This is one of those recipes that I come across that just sounds plain weird. Take my word though that if you like green beans, mushrooms and olives you're going to love this!
Original recipe found here: http://www.familyfreshcooking.com/2013/04/24/green-beans-with-beech-mushrooms-olives-recipe/
I make this the day before I'm going to have it because the longer it marinates the better it is.
I don't use beech mushrooms just because I couldn't find them so I just use whatever ones I can find.
Green beans with Mushrooms and olives serves 4 4pp or SF +1pp
1 lb fresh green beans with ends trimmed
1 pkg 8oz of mushrooms I chop them in half depending on the size
2 tbsp of good quality olive oil
garlic (original recipe calls for garlic salt but I like less salt so I use chopped garlic)
Black pepper and salt to taste
1/2c sliced green olives with pimento (keep about 1 tbsp of the olive juice)
1/4c green onions sliced thin
Heat olive oil in pan. Add green beans, garlic, sea salt and pepper and cook 5-6 minutes or until softened and bright green. Add mushrooms and olives and olive juice. Toss. Cook for another 2 minutes. Serve hot or cold ( I love it cold) and top with green onions.
You could make it less points with less oil but it really is worth every point :)
