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
