Sauteed Beans and Mushrooms

When we do Sunday lunch I love to serve a lot of small dishes which tons of vegetables. Most of the time the food all comes from the farmers market. Serving this way reminds me of Sunday lunch at my mom’s house.  One of the dishes was sautéed beans and mushrooms and it was a great addition to the BBQ seitan we also ate.

1 pound beans, tops and bottom cut off (I used yellow and purple beans
2 tbsp. olive oil
½ pound shiitake mushrooms, stems removed and sliced
¼ cup yellow onion, minced
Salt & pepper to taste
Steam the beans until el dente. Heat oil on medium heat in a skillet. Cook onions and mushrooms for a few minutes until mushrooms are browned.  Add the steamed beans, salt, pepper and cook another 3 minutes.
