Roasted Green Beans and Mushrooms – a nutty and crunchy side dish, a perfect accompaniment to your Thanksgiving turkey.
I cannot believe that Thanksgiving is this weekend, well at least for us Canadian folks. Thanksgiving, then Halloween, then Christmas. Where has the year gone? I remember when I was a kid my mom used to say to me all the time, “Wait till you’re older, and you’ll see that the days will go by faster and faster.”. I had no idea what she was talking about at the time because summers used to seem like they would last forever, semesters at school seemed to never end. But now I know, the days are flying by, and so are the years.
Enough reminiscing though, if you want to call it that. However, since Thanksgiving is soon approaching, I thought I’d share a yummy side dish to go along with that turkey, these roasted green beans with mushrooms. I made this recipe last year around the same time, so it seems like it’s the right time of year for these types of side dishes.
This recipe is fabulous. I would even eat these veggies as a snack. The string beans are somewhat nutty in flavor, and there’s nothing I love more than roasted mushrooms, they are crazy good.
- 1/2 lb green beans ends trimmed
- 2 cups chopped crimini mushrooms
- 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 450 F degrees.
- Toss all the ingredients together and spread them over a large cookie sheet.
- Bake for 20 minutes.
If you love mushrooms like me, try these Red Wine and Garlic Mushrooms.
