Crispy Garlic and Mushroom Green Beans

Photo: Jennifer Causey

Yield

Serves 4 (serving size: about 1 cup)

We love meaty shiitakes here, but any mushroom will work. Crisping the garlic adds great texture to the finished dish.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons sliced garlic
  • 2 cups sliced shiitake mushroom caps or cremini mushrooms
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 12 ounces haricots verts (French green beans), trimmed
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
