Sautéed Shallots and French-Style Green Beans

My mother used to make a standard inexperienced bean casserole yearly for Thanksgiving. You already know the one…with canned cream of mushroom soup.

Again then, I simply liked it, however as of late there are in all probability 100 causes I might by no means go close to it. We like cleaner meals as of late, and I do know you do too. : )

This 12 months, I’m creating an very simple inexperienced bean skillet aspect dish. It’s really easy, it could simply turn into a year-round staple round right here.

See what you assume…

I’m utilizing natural French-style inexperienced beans from Complete Meals, however most grocery shops have them. This type is sliced lengthwise into skinny strips, however you should utilize any inexperienced beans you want, together with Haricots Verts.

Double this recipe for a bigger crowd.

And if you wish to kick it up a notch, make this particular Cremini Mushroom Sauce with Shallots and Madeira Wine – fabulous over these inexperienced beans (in fact!), and in addition over mashed potatoes or Toasted Bread Stuffing with Potatoes, Candy Potatoes, and Recent Herbs.

I hope you’ve got a really great Thanksgiving, and please let me know what YOU are making for Thanksgiving this 12 months! : )
