  • Total Time 35m

10 servings, about 3/4 cup each

Simply prepared green and yellow beans with wild mushrooms are easy holiday fare.

Make Ahead Tip: Prepare beans until tender-crisp and store in an airtight container for up to 1 day.

ingredients

  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed
  • 1 pound yellow wax beans, trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces wild mushrooms, such as chanterelle, oyster or porcini, trimmed and sliced (see Substitution Note)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste

directions

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add green beans and wax beans and cook until tender-crisp, about 4 minutes. (Cook for another minute or two if you like your green beans more tender). Drain well.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in mushrooms and cook, stirring, until they release their juices and most of the liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper.

Reserve 1 tablespoon of the mushrooms for garnish. Add the cooked beans to the mushrooms in the pan and cook, stirring to combine, until heated through, 1 to 3 minutes. Season with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Serve topped with the reserved mushrooms.

Substitution note: If you can’t find wild mushrooms, use button or cremini mushrooms.
