Beech mushrooms are such pretty little things. They have a unique sweet & nutty, elegant mushroom flavor. They go perfect with the stuffed green olives.

The bright greens and reds in this recipe beg to be photographed. I did not want you to miss out on something so simple & delicious.

  1. Don’t you just love discovering a new favorite dish out of a need to clean out the fridge? I love, love olives but have never considered pairing them with green beans and now I see that they’d work very well together. Will have to try this soon–glad you shared!

    Thanks for the link love on my string beans, Marla! :)

    • Heather, I don’t find Beech mushrooms everywhere ~ but when I stumble upon them I gotta grab some. You might find them in Asian markets…

  2. I don’t know which to compliment first — the dish or the photos! It sounds absolutely delicious, and the photographs are stunning! I’m looking forward to trying this recipe :)

  3. Love the combination and colors are stunning! We don’t have beech mushrooms in Turkey, but will try it with regular mushrooms here when it’s green bean season!
