Green Bean and Mushroom Saute

Fresh green beans remind me of my grandmother.  When I was younger we would sit at her kitchen table and I would help snap off the ends before she would cook them. Thinking of that makes me smile.  This saute is a delicious (and quick) way to prepare a vegetable side for any dinner.  

"Green Bean and Mushroom Saute"

1 lb. fresh green beans, trimmed
2 Tbs. olive oil
1 medium onion, quartered and sliced
½ lb. fresh mushrooms, sliced
2 Tbs. water
Salt and pepper to taste

1.   In a large skillet; sauté onions in olive oil, over medium heat, until they soften.

2.   Add mushrooms and green beans; sauté for 5 minutes, green beans will brighten.

3.   Increase heat to medium-high; add 2 Tbs. of water to pan, cover and cook for 2 minutes.  Remove lid and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes to evaporate any remaining liquid.

4.   Remove from heat, season with salt & pepper.  Toss.

5.   Serve and enjoy!
