender-crisp, mushrooms are cooked, and all liquid on the pan from mushrooms has evaporated. Season beans to taste with salt and fresh ground pepper, then sprinkle with finely grated parmesan. Serve hot.

The best part is you can throw these in the oven along with whatever main you are also cooking at the same time. I’ve tucked them on the bottom rack under roast beef, tri-tip and roast chicken 25 min before the meat was done and perfection!

Here are mine with broccoli!

So far I have made them with and without mushrooms and I’ve also made them with bacon (with and without mushroom) and with broccoli with excellent results. This is my new go-to veg. I heart Pinterest.

Do you have a great way to serve green beans?
