  • 1 pound green beans trimmed & cut into 1 ½-inch pieces
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 large shallot minced
  • 12 ounces crimini mushrooms thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons minced flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme leaves
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoons ground pepper or to taste


  • Prepare a large bowl of ice water.
  • Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the beans and cook until tender-crisp, about 2 minutes (depending on the thickness of the beans). Drain into a colander and immediately transfer the beans to the bowl of ice water to stop them from cooking further.
  • Drain the beans again and set aside.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the shallots and mushrooms. Cook until the mushrooms are tender, 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Add the green beans and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Add the parsley, thyme, salt and pepper, and stir for combine. Cook for an additional minute.
  • Serve hot or at room temperature.
