Do you ever have a recipe that was just somethin’ thrown together in a pinch? Somethin’ never meant to be shared with the outside world until you take a bite of it? That’s these Green Beans with Beech Mushrooms & Olives. This recipe was a solid attempt at cleaning out the fridge and now it will become one of our favorite side dishes.
I had olives, beech mushrooms & green beans staring back at me when I opened the fridge ~ here is the story of their marriage…
This recipe was never meant to be posted.
These clicks happened as soon as I took a taste & saw how very handsome this was.
Some of these photos are even from my iPhone. Posted on Instagram.
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.
All you need to do to make this perfect side dish is sauté some sliced green beans in olive oil….add the beech mushrooms & olives. Top with some sliced green onions.
Serve these beans hot or cold. This side dish would make the perfect picnic or outdoor party salad. Also great for Project LunchBox.
Toss with pasta or quinoa for a full meal.
