Green Beans with Mushrooms

This week our CSA share from Rise and Shine Farm included a heaping portion of fresh green beans. Here's one easy and delicious way to serve them. This recipe is adapted from one the Penzey's catalog.

1 lb. fresh green beans
8 oz. container of fresh mushrooms, white or brown, sliced
1 Tbsp butter
1/4 tsp granulated garlic
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp salt

Stem and wash the beans. Steam them for about 15 minutes until tender-crisp. Set aside. Melt butter over medium heat in a large sauté pan. Add the mushrooms and sprinkle with garlic, pepper and salt. Cook for about 10 minutes, until the mushrooms are golden and fragrant. Five minutes before serving, add the green beans, tossing well to coat. Cook until the beans are heated through.
