Green Bean Casserole sans the canned soup with fresh mushrooms and beans. Heaven.
Heat a pot of water to boiling and place beans in the water to blanch for about 5 minutes. Beans should be bright green and just barely tender. Immediately remove beans from water and plunge into a a bowl of cold water or run under the faucet until cool. This stops the cooking process.
In a medium pan, saute mushrooms in butter and salt until soft and starting to caramelize. Stir garlic and cream into the mushrooms and bring to a simmer. Stir in Parmesan, pepper, nutmeg, and green beans and continue to simmer for about 5 minutes or until the the sauce is thickened and the beans are tender.
Remove from heat, season with more salt to taste and top with french-fried onions.
This is a stick-to-your-ribs, warm-you-up, side dish. This is not the conventional creamed spinach recipe that calls for tons of butter and cheese, it is low-fat and delicious. What is also great about this recipe is that it is a total “pantry” dish that is a quick go-to on a busy day.
