Friday Feast | A Side of Delicious Green Beans and Book Sale

Welcome to Friday Feast in the Tavern! Yes, I love my vegetables and this dish is one I make a lot. It's also a recipe that can be tweaked (as I often profess) to include other ingredients. Once, I sprinkled some cooked bacon throughout. Simply delicious! If there was more room in my garden, I would grow beans.

Green beans, Mushrooms, Garlic, and Leeks

3 gloves garlic, chopped

1 medium leek, washed and sliced

1-2lbs mixed mushrooms (I like to use Crimini, white, and Portobello)

½ lb green beans, washed and trimmed

2 tablespoons Herbed Olive Oil (or whatever your preference)

1 tablespoon butter

Salt and pepper

½ teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)

Grated parmesan cheese

Add butter and olive oil to a frying pan. Toss in the chopped garlic and let soften for about 1 minute.

Add in the leeks and cook for 5 minutes.

Add the mushrooms and cook for 5-8 minutes.

Add the green beans and cook until tender, but still has a bit of crunch. Approximately 10 minutes.

Season with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.

Remove from heat and sprinkle with parmesan cheese and a drizzle of olive oil

To make everything easy peasy, I get my leeks in a package from Trader Joes
